In summary, ISF-402 peptide is non-toxic and works in two ways to lower blood glucose:
* by making the body more sensitive to insulin by activating glycogen synthase, the enzyme that coverts blood sugar to glycogen, and
* by delaying the breakdown of insulin itself thereby prolonging its blood sugar lowering effects.

You can substitute "Hyperinsulinemia" for "Type 2 diabetes."
Fasting plasma insulin and glucagon were lower with DHEA.....
suggesting that DHEA replacement could have a potential impact in preventing type 2 diabetes.
Both pioglitazone and rosiglitazone... significantly decreased the lesion size (by 57 to 68%, p < 0.05), motor neuron loss (by 3- to 10-fold, p < 0.05), myelin loss (by 66 to 75%, p < 0.05), astrogliosis (by 46 to 61%, p < 0.05), and microglial activation (by 59 to 78%, p < 0.05) after SCI.
The handling of this test is very important. The specimen should be kept frozen and the test completed within 24 hours of the blood draw. Be sure that the test is performed by a national reference laboratory, such as Smith-Kline, Roche Biomedical, or Nichols, or by a research laboratory accustomed to doing this test. Results can vary widely -- even from the same specimen -- if it's not handled properly. Remember that even though most laboratories will set values of over 25 to 30 as abnormally high, the "normal" samples include many people with insulin resistance who have not yet developed diabetes. General clinical evaluation of insulin levels as a marker for disease is still in its infancy. In our clinic, as in many research settings, we use the fasting insulin normal values of healthy young people as the standard against which we should measure ourselves. If your insulin reading is over 10 mU/ml you can consider yourself to have developed some degree of insulin resistance. The more over 10 your reading, the greater your disturbance. With 10 as the upper end of normal, a reading of 25 would mean that it's taking 2 1/2 times the normal amount of insulin to control blood sugar at its current level. A reading of 48 would mean it's taking over 4 1/2 times more insulin to keep blood sugar at its current level. If your insulin reading is high, repeat the test at eight weeks and at eight-week intervals thereafter during your intervention regimen until normal.
