IGF-1 Testing

Does anyone know a way to temporarily mask or lower an IGF-1 level blood test? (i.e… My levels are already low… but not low enough to have ins. pay for somatropin or the likes)…

My current number is 111 (normal range at this lab was said to be (109-284)…

I am currently using prescribed Tev-tropin at 2iu 6 days on 1 day off. I am only testing at 122 while on.

thanks in advance,

jet…

PS… I realize reducing my caloric and protein intake may lower these levels, but how long after a GH injection should I wait?
