  1. 1. Insulin and IGF-I in type 1 diabetes

    Author : Christina Hedman; Claes-Göran Östenson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Type I diabetes; IGF-I; IGF system; insulin; insulin analogues; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Patients with type I diabetes have alterations in the GH/IGF system with reduced levels of circulating IGF-I, as well as other disturbances in the components of the IGF system.Alterations of both local and circulating IGF-I and its binding proteins (IGFBPs) have been associated with metabolic and vascular manifestations of diabetes and also with atherosclerosis.

  2. 2. Effects of GH and liver-derived IGF-I on growth and metabolism

    Author : Klara Sjögren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GH; IGF-I; Insulin; GHRH; Somatostatin; GHS; Body growth; Body composition; Liver; Bone mineral content; Bone mineral density.;

    Abstract : Growth hormone (GH) exerts major effects on body growth and metabolism. Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) is expressed in response to GH and is known to mediate many of the effects of GH. The largest expression of IGF is found in the liver although it is expressed in virtually every tissue of the body. READ MORE
