Urine C-peptide Creatinine Ratio

Interpretation of Urine C-peptide Creatinine ratio General points UCPCR is mainly to be used in patients on insulin treatment to assess endogenous insulin secretion. Its role in patients not on insulin treatment is limited. If the result of UCPCR is out of keeping with other clinical finding then we would recommend repeating the test especially if it is unexpectedly low. Patients tipping out boric acid preservative from urine collection tube, in a sample taking more than 3 days to reach the laboratory can result in artificially low results (McDonald 2009). We are not aware of any reason for a falsely high value. Most of the studies have been performed in patients with normal renal function (eGFR >60 mL/min/1.73 m2) but it has been validated in patients with Type 2 diabetes with moderate renal impairment (eGFR 30-60 mL/min/1.73 m2 (Bowman 2011). The test is unlikely to be appropriate in patients with severe renal impairment. What values are expected in the different subtypes? The urinary C-peptide creatinine ratio (UCPCR) result is best measured on a post prandial sample taken approximately two hours after a meal stimulus. The interpretation depends on the specific clinical scenario Continue reading >>

    I want to get rid of Type 2 Diabetes

    A1c came back a 7.0 and I am not sure why I was walking almost every day and eating good size meals everyday so it shouldn't be that high. I do love 3 bagels with creamcheese though maybe that's what is causing it.

    Welcome to DD.
    Has your doctor prescribed any medicine or insulin for you? 7 is a very definitely diabetic HbA1c number and would usually result in medication and/or insulin and a prescription for a meter and strips for testing.
    Even one bagel would put my blood glucose up high because of the carbs in it.

    Even one bagel would put my blood glucose up high because of the carbs in it. He wanted me to take a shot that starts with a V. ( Its not insulin ) but i told them that i don't want to stick myself with a needle then they said go see a dietian if you can't do the shots. I think i can monitor the meals on my own as i change my diet before to more healthly food i eat blackbean burgers instead of beef burgers and i am trying to switch my bread to healther bread but it looks like bread is out now. So i told them i can do it on my own.

  • Insulin To Carb Ratio Chart

    Every person responds differently to insulin. This means that any two people with diabetes can have quite different carb-to-insulin ratios. For some adults, one unit of fast-acting insulin can usually cover 15 grams of carbohydrate. However, for a very young child, as little as 1/10 unit of fast-acting insulin might cover 15 grams of carbohydrate. Healthcare professionals typically estimate a starting carb-to-insulin ratio for a person. Then they ...

    Insulin-to-carbohydrate (I:C) ratios, which are used to calculate the insulin doses people with diabetes need for specific amounts of food containing carbohydrate, are an important part of any intensive diabetes management program. An I:C ratio tells you how many units of insulin you need to take to “cover” a specified number of carbohydrate grams—for example, if your ratio is 1:12, you’ll need 1 unit of insulin for every 12 grams of carb ...
