The level of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I) is influenced by many factors but, as detailed here, IGF-I measurements are useful to screen for growth hormone deficiencies in children and young adults. IGF-I levels are an excellent diagnostic test for acromegaly but are also useful to assess disease severity and the response to treatment.AbstractPlasma insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I) concentrations are regulated by genetic factors, nutrient intake, growth hormone (GH) and other hormones… CONTINUE READING
