Do you have insulin resistance? It’s hard to simply answer yes or no, even with a proper diagnosis.

Diagnosing Insulin Resistance

Before providing you the insulin resistance self-test, there are a
few ways your Dr. can provide diagnosis of insulin resistance. These
tests aren’t always conclusive and many times provide false-positives
and/or false negatives.

Let’s take a look at 4 tests you could have your Dr. prescribe:

1. Waist Circumference

A relatively simple test that determines if you have a waist measurement greater than 35 inches.

2. Fasting Glucose Levels

One of the most common tests done that measure glucose levels after
you’ve fasted for a few hours. If your blood sugar is higher than normal
(75-100 mg/dl) you could have insulin resistance.
