In NIDDM, concentrations of IGFBP-1 are related to those of insulin, insulin sensitivity, serum lipoproteins and PAI-1 activity. The relationship between concentrations of IGFBP-1 and HDL-cholesterol is not explained by insulin. Concentrations of IGF-1 are linked to HDL-cholesterol, and this is not explained by levels of IGFBP-1. IGFBP-1 concentrations were related to PAI-1 activity, and this may be explained by insulin, which regulates the production of IGFBP-1 and PAI-1.
