This test reveals the amount of insulin that your pancreas requires to make in order to control the blood sugar levels in your body. After taking this test, you need to consult your doctor who will then determine the next course of action that will help in the prevention of you getting diabetes.

The HOMA IR test is calculated from the fasting glucose and fasting insulin levels, so come prepared for the test accordingly! Book your test with one of the best diagnostic labs Agra online or through our mobile app (available at Google Play and Apple Store).

If your HOMA IR score is high, it means that your pancreas produces too much insulin which results in the cells no longer responding to it and that can lead to type 2 diabetes. Being a crucial indicator of insulin resistance, it is important that you get the HOMA IR test done, so book your appointment with the Scientific Pathology Lab today and increase your chances of preventing diabetes.
