Interpretive Data
This test reacts on a nearly equimolar basis with the analogs insulin aspart, insulin glargine, and insulin lispro. Insulin detemir exhibits approximately 50 percent cross-reactivity. Test reactivity with insulin glulisine is negligible (<3 percent). To convert to pmol/L, multiply µIU/mL by 6.0. The reference interval for fasting insulin is 3-19 µIU/mL
