Glucose-insulin ratio
Hi there
I was told I have a borderline low glucose-insullin ratio of 0.5
Can you please explain this to me further? What are the causes and how can I control it?

I am not familliar with this. Please be so kind as to provide me with more information as to what your glucose serum level was, as well as insullin serum level.

Why did you have these tests done? Is it because you suspect diabetes? If so, could you also provide the results of your glucose tolerance test.

Thank you
