Triglycerides and glucose index as an insulin resistance marker in a sample of healthy adults
ConclusionsWe found that elevated TGI was associated with both IR markers in a sample of euthyroid adults without T2DM and with a normal BMI. The simplicity of the TGI calculation makes it the first-choice alternative when the hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp or HOMA-IR are not available.
