Plasma proinsulin, C-peptide and insulin in diagnostic suppression tests for insulinomas

Abstract

The value of plasma insulin, human C-peptide and proinsulin estimation in the diagnosis of 15 insulinomas has been investigated. Measurement of plasma proinsulin in an overnight fasting sample diagnosed all the insulinomas studied, irrespective of the plasma glucose. Patients with insulinomas had plasma proinsulin in the range 0.04–4.2 pmol/l and normal… (More)
