Abstract

Introduction: Insulin resistance or insulin resistance (IR) is defined by the reduction in the processes of insulin uptake, to stimulate the use of glucose in different tissues and to eliminate the production and output of hepatic glucose. On the other hand, currently there are different standard methods to evaluate IR, but these types of methods are highly expensive and their processing requires time.
Objective: The objective of the literature review was to analyze the triglyceride/HDL cholesterol ratio and the role of the laboratory as an indicator of insulin resistance.
Methods: To carry out the bibliographic review article, a documentary exploration method was used through a search for information in databases of journals such as Google Scholar, Pubmed, Scopus, Elsevier, SciELO and Medline.
Results: The articles analyzed provide relevant information on the TG/HDL-C ratio and the importance of the laboratory as an indicator to predict and evaluate insulin resistance. Relevant information was also found on dyslipidemias and the different methods used for evaluation of the IR.
Conclusion: The triglycerides/HDL-C ratio is of utmost importance in the early diagnosis of insulin resistance, since in the studies reviewed a high value of this ratio is consistent with IR.
