IGF 1-Insulin Like Growth Factor 1

IGF 1-Insulin Like Growth Factor 1


This test analyses the level of IGF-1, a growth hormone marker, in the blood. Growth hormone supports bone and tissue growth.

Males with a small penis, thin hair, and poor nail growth may need this test. Excessive growth and colossal head and hands are some signs of elevated GH levels in children. Adults with high GH levels can have a deep husky voice, more significant than average facial features, excessive perspiration, bone thickening, irregular menstruation cycles, and erectile dysfunction.

GH supplementation is used to treat low GH levels. Higher GH levels in children and adults suggest gigantism and acromegaly, respectively, and pituitary tumors.
