Clinical Lipidology
In brief: Sevaral Choices
Insulin resistance (ir) is a progressive deterioration of glucose and lipoprotein metabolism. Abnormal lipoprotein, Insulin and glucose levels are seen over time.
A combination of increased large vldl and small LDL particle numbers, and decreased large HDL particle number occurs very early in ir and can predate high glucose by a decade. Rising Insulin levels overlap lipoprotein particle changes.

In brief: Glucose tolerance
Test.
Timed measurement of blood glucose, following a three day preparation, overnight fast and administration of a fixed amount of glucose allows determination of response to Insulin in a non-diabetic patient. It can also be used to diagnose diabetes.
