About Insulin Like Growth Factor (IGF 1) Test Test

Why Is Insulin Like Growth Factor (IGF 1) Test Done?

As we have already mentioned, IGF 1 controls the secretion and levels of GHs in our body. These hormones are as important to adults as to children. Let us see some of the diseases related to Growth Hormone imbalance.

  • GH Deficiency: This ailment predominantly attacks children. Low secretion of GHs leads to GH deficiency. As a consequence, children suffering from GH deficiency grow slow, and in the acute case, it may lead to dwarfism. Apart from that, children who suffer from deficit GH have low bone density and poor muscle mass.
  • Gigantism: Gigantism is the exact opposite of dwarfism. In this case, GHs are secreted in more than the required amount, causing abnormal growth. Typically, children suffering from gigantism have disproportionate hands and limbs.
  • Acromegaly: Acromegaly can be considered gigantism in adults. Usually, adults with acromegaly syndrome have large and disproportionate hands and legs. Their facial features and bones also get protruded.

IGF 1 test ascertains the level of GH in our body, and as a result, we can avoid any unnecessary consequences of GH imbalance through early treatment.
Other than that, IGF 1 test is done to mitigate certain symptoms. These are:

  • Slow rate of growth
  • Extremely underweight children
  • Small penis in case of male children
  • Bone density disorder

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
