Fasting: Overnight fasting is required.
Overnight fasting is required. High carbohydrate diet for 3 days before test. Patient NPO after midnight; glucose solution 1.75 g/kg body weight (maximum dose 75g) orally administered after collection of the fasting specimen
- Draw fasting specimen. Collect 1 mL serum for each timed specimen post glucose dose. All tubes must be clearly labeled with the time of draw. Submit all tubes with one test requisition.
- Collect and label sample according to standard protocols.
- Gently invert tube 5 times immediately after draw. Do not shake.
- Allow blood to clot 30 minutes.
- Centrifuge for 10-15 minutes.
Transport: Store serum at 2°C to 8°C after collection and ship the same day per packaging instructions included with the provided shipping box.

|Insulin Response to Glucose||Reference Range|
|30 minutes post glucose||6.0-86.0 uIU/mL|
|60 minutes post glucose||8.0-112.0 uIU/mL|
|90 minutes post glucose||5.0-68.0 uIU/mL|
|120 minutes post glucose||5.0-55.0 uIU/mL|
|150 minutes post glucose||3.0-46.0 uIU/mL|
|180 minutes post glucose||3.0-20.0 uIU/mL|
|240 minutes post glucose||<15.0 uIU/mL|

Clinical Significance: The insulin response to glucose infusion is useful in evaluating patients with hypoglycemia and suspected insulin resistance.
