    Question Low IGF-1 Levels

    New here, brother directed me to this forum in hopes of some help.


    Back in 2017 I broke my clavicle snowboarding for the second time, the time before was a year prior.

    First time it healed fine, I mean as good as breaking a bone and letting it heal on itís own can.

    Following year did the same thing, doctor noticed after many many months (6 months) it wasnít really healing like it did prior, I was 18 at the time. (Iím 22 now) year went by still wasnít healed. So she sent me to get some blood work done. (8 hour long blood test 12 hours of fasting before no food or water during as well)

    Came back my IGF-1 levels were 167 ng/ml. From my understanding normal ranges are 281-510
    Vitamin D deficient, was put on a ton of IUs of vitamin D. And honestly at this point in time I donít remember what the hell the doctors plan was to do with my IGF1... I ended up I guess stopping my progression because I got the bill for the blood test ($5,000) I was actually sent to the wrong facility.

    Long story short, my IGF lvls are low, Iím always fucking tired and take a nap most days. And when I say tired Iím exhausted. I power through it but itís getting annoying, I want my life back I want to be normal. What is the corrective action for all this? I now have good insurance and donít have to worry about a bill so much anymore.

    Thank you for any help, time and information provided.

    Normal ranges are considered 88-246 ng/Ml I believe, so you fall into normal range.

    What do your other hormone levels look like?

    After looking online I guess the ‘normal’ range levels of that igf-1 test they gave me were incorrect.

    The rest of the tests that day I don’t think pertain to this, but once I get home and can get on a computer I will add in all the tests done and levels of said tests.

    Thanks!

    The other things I was tested for were,

    Phosphorus Plasma
    Magnesium Plasma
    PTH Serum
    TSH Thyroid Stim Hormone
    Free T4 Serum
    Glucose
    Bun
    Creatinine
    Sodium, potassium, chloride, total co2, Total protein, albumin and calcium plasma
    Bilirubin Total
    alk phos
    Ast(sgot)
    ALT(sgpt)

    I'm unaware if any of these directly correlate with what is going on. If they do ill post up my levels from the test. Thanks again for your time and help, I appreciate it greatly.
