What is IGFBP-3 test?

Query results C, commonly known as insulin-like growth factor-1 or IGF-1, is mostly transported in the body by insulin-like growth factor binding protein 3 (IGFBP-3). Human growth hormone (hGH), a hormone generated by the pituitary gland, a pea-sized brain gland that collaborates with the endocrine system, regulates the blood levels of both of these proteins. The pituitary gland controls other glands' growth and activity.

IGFBP-3 is not merely a transporter, though. Additionally, it aids in controlling the effects of somatomedin C on bodily tissues and prolonging its half-life in the circulation.

IGFBP-3 levels are at their peak during childhood and puberty, and then they start to decline as people age. Sexual development and dietary state may also have an impact on levels.

Why it is done?

The primary purpose of the IGFBP-3 test is to determine whether a patient is producing a normal level of human growth hormone. In this manner, the pituitary gland and anomalies in growth hormone production are examined with the IGFBP-3 test.

An IGFBP-3 test may be necessary for conditions like dwarfism or gigantism. The test may also be used to track the progress of growth problem treatments.

What is the procedure for IGFBP-3 test?

After applying antiseptic to the skin's surface and wrapping an elastic band (tourniquet) around the upper arm to exert pressure and stimulate the veins to expand with blood, a medical expert will typically extract blood from a vein. Blood is taken out and collected in a vial or syringe by inserting a needle into a vein (often on the back of the hand or inside the elbow of the arm).

The elastic band is taken off once the treatment is finished. After the blood has been drawn, the needle is taken out, and the wound is bandaged or wrapped with cotton to stop the bleeding. It will not take long to draw blood for this test.

How does one prepare for the test? 

Wearing a T-shirt or short-sleeved shirt can make things simpler for both your child and the technician who will be drawing the blood on the day of the test.
