Insulin is believed to be the prime regulator of insulin-like growth factor binding protein 1 (IGFBP-1) secretion, and in normal subjects acute insulin induced hypoglycaemia exerts a rapid effect on concentrations of IGFBP-1, and may also influence insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) concentrations. The rise in IGFBP-1 concentrations in normal subjects following hypoglycaemia has been suggested to be due to suppression of endogenous insulin secretion. We have examined this further by studying diabetics with no endogenous insulin secretion.
