Insulin is a hormone that is produced by the beta cells of the pancreas. Insulin plays an important role in energy metabolism. The factors leading to low secretion or absence of insulin cause the condition known as Diabetes. If a person who is suffering from a condition where there is low or no secretion of insulin eat the meat of the animals, the animal insulin enters the bloodstream. The body then starts to secrete antibodies to fight this foreign insulin. These antibodies have the potential to cause insulin resistance or even allergies. The Anti-Insulin Antibody test is therefore done to help detect the presence of these antibodies in the blood.
