At healthcare nt sickcare, we understand the importance of early detection and accurate diagnosis of medical conditions. Our C-Peptide Test is an essential tool for evaluating insulin production by the pancreas. The pancreas produces insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels in the body. Insufficient insulin production can lead to diabetes, while excessive insulin production can lead to hypoglycaemia. Our C-Peptide Test measures the levels of C-peptide, a substance that is released along with insulin by the pancreas, in the blood. C-peptide levels can be used to determine if insulin is being produced naturally by the body or if insulin injections are needed to manage diabetes.

To whom C-Peptide test advised?

This test is especially useful for individuals who have been recently diagnosed with diabetes or those who are experiencing uncontrolled blood sugar levels despite insulin therapy. Our experienced medical professionals perform this test in our state-of-the-art laboratories, ensuring accurate and reliable results.

How to prepare for C-Peptide test?

To prepare for the C-Peptide Test, patients are advised to fast for at least eight hours before the test. A blood sample is taken and sent to our laboratory for analysis. Our team of medical professionals uses the latest technologies and techniques to perform the test, and results are usually available within 24–48 hours.

What the reason for the abnormal c-peptide test level?

There are a few potential reasons for abnormal C-peptide test levels:

Diabetes

  • Low C-peptide levels can indicate type 1 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas produces little to no insulin due to destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells. Since C-peptide is released alongside insulin, C-peptide levels are also low.
  • High levels may be seen in some cases of type 2 diabetes as the body tries to overproduce insulin to compensate for insulin resistance. Over time, C-peptide levels fall in type 2 diabetes as beta cell function declines.

Pancreatic Problems

  • Diseases of the pancreas like pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, haemochromatosis, pancreatic cancer, or pancreas removal can lead to abnormal C-peptide levels since these conditions damage insulin/C-peptide-producing cells.

Insulin Medications

  • Patients taking exogenous insulin therapy will have low natural C-peptide since their insulin is getting supplied from an outside source. Measuring C-peptide can help distinguish endogenous vs exogenous insulin production.

Obesity/Metabolic Syndrome

  • Obese patients and those with prediabetes/metabolic syndrome often have chronically high C-peptide levels because their body overproduces insulin to compensate for underlying insulin resistance.

In summary, abnormal C-peptide levels imply dysfunctional insulin production and require further medical investigation to diagnose the underlying condition. Evaluating it together with glucose and insulin tests gives the full picture.
