Abstract: Increasing awareness that the clinical states of obesity, hypertension and dyslipidemia, as well as type II diabetes, are frequently associated with insulin resistance raises the question whether and how insulin resistance should be determined in a clinical practice. Both sophisticated and simple methods have been tried. The choice will be important once there is an established, practical way to treat subclinical insulin resistance. It is reasonable to believe that such treatment could defer or prevent progression to clinical diabetes and coronary artery disease in some patients.
