Pills for Diabetes
Question from San Diego, California, USA:
Is there a strict test to determine the presence of insulin resistance versus the need for an insulin sensitizer?
There is no available test for insulin resistance that is easily performed. Indirect evidence for insulin resistance exists in the body habitus, insulin requirements, ability to control sugars, lipids, and the presence of a variety of phenotypic features.
