From Korea – According to research published in the CMAJ, elevated C-peptide levels raises risk of heart disease and death in non-diabetic adults. Researchers studied data on nearly 6,000 adults over the age of 40. They found that those with high serum C-peptide levels were at 1.8-3.2x increased risk of death when compared to those with low C-peptide levels. Risk of death increased with every increase in C-peptide levels.
