What Is An Insulin-PP Test?
- Insulin is a hormone synthesised by the beta cells of the pancreas. Insulin It is secreted in response to increased blood glucose following a meal and is vital for the transportation and storage of glucose. The production of insulin is high when the glucose levels in the blood are high, and insulin production is low when glucose levels in the blood are low.
- Insulin helps in regulating blood glucose levels, and also has a role in lipid metabolism.
- Insulin postprandial(Insulin-PP) test checks the amount of insulin in the blood after 2 hours of having food.
