Serum C peptide level and renal function in diabetes mellitus C peptide is an active peptide hormone with potentially important physiological effects. C peptide has the capacity to diminish glomerular hyperfiltration and reduce urinary albumin excretion in both experimental and human type 1 diabetes. The present study is aimed at correlating the serum C peptide… Read More Serum C peptide level and renal function in diabetes mellitus

Thomas Connors Sep 1, 2000 Normal C-peptide levels for a fasting test are generally considered to be anything between 0.5 nanograms (ng) per millileter (ml) and 3 ng/ml, although people who do not have diabetes may occasionally stray out of this range. The following is a range of C-peptide values in people without diabetes, as… Read More Interpreting Your C-peptide Values

What is C-peptide? In healthy individuals Pancreatic beta-cells produce proinsulin Proinsulin split into C-peptide and insulin C-peptide and insulin are released into circulation In Type 1 diabetes patients Pancreatic beta-cells cease to function No proinsulin is produced Neither insulin nor C-peptide are formed Patients are treated with replacement insulin, but does not receive C-peptide. Long-term… Read More Physiological background. What is C-peptide?
