AbstractA previous study showed an inverse association between the insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and the risk of impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes mellitus. Moreover, myocardial infarction patients with high baseline IGF-I levels had a lower risk of diabetes mellitus. These data suggested a protective effect of IGF-I against the development of metabolic syndrome. However, there are no longitudinal data regarding IGF-I and metabolic syndrome. The aim of the present study was to investigate the longitudinal association between IGF-I and metabolic syndrome.
