Re: Understanding Bonnie's insulin results


Dear experts. I'm still confused by Bonnie's IR results and was wondering if somebody could confirm whether she is or is not IR.

Her lab results were as follows:-

Glucose 4.7 mmol/L
Insulin <2.0 mU/L (2.0 - 30.0)

The IR calculator results are as follows:-

G:I ratio = 2.35
RISQI = 0.71
MIRG = -4.30
IR Status = Normal, not IR

The reason I am confused is because the "G:I ratio" is less than 4.5 which, according to the calculator, means she is severely IR but the "IR Status" says she is "Normal, not IR". I'm so confused!!
