    IGF's influence...


    As we all know, one hormone ties to another and supplementing leads to a chain reaction....

    I was curious as to what effect IGF-1R3 has on the endocrine system....?

    Testosterone/anabolic supps = aromatase/ estrogen /dht etc....What does IGF trigger..>?? Is it side effect free in this regard..?

    Basically free IGF-1 binds to the IGF-1R and IR (Affinity 1:0.1 and vice versa). IGF-1 can lead to hyperplasia, hypertrophy and as it does bind to the IR hypoglycemia is a real possibility.

    If you want to know about IGF-1 then reading about CHO metabolism is something you will want to do. Grunts IGF-1 thread (stickied at the top of this forum) will help you understand IGF-1 use in relation to bodybuilding.
