How to determine insulin sensitivity?

I hear a lot of talk about insulin resistance and sensitivity but how do you test for it?

Fasting glucose? If my fasting glucose is good, and it is, does that mean for sure that i have good insulin sensitivity?

I have a feeling theres more to it. I've been on a decent dose of hgh for way to long, eat way too many carbs and a good amount ofsugar. I feel like i "should" be somewhat resistant, but after a 12 hour fast my glucose is always between 75-80.

What other tests can be performed? Thanks.

I would also get your insulin level tested fasted in the AM. Your BG can still be normal if your pancreas is kicking out a lot of insulin to compensate.

For reference, range is under 19.6 When I had mine tested last I was pretty lean and it was 3.6

Meadow and Serrano have talked about it in some of the older videos. Don't quote me but I think Serrano says he likes it under 9 or 10.

Do see if you are insulin resistant you need to test:
Fasted blood glucose
Fasted insulin
Hba1c
Triglicerides

This will give you enough information about how you respond to Insulin.

Insulin resistance usually is hard to reach if you workout hard enough and do at least 100min cardio every week.

I never understand why people look for a problem where it is not. Your sugar level is perfect so don't look for a problem

Im not looking for a problem. I just want to know what my insulin sensitivity is so that i can optimize everything that im doing. I just wasnt sure if fasting glucose alone was enough to tell me if i had good insulin sensitivity or not.

Remind me again, what is insulin resistance?

Measure your visceral fat than divide that by total body mass, you want that number low.

Fasting glucose x fasting insulin, divided by 405 = Homa IR (insulin resistance).

Homa IR has very skewed reference ranges. There's a reason for several tests for IR and no one can prove one for better or worse.

What are the other tests or methods? Glucose challenge?
