What is the Insulin Random test?
Random insulin tests can be taken at any time during the day. This blood sample will be taken from your arm. If the glucose levels are greater than 200 mg/dl, you are usually considered diabetic. Since the blood glucose levels can vary based on food intake, medication, and exercise intensity, taking another test is recommended to conclude the results.
When is the Insulin Random test recommended?
It is recommended:
To confirm the presence of insulin-secreting tumours like insulinoma.
To confirm resistance to insulin hormone.
To monitor the insulin levels in diabetics taking medicines or receiving insulin injections.
If you have any symptoms of low blood glucose levels like giddiness, sweating, palpitations, confusion, fainting, or dryness of the mouth.
What does it measure?
The Insulin Random test measures:
This test analyses the amount of insulin, the hormone that lets cells take in glucose. This glucose is a sugar that comes from food and is the body's main source of energy. Glucose values in the blood rise after meals and trigger the pancreas to make insulin and release it into the bloodstream.
The Insulin Random tests are useful in measuring blood glucose levels without the need for any fasting.
It is widely used for analysing the amount of blood glucose in type 1 diabetes emergency cases where insulin supplementation is required immediately and also for detecting any tumour in the insulin cells of the pancreas.

You will get the reports within 6 hours after the collection of the blood sample.
