ABSTRACT
The article examines the reliability of reference values provided by the homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and the whole body insulin sensitivity index (WBISI) in determining whether or not a prepubertal Caucasian child is insulin-resistant. It compares the two tests with other tests such as the frequent sampling intravenous glucose tolerance test (FS-IVGTT) and the euglycemic insulin clamp. It elaborates percentile patterns for HOMA-IR and WBISI that are relevant to prepubertal Caucasian children with normal weights.
