Our innovative diabetes tests and panels help you and your patients take a proactive approach to preventing and delaying the progression of diabetes.
Insulin resistance (IR) testing offers significant—and often untapped—clinical value, and it can help you and your patients take action to avoid or change the course of prediabetes and diabetes.1
Quest offers the Cardio IQ® Insulin Resistance Panel with Score, a simple, accurate, and actionable way to assess IR and identify prediabetes and diabetes risk. It’s the only routine insulin resistance score validated against the gold standard.

Patients who have metabolic syndrome are at higher risk of multiple chronic conditions, including diabetes, coronary heart disease, and cancer, as well as stroke. Metabolic syndrome has become increasingly common: its prevalence has risen in every sociodemographic group, and today it is estimated that more than a third of adults in the United States have metabolic risk.2
Some factors contributing to metabolic syndrome are genetic, while others can be modified with lifestyle changes. Quest Diagnostics offers a full range of testing options to help evaluate patients’ metabolic and cardiovascular risk so physicians can take action to help prevent or delay the onset of chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, and can help prevent adverse events such as stroke.
Early identification offers the greatest possibility of success with lifestyle modification. The new Metabolic Risk Panel from Quest Diagnostics Cleveland HeartLab® Cardiometabolic Center of Excellence can help healthcare professionals uncover hidden risk sooner.
