A fasting glucose level of 125 mg/dL may indicate impaired glucose tolerance or pre-diabetes. HOMA (Homeostatic Model Assessment) is a method used to assess insulin resistance and beta-cell function. A HOMA score of less than 2 indicates normal insulin sensitivity, while a score greater than 2 suggests insulin resistance. Your HOMA score of 0.98 indicates normal insulin sensitivity.
