I seem to have IGF-1/GH deficiency both are really low. What possible consequences can this have on the body. I know i have a hard time building muscle but what else can it effect?
I have a problem with reduction in my sense of touch and im only 19 and im wondering if it has anything to do with IGF-1.
GH - 0.8 (0 - 15)
IGF-1 - 33.5 (10 - 1000)
Its ridiculous how big this range is for IGF-1 is...
yes bumpity bump bump!
As far as the reduction of your feeling, hgh def. plays a role in nerve expression and growth/health...also on metabolism, lipolysis and a plethora of other uses. Igf plays an important role in healing tissue in the body, regeneration. I would certainly consult a hormone specialist and get on a good HRT protocol that includes hgh at the very least. Did you have your Test levels tested?
Total Testosterone 10.1 (12 - 32)
My T is low, DHEA low, igf-1 low, hypothyroid too. Cortisol and ACTH both elevated.
But i have had a high mercury reading on my hair analysis 2.4 (0.0 - 0.6) and also am suspecting B12 deficiency for the sense of touch thing.
Its possible that the hormone imbalances have finally gotten to a point where they cause real problems in the body.
Im about to see a specialist who will look at all my problems as a whole mercury levels, hormones, nutritional evaluation etc... then go from their.
Just wanted to know a bit more about IGF-1...
But arent people with low igf-1 usually short? im about 190cm or 6"2 - 6"3 with low-igf-1
It seems that you have some sort of heavy metals poisoning which in the end can result in disbalance in hormone values.
poisoning influence testicular cells ( leydig cells also ) responsible for testosterone production also result in hormonal disbalance and all kind of serious problems. It also influence brain and brain glands- talamus, and others
you should be check out the reason of poisoning ( job, food or else ).
take some mineral Zeolithe to clean your sistem a little, but metals can be cumulative in the body with - hard to clean -.
