Homa - IR (Insulin Resistance)

HOMA-IR Test, also known as the Homeostatic Model Assessment Index, is an effective method for measuring insulin resistance and assessing beta-cell function. This mathematical model is useful in clinical research and treatments, particularly in the early detection of conditions like Type 2 Diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and PCOS.

Evaluating homa ir involves calculating the Index, derived from fasting blood glucose and insulin level analysis, where a higher value results in increased insulin resistance.
