The IGF-I Somatomedin-C Test is a diagnostic procedure aimed at measuring the level of Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-I) in the blood. IGF-I, also known as Somatomedin-C, plays a crucial role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults. This hormone, which mirrors the level of human growth hormone (HGH) in the body, is essential for monitoring growth disorders, evaluating pituitary function, and managing conditions related to growth hormone excess or deficiency.

At DNA Labs UAE, this test is offered for 940 AED, providing a valuable tool for both clinicians and patients in the diagnosis and management of various health conditions. The testing process involves a simple blood draw, with results offering insight into the patient’s growth hormone activity. DNA Labs UAE ensures accuracy and reliability in the test results, making it a preferred choice for individuals seeking comprehensive evaluations of their growth hormone levels.

Test Details:

IGF stands for Insulin-like Growth Factor. It is a hormone that plays a crucial role in growth and development. IGF is produced in the liver and other tissues in response to stimulation by growth hormone.

I SOMATOMEDIN-C, also known as IGF-1, is a test that measures the levels of IGF-1 in the blood. This test is often used to evaluate growth disorders in children and to assess growth hormone therapy in adults.

The IGF-1 test is also used to diagnose and monitor conditions related to growth hormone deficiency or excess. It can help determine the cause of short stature, delayed puberty, and growth hormone disorders.

The test involves drawing a blood sample from the patient and sending it to a laboratory for analysis. The results are typically reported as a reference range, which compares the patient’s IGF-1 levels to those of a healthy population.

Abnormal IGF-1 levels can indicate various medical conditions. Low levels may suggest growth hormone deficiency, malnutrition, liver disease, or chronic kidney disease. High levels can be seen in acromegaly (excess growth hormone production), gigantism (excess growth hormone production in children), or certain tumors.

The IGF-1 test is a valuable tool in assessing growth and development disorders and monitoring the effectiveness of growth hormone therapy. It is usually performed in conjunction with other tests, such as growth hormone stimulation tests, to provide a comprehensive evaluation.
