Objective: Our aim was to determine whether serum Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) levels were different between type 2 diabetic patients and non-diabetic control group. We also aimed to establish any relationship that might exist between the serum IGF-I and IGFBP-1 levels with the urinary albumin excretion (UAE), creatinine clearance and urinary N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) excretion (as a marker of renal tubular dysfunction) and other parameters (such as age, duration of diabetes, treatment, etc.) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM).
