quantitative insulin sensitivity check index 
A calculated measurement to estimate the effect of insulin on net glucose disposal (insulin sensitivity) in an organism, calculated as 1/(log[fasting plasma insulin in uU/mL] + log[fasting blood glucose in mg/dL]), i.e., the inverse of the logarithm of the product of fasting plasma insulin level and fasting blood glucose level. The insulin and glucose levels may also be measured in any combination of blood, plasma, and serum.
serum insulin level times blood glucose level
