    IGF-1 Levels and PEDs?

    In the end, when it comes to taking PEDs, is it all about agonizing one's IGF levels for growth? More so IGF-1 levels? I have seen studies mentioning this and gurus too. Just wondering. I know there are other hormones in play but it seems like taking anything with raise IGF levels in the end.

    I intend to learn more about this but I signed on this evening because Facebook is annoying and I'm interested in some light reading.
    I hope there is more development to this thread when I check back on it at a later time.
    Nice question!
