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.
- Validated in a Stanford University study of 535 individuals without diabetes or cardiovascular disease3 against the insulin suppression test, a gold standard method for the direct measurement of insulin resistance
- Provides an enhanced assessment of IR through the combined measurement of insulin and C-peptide from a single fasting blood specimen
- Offers greater discrimination of IR compared to either insulin or C-peptide levels alone and a better assessment of IR status than TG/HDL or HOMA-IR3
- Detects IR and possible risk of prediabetes or diabetes before traditional markers can
