Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) has a molecular structure similar to that of insulin. As an essential mediator of growth hormone, IGF-1 plays a vital role in growth of children and anabolic effects of adults. We evaluated the serum levels of IGF-1 in patients with hyperthyroidism or euthyroidism.In this study, 30 patients each of Graves' disease with hyperthyroidism (HY group) and euthyroid individuals (EU group) were recruited. The HY patients were treated with antithyroid regimens as clinically indicated. No medications were given to EU patients. The demographic characteristics and anthropometric and laboratory data of both groups at baseline and 6 months were compared. Associations between levels of IGF-1 and free thyroxine (fT4), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), or log transformation of TSH (logTSH) were analyzed.At baseline, the HY patients had significantly higher serum IGF-1 levels than EU patients (median [Q1, Q3]: 305.4 [257.4, 368.1] vs. 236.7 [184.6, 318.8] ng/mL, P = .007). At 6 months, the HY patients still had higher serum levels of IGF-1 than EU patients (299.5 [249.9, 397.9] vs 222.1 [190.2, 305.4] ng/mL, P = .003). At baseline, the serum levels of IGF-1 in the HY and EU patients were positively associated with fT4 (β = 29.02, P = .002) and negatively associated with TSH (β = -31.46, P = .042) and logTSH (β = -29.04, P = .007). The associations between serum levels of IGF-1 with fT4 or TSH became insignificant at 6 months. However, the serum IGF-1 levels had persistent negative associations with logTSH at 6 months (β = -26.65, P = .021). The negative associations between IGF-1 and logTSH at baseline and 6 months remained significant even after adjustment with sex and age (β = -20.22, P = .023 and β = -20.51, P = .024, respectively).The HY patients had higher serum IGF-1 levels than EU patients. The serum IGF-1 concentrations were negatively associated with logTSH in patients with hyperthyroidism or euthyroidism.
