Homeostasis Model Assessment (HOMA), Beta Cell Function and Insulin Resistance

Purpose:

To use the homeostasis model assessment (HOMA) to evaluate a patient's beta-cell function and insulin resistance.

Specialty:

Endocrinology, Nutrition & Dermatology
Clinical Laboratory

Objective:

laboratory tests

ICD-10:

R73.9, E14.6

Description:

Matthews et al used the Homeostasis Model Assessment (HOMA) to predict the homeostatic concentrations of fasting insulin and glucose which arise from varying degrees of beta-cell deficiency and insulin resistance. The model is nonlinear but can be approximated by simple mathematical approximations.
