Insulin is used to diagnose an insulin-producing tumor and verify that the removal of the tumor has been successful.  It can also be used to diagnose hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, and can be paired with a C-peptides test to determine levels of insulin being produced in the body, and levels of insulin coming from an outside source such as insulin injections.

Insulin is a hormone that helps move blood sugar, known as glucose, from your bloodstream into your cells. Glucose comes from the foods you eat and drink and is your body’s main source of energy.

Insulin helps to keep glucose in balance. If glucose levels are too high it is called Hyperglycemia. This is when your body doesn’t make enough insulin, so glucose cannot get into your cells. If glucose is too low, it’s called Hypoglycemia. This is when your body sends too much insulin into the blood, which causes too much glucose to get into your cells. Diabetes is the most common cause of abnormal glucose levels. There are two types of diabetes:

Type 1 Diabetes is when your body makes little or no insulin at all. This can cause hyperglycemia.
Type 2 Diabetes means that your body is still able to make insulin, but the cells in your body don’t respond well to insulin and can’t easily take up enough glucose from your blood. This is called insulin resistance.
