There is insulin resistance or cardiovascular risk.
The efficient treatment of diabetes mellitus and arteriosclerosis as well as their secondary diseases is one of the greatest medical challenges of our days.
Increased levels of intact proinsulin in the blood in the morning are a highly specific indicator of a massive disorder of the pancreatic insulin-producing cells (ß-cell dysfunction) and clinically relevant insulin resistance. Arteriosclerosis is characterized above all by an accumulation of cholesterol-containing fat deposits (plaques) on the inner walls of the arteries. Early diagnosis can influence the life of patients and partly prevent the outbreak of disease. This is what our IVD products stand for.
