What Is IGF-1?
IGF-1 is a hormone that regulates the effects of GH. It also helps the body use glucose for energy, similar to the way that insulin does. It is vital for DNA synthesis, wound repair, and healthy skin regeneration. Your liver synthesizes about 80% of IGF-1 and your bones produce about 20%.1 GH stimulates the production of IGF-1. The body creates IGF-1 throughout life but production slows greatly during the aging process. IGF-1 belongs to a class of proteins called somatomedins. Somatomedins are intermediaries in chemical reactions, which means they are formed from reactions and then react to give direction for another step in chemical processes.
What Are Normal IGF-1 Levels?
Optimum IGF-1 levels are based on a many factors including age, gender, the presence of underlying medical issues, risk factors for chronic diseases and health goals.
Your lab test results will provide reference ranges based on age and gender.
