I recently saw a post about to get the most accurate results from the c-peptide test , how the night before testing the correct amount of carbs/ and insulin you should take. If anyone knows where I could go to find this article I would appreciate it.

Thanks for replying. I went through the sites you sent and I didn't see what I was looking for. The article I saw said something about if you were taking the c-peptide test you should take less insulin and more carbs to get more accurate results. But I was in a hurry and didn't write down the site and now I can't find it again. I was only 3/4 of a point away of being able to get a pump from medicare. I do appreciate your help.

Thanks for the site, but that wasn't it. It was a good site, but the one I saw was talking about you should not do something with your insulin and then do something else with your carbs. I know that sounds silly, but I can't remember exactly what it said that is why I am trying to find it again. I took the c-peptide test and I was 3/4 of a point over to being able to get the pump. Bummer! That was 6 months ago, don't know when they will test again. Thanks for the help.
