Re: Insulin response to eating

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

No, there's no formula like that. What researchers have done is try to establish a ceiling for the one hour or 1.5 hour insulin.  The most commonly proposed upper limit is 60 uIU/mL but some have used as high as 100 and on the lower end a ceiling of 45 uIU has been proposed. To put this in perspective, if you look at studies using normal horses the response can be as low as 20 uIU/mL.

If correct upper limits for baseline, fed low S/S or fasted, are used, there's no need for those "challenge" tests.

As an aside, I don't use the term ID .
