C-peptide is a peptide that is made when proinsulin is split into insulin and C-peptide.
C-peptide is generally found in amounts equal to insulin.
A C-peptide test can be done when diabetes has just been diagnosed and it is not clear whether type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes is present or to help find the cause of low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia), such as excessive use of medicine to treat diabetes or a noncancerous growth (tumor) in the pancreas (insulinoma).

“Just wanted to say what a totally professional set up you have. 3 weeks ago a UTI sample came back negative from whoever my GP uses, although it was really obvious that’s what I had. So I decided to use medichecks to get a test result done privately. Guess what? The test came back positive & I am now being treated for the problem. If it was’nt for medichecks I would still be suffering a very painful UTI. Thank you very much ,I am eternally grateful.
