C-Peptide Blood Test

$64.00$107.00

* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.

Description

Use:

The principal use of C-peptide is in the evaluation of hypoglycemia. Patients with insulin-secreting neoplasms have high levels of both C-peptide and endogenous insulin; in contrast, patients with factitious hypoglycemia will have low C-peptide levels in the presence of elevated (exogenous) serum insulin.

C-peptide is also useful in evaluating residual beta cell function in insulin-dependent diabetics, many of whom have antibodies that interfere with insulin assays.

Recommended For:

Diagnosing pancreatic cancer, diabetes prognosis.

Fasting for 12 hours is a must. Alcohol must be avoided for 24 hours prior to test.
