The “C-Peptide Stimulation by Glucagon Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at evaluating the insulin production capacity of the pancreas. This test is particularly useful in distinguishing between type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well as in assessing residual beta-cell function in individuals with diabetes. During the test, glucagon is administered to stimulate the pancreas to release insulin and C-peptide, a byproduct of insulin production. Measuring the levels of C-peptide can provide insights into the body’s insulin production, as C-peptide levels tend to mirror insulin levels due to their simultaneous release.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility known for its advanced diagnostic services, the test is priced at 980 AED. DNA Labs UAE is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by experienced professionals, ensuring accurate and reliable test results. This test is particularly important for individuals requiring detailed understanding of their pancreatic function to tailor their diabetes management plan effectively.

Draw additional specimens at 5, 10, and 15 minutes post-Glucagon. Note time drawn on each container label and test request form. 12 hours overnight fasting mandatory. Ship refrigerated or frozen.

Report Delivery: Daily

Method: Chemiluminescent Immunoassay

Test Type: Diabetes

Doctor: Endocrinologist, Physician

Test Department:

Pre Test Information: 12 hours overnight fasting mandatory. Injection Glucagon is not supplied by LPL.

Test Details:

The C-peptide stimulation by glucagon test is a diagnostic test used to evaluate the function of the beta cells in the pancreas. Beta cells are responsible for producing insulin, and C-peptide is a byproduct of insulin production. During the test, the patient is given an injection of glucagon, a hormone that stimulates the release of insulin from the beta cells. Blood samples are then taken at specific time intervals to measure the levels of C-peptide in the blood.

The test is typically performed in individuals with diabetes to determine if they are producing an adequate amount of insulin. If the C-peptide levels increase significantly after the glucagon injection, it indicates that the beta cells are functioning properly and producing insulin.

The C-peptide stimulation by glucagon test can help differentiate between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the beta cells are destroyed and do not produce insulin, resulting in low C-peptide levels. In type 2 diabetes, the beta cells may still be functional, but insulin resistance leads to elevated blood glucose levels.

The test can help determine the underlying cause of diabetes and guide treatment decisions. It is important to note that the C-peptide stimulation by glucagon test should be performed under the supervision of a healthcare professional and is not suitable for all individuals. It may not be appropriate for individuals with certain medical conditions or those taking specific medications.

Additionally, the test results should be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings to make an accurate diagnosis.
