ABSTRACT
The article focuses on available tests used for screening insulin resistance including fasting glucose, oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and hemoglobin A1c (glycosylated or glycated hemoglobin), or fructosamine. Other tests cited include fasting insulin measurement and glucose tolerance/insulin response (GTIR). It mentions Kraft's identification of 5 patterns of insulin response, the GTIR pattern progression and a case study which proves the value of GTIR for early detection and treatment.
