C-Peptide 24 Hour Urine Test

The C-Peptide 24 Hr Urine Test measures the amount of C-Peptide in the urine collected over a 24-hour period. Similar to the C-Peptide blood test, this test is used to evaluate insulin production by the pancreas. However, instead of a snapshot of the C-Peptide level at a specific time, the 24-hour urine test provides an average level over an extended period. This is useful for assessing how the pancreas is functioning throughout the day and night, and for diagnosing and managing diabetes and other conditions that affect insulin production.

  • Test Name C-Peptide 24 Hour Urine Test
  • Sample Type Urine
