Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 Blood Test

$87.00 $58.00
Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1, or Somatomedin C), a protein involved in stimulating somatic growth, is regulated principally by Growth Hormone (GH) and nutritional intake. IGF-1 is transported in serum by several proteins; this helps maintain relatively high IGF-1 plasma levels and minimizes fluctuations in serum IGF-1 concentrations.
