Are you resistant to insulin? Even with a correct diagnosis, it’s challenging to give a simple yes/no response.
Diagnosing Insulin Resistance
There are a few methods your doctor can diagnose insulin resistance before giving you the insulin resistance self-test. These tests frequently give false-positive results or false negative results, and they aren’t always decisive.
1. Waist Circumference
a reasonably easy test that tells you whether your waist measurement is larger than 35 inches.
2. Fasting Glucose Levels
One of the most popular tests used to check your blood sugar levels after a short fast. You may have insulin resistance if your blood sugar is higher than normal (75–100 mg/dl).
