Insulin resistance plays a major role in the pathophysiology of diabetes and is associated with obesity and cardiovascular disease. Excellent methods exist for the assessment of insulin sensitivity in the laboratory setting, such as the glucose clamp. However, these methods are not suitable for large population studies, and, thus, surrogate estimates of insulin sensitivity based on measurements in a single blood sample have been developed. Recently an index based on the logarithm and the… CONTINUE READING
