Insulin Resistance Calculator
The acronym HOMA-IR represents the assessment of insulin resistance known as "Homeostatic Model Assessment of Insulin Resistance." The crucial aspect of this acronym is the term "insulin resistance," which indicates the presence and degree of insulin resistance in your body. By analyzing your fasting blood sugar and the hormone insulin's response, HOMA-IR provides valuable insights into your body's dynamics. It is an excellent method for evaluating your insulin resistance status.
Important: The calculator below uses Standard International Units as inputs, and converts the inputs and result to US Units to make interpretation easier.
HOMA-IR index value (U.S. Units)
< 1.9 No insulin resistance
1.9 - 2.9 Mild insulin resistance
3.0 - 4.0 Moderate insulin resistance
> 4.0 Severe insulin resistance
