Diabetes and obesity assay kits are clinical lab tests used to determine overall health and weight-related diseases, such as diabetes. Diabetes is a condition where the body's regulation of blood glucose is impaired because of lack of insulin. There are two types of diabetes; type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is also known as insulin-dependent diabetes. Whereas, type 2 diabetes is often regarded as non-insulin dependent or maturity onset. Also, obesity or excess weight predisposes type 2 diabetes. When testing a patient's risk for diabetes or other weight-related disorders, some key tests include, but are not limited to, insulin, glucose, HbA1c, C-reactive protein (CRP), ghrelin, cortisol, and leptin.
