Insulin Like Factor 1

Insulin Like Factor 1

What is the Insulin Like Factor 1 Test?

This test tells you how much IGF-1 (insulin-like factor 1) is in your blood and how much is in your urine. You can think of IGF-1 as a hormone that helps you control how growth hormone (GH) works in your body. Two things help bones and tissues usually grow: IGF-1 and GH work together.

GH levels in the blood change based on what you eat and how active you are during the day. But IGF-1 levels aren't going to go up or down any time soon. You can find out if your body makes enough GH with an IGF-1 test.

Why done? 

Using an IGF-1 test, you can find out if you have growth hormone disorders, like:

A lack of GH. Children need to have enough GH to grow and develop normally. Some children grow more slowly and are shorter than other children their age because they don't have enough GH. A lack of GH can cause low bone density and less muscle mass in adults.

• When your body cannot make enough of the hormone GH, this is also called Laron syndrome. Rarely does the body not know how to use the growth hormone it produces. Children's height and growth rate also slow down because of it.

• Gigantism. When you are a child, your body makes too much growth hormone. This is a rare condition. They are tall for their age and have big hands and feet.

• Acromegaly. This adult disorder causes the body to make too much growth hormone. Adults with acromegaly have thicker bones and more extensive hands, feet, and faces.


You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
