    As I'm dealing with my first significant stall while on this LCHF way of eating, I'm curious to know what foods might be stimulating insulin in my body. From reading Jason Fung's blog, I understand that carbohydrate intake is only part of the picture and that other foods might be insulinogenic independent from their carbohydrate content.
    So I'm interested in conducting some n=1 experiments on myself to test the foods I commonly eat to see what their impacts are on insulin in my body. I know I can use a standard blood glucose meter to measure my blood sugar changes after eating food. But I'm interested in capturing the non-glucose stimulation of insulin. Is there a home-kit for directly measuring insulin in my blood? Or could such a measurement be done in a "home chemistry lab"?
    Or in a worst case, could I draw my own blood samples and have them sent to a lab somewhere?
    Or would it be feasible to partner with a student at a local university to conduct these experiments?

    Insulin has a very short half life in the blood and requires specialized equipment for measuring. You can't really do it at home.
