This test measures the level of insulin in the blood and can help diagnose diabetes. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas and is essential in transporting glucose (sugar) to the cells. This test is often ordered if someone is experiencing symptoms such as sweating, palpitations, dizziness and fainting which are associated with low glucose levels; and for those diagnosed with diabetes, to monitor insulin production.
