    Determining a diagnostic algorithm for hyperinsulinaemia
    Catherine A.P. Crofts, Grant Schofield, Mark C. Wheldon, Caryn Zinn, Joseph R. Kraft
    Journal of Insulin Resistance | Vol 4, No 1 | a49 | DOI:

    Background: Ascertaining Kraft dynamic insulin response patterns following a 3-h 100 g oral glucose tolerance test seems to be the most reliable method for diagnosing hyperinsulinaemia. However, this test may be too resource-intensive for standard clinical use.

    Aim: This study aims to see if Kraft patterns can be accurately predicted using fewer blood samples with sensitivity and specificity analyses.

    @bulkbiker At last this has been published I saw it in a YouTube talk she gave some time ago.

    Thanks for that.. although I'm not sure I'd fancy 100g of glucose in one hit.. 75g with the Rapilose was bad enough.
    Interesting though and great to see some newer research into Krafts work.

    She got hold of all Krafts private notes and used modem stats methods on his data for her PhD. Shame no journal leading Journal was willing to publish her paper so few people will see it.

    I will never undertake an OGTT. There’s nothing more certain in my life. Interesting nevertheless, of course, but it’s not something I’m ever going to get involved in. I’ll stick with HOMA-IR, HbA1c and hs-CRP.
