The simplest of these is homeostasis model assessment of [beta]-cell function (HOMA-[beta]),  which relies on a mathematical formula involving fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and insulin (FPI) concentrations (1).
One widely used tool to estimate insulin sensitivity is the homeostasis model assessment (HOMA), calculated using fasting blood glucose and fasting insulin levels.
The degree of insulin resistance was evaluated by the homeostasis model assessment (HOMA)-fasting insulin [mIU/L] × fasting blood glucose [mmol/L/22.
Other than the SSPG, homeostasis model assessment was also used to estimate insulin resistance (HOMA-IR).
Participants showed significant improvements in lipid parameters, including fasting serum cholesterol, triglycerides, cholesterol/HDL ratio, triglyceride/HDL ratio, hemoglobin A1c and insulin, as well as a significant reduction in the Homeostasis Model Assessment (HOMA), which estimates steady-state beta-cell function and insulin function.
Compared with the high-salt diet the low-salt diet resulted in a significant increase in insulin resistance, as determined by the homeostasis model assessment index (mean, 2.
Currently, the homeostasis model assessment (HOMA) model, which correlates well with gold standard clamp techniques, is widely used in clinical and epidemiological research because of its simplicity.
