What can I learn from this test?

This test measures the level of C-peptide in a sample of your blood or urine (pee). Measuring C-peptide is an accurate way to find out how much insulin your body is making. Insulin is a hormone that your pancreas makes. It helps blood glucose (blood sugar) get into your cells, where it can be used for energy. This helps keep your blood glucose at healthy levels.

What can I test?

C Peptide

C-peptide is a byproduct the pancreas releases into the body when it makes insulin. The pancreas produces about the same amount of insulin and C-peptide. In people with Type 1 diabetes, the pancreas isn’t able to make insulin. They need insulin injections so the body can use glucose. People with Type 2 diabetes make insulin, but their bodies either don’t produce enough insulin or resist the effects of insulin. Some people with Type 2 diabetes need medications to help their bodies use glucose. Over time, some people with type 2 diabetes are no longer able to make insulin.
