Last Updated: August 20 2022

Glycemic control refers to a person's average blood sugar levels. HbA1c is the most widely used marker to monitor glycemic control. A continuous glucose monitor or fingersticks are also commonly used to help monitor and improve glycemic control.

Summary

Insulin Sensitivity is a function of how well your body can handle glucose (blood sugar) through insulin secretion. Insulin is secreted from an organ called the pancreas in response to elevating blood sugar, and the less insulin that is needed to get the job done is how sensitive you are to insulin.
