See the diabetes Dr.: If c-peptide is far below the normal fasting range given by the lab, your pancreas' beta cells (they make insulin) are likely dead or dying. If you are young or very recently diagnosed with diabetes, a very low c-peptide result is a good way of confirming type 1 (autoimmune) rather than type 2 diabetes. But, after many years of type 2 the beta cells can die off and one can also have low c-peptide. ...Read more
