Verhoogde vastende insulien vlak
My ginie het onlangs 'n bloedtoets laat aanvrae. Die toets was die volgende:

Vastende insulien teenoor vastende glukose vlakke

Die uitslag is die volgende: Glukose 4.3 Insulien 27.6 en glukose/insulien indeks 0.3

Ek moet in die volgende week hom gaan sien, maar sal graag voorbereid wil wees. Wat beteken hierdie verhoogde insulien, en wat hou dit vir my as persoon in. Hy het kortliks verduidelik, hoekom hy die toets wil doen, maar nie wat dit sal beteken as dit wel die geval sal wees nie.Ek is 26 jaar oud.

I don't know the normal values for your laboratory, but if the insulin was abnormal, it means that you have insulin resistance, a type of diabetic state. Presumably the test was done because you are overweight or because there was a suspicion of PCOS. Insulin resistance is often associated with PCOS. It may mean that you need to take medication for this.
