The following laboratory measures related to metabolic function and glycemia were included in baseline and longitudinal analyses: fasting proinsulin (pM), fasting insulin ([micro]U/mL), 30-min post OGTT insulin ([micro]U/mL), fasting plasma glucose (mg/dL), 30-min post-OGTT glucose (mg/dL), 2-h post-OGTT glucose (mg/dL), % glycated hemoglobin ([HbA.
Nicotinamide is a form of vitamin B3 and it possesses anti-diabetogenic potential by modulating the decline in the proinsulin quantity, thereby partially reversing the inhibition of insulin secretion to prevent the aggravation of experimental diabetes.

Serum insulin concentrations were measured by an automated, electrochemiluminescent immunometric assay (Cobas E411, Roche Diagnostics, Germany) with 8% cross-reactivity with proinsulin and a total analytical imprecision less than 7,5% for values between 55 and 2100 pmol/L (7.

It is produced in an immature form called preproinsulin, which is proteolytically cleaved to obtain proinsulin and then insulin.

In 2004, the University of Oxford launched the HOMA2 Calculator, free software which renders a more precise and fast calculation of HOMA2-IR, determining insulin sensibility and beta-cell function within a range of 1-300 [micro]UI/L for insulin and 20-460 mg/dL for glucose, adjusting this model for hyperinsulinemic or hyperglycemic conditions, hepatic and peripheral IR, and circulating proinsulin [11,13,14].
