I just had my fasting insulin tested along with several other tests. Insulin tested below reference range and I am wondering if that is an area of concern. I know we strive to be insulin sensitive and want a low fasting insulin...but can it be too low? I tried to do a HOMA calc on it and the calculator doesnt go below 2.9 uU/mL hmmm

A fasting insulin done in Jun/2019 was 5.5 ref as below.

F INSULIN    date:01/04/2020
    1.1           Ref 2.0 - 19.6 (uIU/mL)

Vit D, 25 H    date:01/04/2020
    84.4          Ref  >20

Rodney D:

Your fasting insulin looks AOK to me but you may want to back off on Vitamin D somewhat.

If this low fasting insulin is coupled with blood sugars that are low, then this is wonderful. 

It does indeed thereby suggest excellent insulin sensitivity.

Imagine cooking all those SAD foods for the family and then I usually need to put something fast for myself... I don’t mind. I do not desire their food. What I mind is still having BG around 100.  :((

...yes,  this is very restrictive...no wine:) 

Why do you like your insulin to be that low? I thought you’re very skinny. Is it HBP?

It’s good that you’re vigilant. You need to relax with some  wine. Cheers... :)

My focus is to lower insulin resistance as well... but have some fun on the way there.

An insulin level this low coupled with the good blood sugars is a cause for celebration, Rodney. 

This is precisely what you are trying to achieve: magnificent insulin sensitivity.

14 hour water only fast.  Get both fasting insulin and fasting glucose done at same time.  So you can use both to calculate HOMA-IR.
