C-Peptide is usually measured to provide answers to two different questions that deal with what type of diabetes a person has, such as diabetes type 1 or diabetes type 2, and in the event of a diabetes diagnosis to be able to make a decision about what type of diabetes treatment to example to start insulin or not .
C-Peptide should be used as a blood test that can help answer the above questions and should not be measured separately but together with glucose.
This is how it works: The test is a blood test that is carried out at the selected sampling unit.
Sample response: You normally have a response within 6 banking days after taking the sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test results, you will receive a report in Swedish about your values and the doctor's comment.
To think about: The blood sample should be taken as early as possible in the day, before 10:00 at the latest.
Remember: Bring valid identification with you when taking the sample.
C-Peptide is measured to help classify diabetes and choose which treatment may help. In diabetes type 1, C-Peptide levels are low and in diabetes type 2, C-Peptide levels are elevated.
The result from C-Peptide should be interpreted together with a simultaneously taken P-Glucose.
