Szilard Voros, MD, tells us how long the new DPMP (Diabetes Prevention & Management Panel) test from Health Diagnostic Laboratory has been available. Most of the work until recently was focused on cardiovascular disease but the team realized that diabetes was so connected that they are now doing tests for both. Over the last couple of years they have been looking at some interesting biomarkers including over 400 metabolites. They have discovered that certain of these biomarkers seem connected with different aspects of diabetes particularly insulin resistance.
