The growth hormone secreted by the pituitary gland is responsible for bone, height and mass growth and density. The growth hormone test is conducted to evaluate its level. The test includes a blood test for the growth hormone IGF-1 and IGBP-3. IGF-1 is responsible for regulating the level of growth hormone. It remains constant throughout the day. It is used to determine if the body is secreting enough GH or not. IGBP-3 is a protein that carries IGF-1. The test is conducted to detect the deficiency or excess of GH.
