Diabetes: quantitative determination of Intact Proinsulin
Diabetes in children and teens...
Over the last 30 years, the number of cases of childhood diabetes has increased threefold.
Type-1 diabetes (diabetes caused by a defect in the immune system which leads to destruction of the insulin-producing cells) is the most common form of diabetes in children and has traditionally been considered as the only type of infant diabetes except in rare instances. In fact, type-1 diabetes is often called "juvenile diabetes".
However, recent findings suggest that somewhere between 8-45% of newly diagnosed children with diabetes may indeed have Type-2 diabetes (insulin deficiency due to other factors).
Measurement of intact proinsulin for the diagnostic of :
- non-insulin dependent diabetes
- insulin dependent diabetes
- renal failure
- patients with benign or malignant ß-cell tumours of the pancreas.
- highest specificity and sensitivity
- detects only the intact proinsulin form; no cross-reaction with insulin and “split” forms
- calibrated against IRR 84/611
- easy handling
- results within 2 hours
