C-peptide Blood Test
The C-peptide blood test measures the levels of C-peptide in the blood, a protein that is released when the pancreas produces insulin. The test is used to assess insulin production and evaluate pancreatic function in individuals with diabetes. C-peptide levels can help determine whether a person's diabetes is due to insufficient insulin production or insulin resistance.
