Insulin as a predictor of diabetes type 2: a new medical hypothesis

PDF Full Text


Since the discovery of diabetes, it is about insulin production, or function. In this study, we may introduce a controversial concept. Insulin as a predictor of diabetes, in other words, insulin can cause diabetes type 2. We think that this could serve as a new medical hypothesis. To examine this hypothesis, we analyzed dataset posted in Kaggle from India. The dataset included 763 female patients of whom 497 had no diabetes, and 266 with type 2 diabetes. We used routine statistical analysis and neural network analysis. The results showed that insulin level increases as the diabetes is progressed, and its relative contribution to diabetes was estimated as 28.4%. Taken together, insulin measurement is recommended to be considered in the management of diabetes.
