Thanks for writing to HCM
R.I.S.C (Relationship between Insulin Sensitivity and Cardiovascular disease)test helps to determine how much risk patients are at for being diabetic and if patients are diabetic,it helps in measuring various risks associated with the disease.
The primary objective of R.I.S.C is to establish whether insulin resistance predicts the deterioration of CVD(cardiovascular disease) risk markers,diabetes,obesity, atherosclerosis,dyslipidaemia and clinical CVD.
Secondary objectives are:1) to analyse genetic and environmental contributions to insulin resistance and CVD and 2) to develop and validate a method for the assessment of insulin sensitivity based on the oral glucose tolerance test.
It measures various vital health indicators that would indicate the level of insulin resistance and extent of development of cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus.Overall it is a good test to know health status and disease progression of diabetes mellitus.
Based on the test results obtained,expert doctors and dietitians will assist patients in managing diabetes.
