Diabetes

Diabetes a lifelong disorder when the body is unable to properly use carbohydrates, fats and proteins from foods. This leads to high levels of glucose being present in the blood. Please view our complete list of diabetes ELISA kits.

Diabetes mellitus is a lifelong common disorder where the body is unable to properly use carbohydrates, fats and proteins from foods. Diabetes causes high levels of glucose to be present in the blood and this is caused by a problem with the hormone called insulin that is produced by the pancreas. Insulin is responsible for transporting glucose from your bloodstream into the cells of your body for energy. If the body is not producing enough insulin or becomes resistant to insulin, then glucose stays in the bloodstream and is unable to enter cells to give them enough energy to work properly. This can lead to cell starvation and the presence of high blood sugar levels, this causes the body to work harder – which could lead to sever damage to organs and systems. Also, high levels of glucose in the blood can result in damaging the walls of arteries and make them more likely to develop fatty deposits (called atheroma).

There are two main types of diabetes: type 1, where the pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin and type 2, where the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin or the body’s cells don’t react to insulin.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
