Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Insulin Resistance Cardio IQ Blood Test (Quest)

This blood test provides several measurements including a calculation of a person's Insulin Resistance Score.  Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body's cells don’t respond well to insulin and can’t easily take in glucose from the blood. As a result, the pancreas produces more insulin to help glucose enter the cells.  Insulin resistance can lead to the development of diabetes when there is too much glucose in the bloodstream.

Results of this blood test include

  • Insulin, Intact LC/MS
  • C-Peptide LC/MS
  • Insulin Resistance Score

It is unclear why some people develop insulin resistance but a number of risk factors have been identified that often have a correlation with IR. Risk factors for insulin resistance include:

  • Obesity
  • Being age 45 or older
  • Family history of diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Heart disease

Not everyone with insulin resistance will develop diabetes.  Lifestyle changes and/or medication can help reduce the likelihood of long-term health complications.  Any out-of-range results from this test should be discussed with your doctor.

Turnaround for this test is typically 4-7 business days.
