About Homa-IR Insulin Resistance Test

Why is the Homa-IR Insulin Resistance test done?

Insulin resistance is not only an indication of type 2 diabetes but may also lead to a number of diseases, such as:

  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Cancer
  • Dyslipidemia
  • Diabetes
  • Liver Disease
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

This test measures the resistance of the cells to insulin. Surprisingly, people who have normal blood sugar levels may be resistant to insulin which is identified by the Homa-IR Insulin Resistance Test. The prime reason is that high insulin levels in the body, even if the blood sugar levels are optimum, indicate that the blood sugar may increase in the future.
Thus, the Homa-IR Insulin Resistance test is done because it rings an alarm on the resistance to insulin in the pre-diabetes stage so that preventive measures can be taken.

What does the Homa-IR Insulin Resistance test measure?

The Homa-IR Insulin Resistance test measures the insulin produced by the pancreas for controlling the blood sugar levels in the body. When the body cell is not responding to the insulin being produced in the body, it becomes necessary for the pancreas to produce more insulin in order to control the blood sugar levels of the body. This condition is known as insulin resistance.

This insulin resistance is checked by this test known as the Homa-IR Insulin Resistance test. This indication can be useful in helping individuals in understanding that their body is prone to increase in sugar levels which may cause diabetes and further lead to other chronic diseases.

Interpreting the Homa-IR Insulin Resistance test results

Interpreting the Homa-IR Insulin Resistance test results

Even though the Homa-IR Insulin Resistance test is an indirect test, it helps an individual in making changes in their lifestyle to prevent diabetes and other chronic illnesses.
The simple interpretation of the test results states, the higher the Homa-IR level, the higher the resistance to insulin. The chart below shows the indication of the Homa-IR levels and their impact on insulin resistance on the body:

Levels Insulin Resistance
<1 Optimal insulin resistance
>1.9 Early insulin resistance
>2.9 Significant insulin resistance

It is also interpreted in the manner that higher the number, the body is using more than normal insulin to maintain the optimum blood sugar levels. The higher levels are also an indication of developing type-2 diabetes in the future. However, it can be reversed by making changes in the lifestyle.
Doctors would make recommendations after understanding the medical history, family medical history, and current lifestyle of the individuals.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
