IGF-1 blood tests are used to diagnose growth abnormalities and to evaluate pituitary function. However, you may want a blood test to measure your IGF-1 if you are about to start a programme of intermittent fasting, or if you have already been intermittent fasting and would like to assess the effect it has had. High IGF1 levels can be associated with high protein intake.
