Healthy Low Blood Insulin Levels

The lower the blood insulin levels are, the better the long-term health, provided the blood glucose levels are in the healthful range.


Unhealthy Low Blood Insulin Levels

Very low blood insulin levels are also seen in people with diabetes Type 2 who run very high blood sugar and insulin levels, waste their insulin reserves, and eventually become insulin-depleted. This occurs because their diabetes is not properly treated.

Very low blood insulin levels are also seen in people with diabetes Type 1 in which the cells that produce insulin in the pancreas gland are destroyed with acute immune toxicity.


In Tables 1 and 2 given below, I present two case studies showing the following two patterns:

  1. Low insulin and healthy blood sugar levels
  2. Low insulin levels with very high diabetic blood sugar levels.
