IRS would have to be diagnosed by your sister's pediatric specialist.  There are more factors to consider than just these two lab results in order for a diagnosis of IRS to be made.

Some info:

The insulin resistance syndrome (IRS),1 also known as the metabolic syndrome, is characterized by the clustering of some or all of the following anomalies: hyperinsulinemia, impaired glucose metabolism, dyslipidemia, abnormalities in fibrinolysis and coagulation, overweight, and hypertension
