C-Peptide Blood Test

C-Peptide Blood Test takes the measurement of C-Peptide levels in the blood. C-Peptide is what you get as byproduct after insulin has been created by the pancreas. Insulin is transporter of glucose (sugar) to cells in the body.

As blood sugar increase, insulin production also increase.

A measurement of the C-Peptide levels in the blood is indicative of insulin quantity the body is producing at that given time. As C-Peptide levels correspond to insulin production, it can be a useful measurement for diabetic patients who take insulin medication.

Since Type 2 diabetics often develops antibodies to insulin which makes measurement of insulin levels difficult, C-Peptide is a more accurate way to take measurement of insulin production.

C-Peptide is advised when a person has recently being diagnosed of diabetes or to monitor diabetes treatment. C-Peptide test is also recommended when a person has never-ending symptoms of low sugar or excess insulin production.
