Why it is Done

  • When you have diabetes and your health practitioner wants to determine if you are producing enough of your own insulin.
  • When it is time to supplement oral medication with insulin injections or an insulin pump.
  • When your health practitioner suspects that you are insulin resistant.
  • When you have documented hypoglycemia.

What is this test

C-Peptide helps evaluate insulin production by the beta cells in the pancreas or to help determine the cause of low blood glucose (hypoglycemia).
