A member asked:

My wife insulin level is high, but blood glucose levels are normal, does she have diabetes?

Specializes in Endocrinology

But she is probably Insulin resistant and on the way to diabetes in the future. The exact name you put on it is of no importance, the risk is the same. She needs diet, exercise and weight reduction. By the way, tests for Insulin levels are notoriously inaccurate.
