BACKGROUND Few previous studies have examined the validity of the fasting glucose-to-insulin ratio (FGIR), homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and quantitative insulin-sensitivity check index (QUICKI) in pediatric populations. OBJECTIVE To compare simple indices of insulin resistance calculated from fasting glucose and insulin levels with insulin sensitivity indices (area under the response curve [AUCinsulin], insulin sensitivity index [ISI-compositeL) determined by… CONTINUE READING
