Supplement Overview

Click for Blood Testing Information





Insulin is a hormone secreted by the pancreas in response to eating carbohydrates. Insulin facilitates the transport of the carbohydrates and sugars from the bloodstream into the cells. Once inside, the sugars are used by the cells to make energy.

Insulin resistance, the hallmark of type II diabetes, occurs with excessive carbohydrate intake. Insulin, in this case, does not work optimally to drive glucose into the cells and tissues … which results in high blood sugar. This has numerous adverse consequences including: cardiovascular disease, nerve damage and kidney problems.

This blood test measures fasting insulin and is helpful in the diagnosis of insulin resistance and type II diabetes. Excess insulin is defined when levels are equal to or greater than 15 µIU/mL … however, Life Extension’s optimal level is less than 5.

This test is included in the following panels:

  • Male and Female Weight Management Panels

A 12-hour fast is required for this blood test. However, drink plenty of water and take your medications as prescribed.
