Question: I recently asked my family doc to run IGF-1 and IGF-BP3 on me just to get a baseline in case I wanted to increase my GH though the use of GHRP or secretropin. When I recieved my results today my IGF-1 was high at 234 with a range of 81-225 ng/mL and my IGF-BP3 was low at 2.7 with a range of 3.4 to 6.9 mg/L. Does nayone have an opinion on these results? I thought they should track together. History is below.
