R.I.S.C – Report on Insulin Sensitivity and Control Test, is being introduced for the first time in India by Lifespan. The R.I.S.C. test comprehensively investigates 30 vital cardio-metabolic health indicators. The test screens for insulin resistance and impaired glucose tolerance. It determines the optimum functioning of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system and checks for deterioration of muscle and nerve reflexes. Sudomotor test measures the extent of neural response and detects nerve damage (neuropathy). Cardiovascular health is also assessed by determination of ventricular function and hemodynamic analysis.Blood pressure and lipid markers are also assessed as indicators of chronic or symptomatic hypertension.
In conclusion, the R.I.S.C test helps determine if a patient is at risk of developing diabetes and if a patient is diabetic, it helps measure the risk a patient may have for the complications associated with the disease.
The R.I.S.C. test is already being successfully used by clinicians across the US and Europe.
