Re: Fasting Insulin Guidelines

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

The point of the article is that fasting "normal limits" are too high. If you apply their recommendations, her fasting insulins were above normal.

Post meal insulin depends on the composition (sugar and starch) of the meal, and whether it followed an overnight fast. The first meal of the day after an overnight fast will produce a higher insulin response and that last about 4 hours. Otherwise, very low sugar and starch meals produce low insulin responses that peak at 1 to 1.5 hours after eating.
