More about Insulin Fasting Cmia Serum Test?

Insulin is a hormone produced and stored within the beta cells of the pancreas. It helps in regulating blood glucose levels by transportation and storage of glucose, the body's main source of energy. Insulin helps transport glucose from the blood to within cells, so that more glucose in the blood is utilised and taken inside the cells.

The test result for PT depends on technique used; results are measured in seconds.
Most laboratories report PT results that are adjusted to the International Normalised Ratio (INR). Patients on anticoagulant drugs usually have a target INR 2 .0 to 3.0 (i.e. a prothrombin time 2 to 3 times as long as in a normal patient, using standardised conditions). For some patients who have a high risk of clot formation, the INR must be higher: about 3.0 to 4.0.
