I am curious if DMD boys on steroids have a higher IGF-1 results.  I believe normal range is between 62 to 337.  We were on GH therapy for 1 year and then went off of it.  It took many months to get off of it.  Now it is once again higher at 500.  I am wondering if anyone knows if there is one of those labs that is variable....like the CPK.  I am also wondering if the steroids cause the IGF-1 to be higher. 

Thanks.

I am starting my kid on IGF, can you tell me the dose you are using, weight and age of your kids?

Juan,

I do think that the dose would depend on the test results (IGF-1 level in the blood) for each child. When you say you are starting your son on IGF do you mean growth hormones? So he has been to an endocrinologist?
