Fasting Glucose, Insulin and Tg/HDL Ration

Research supports the use of fasting glucose, insulin and the Tg/HDL ratio to help identify individuals whose insulin resistance puts them at increased risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Awareness of your numbers can prompt life-changing modifications to diet and exercise habits.
