Proinsulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps regulate blood sugar levels in the body. The proinsulin test measures the amount of proinsulin present in the bloodstream. High levels of proinsulin can indicate insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes.
High levels of proinsulin can lead to some of the following symptoms:
- Increased thirst and hunger
- Frequent urination
- Blurred vision
- Slow-healing sores
The sample collection takes just a few minutes and requires no special preparation apart from fasting for at least 8 hours before the test. For this test, a sample of blood is collected from the patient's vein using a needle. The collected blood sample is sent to the laboratory where it undergoes analysis. The results are generally available within 24 hours after sample collection.
A positive result on the Pro Insulin panel may suggest an early stage of Type II Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). It is important to consult with your healthcare provider if you receive a positive diagnosis.
Treatment options include lifestyle changes such as exercising regularly, eating healthy foods, losing weight if necessary, and taking medication prescribed by your doctor.
Early detection and treatment can help prevent complications associated with T2DM like heart disease, nerve damage, kidney failure, and blindness. By detecting high levels of proinsulin through regular screening tests, individuals can take steps to reduce their risk factors and maintain good health.
