Insulin is a hormone formed by the beta cells in the pancreas. Insulin helps in the absorption of glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body.
In these cells, glucose is utilised for the generation of energy, which is used by the body. In healthy individuals, insulin generation is high when the glucose amounts in the blood are high, and insulin formation is low when the glucose levels in the blood are low.
Insulin controls blood glucose levels and avoids hypoglycemia (low glucose levels) as well as hyperglycemia (high glucose levels).
An Insulin Fasting Lab test is performed to assess insulin generation by the beta cells in the pancreas. It is also done to help decide the reason for low blood glucose, which is an infection known as Hypoglycemia. It is also practised to help analyse the presence of an insulin-creating tumour in the pancreas called Insulinoma which in reality causes Hypoglycemia, and also to recognise the insulin obstruction or to help decide when a type II diabetic may need to begin taking insulin to supplement oral medications.
It is recommended to take the insulin fasting test when you have low blood glucose levels with symptoms, for example, sweating, palpitations, dizziness, fainting; when you have diabetes and your insulin generation should be observed, or once in a while when it is suspected that you have insulin obstruction.
Indications of low blood glucose include:
