Recombinant human insulin-like growth factor-I abolishes changes in insulin requirements consequent upon growth hormone pulsatility in young adults with type I diabetes mellitus.

Abstract:

To investigate whether recombinant human insulin-like growth factor-I (rhIGF-I) has direct effects on the insulin requirement to maintain euglycemia independent of the growth hormone (GH) level, nine subjects with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus ([IDDM] seven females; median (range) age, duration of diabetes, and hemoglobin A1C [HbA1C], 16.9 (12.5 to 21.9) years, 11.8 (4.6 to 16.8) years, and 9.8% (7.9% to 14.1%), respectively) underwent two euglycemic studies (6:00 PM to 8:00 AM) after d...
