Hello everybody,

In my research ,I used the Homeostastic Model Assessment (HOMA) to calculate the Insulin Sensitivity/Resistance and beta cell function.And I used the original equation in calculation , but when I used the computer model (HOMA calculator) I got different results !

for example:

for glucose= 75 mg/dl and Insulin= 4.24 microIU/L


BY ORIGINAL equation , HOMA beta =16.85   and HOMA IR =0.79


But by HOMA calculator, HOMA beta =92.4   and HOMA IR =0.53


 If anyone have an explanation for this ,or used the HOMA  in his/her research I will be grateful 



Best regards
