One of the things I’ve discussed with my BodyLogic M. D. Doc is my fairly low level of IGF-1. This came up in discussing quality-of-life issues. I’ve had a problem with hand pain for more than 20 years. About five years ago, it progressed to my wrists. I had x-rays, a carpal tunnel exam, and various blood tests. The good news is I don’t have arthritis and I don’t have carpal tunnel. The bad news is, I don’t know what I have!
My IGF-1 is 133 on a range from 86-220. the doc has me trying some product called O-Tropin. You spray it under your tongue mornings and evenings. It has various amino acids and herbs in it. At $80 for a month’s supply, I sure hope this stuff isn’t snake oil.
Anybody know anything about this product? Anybody know anything about low IGF-1 and how it might relate to my hand pain?
