IGF-1 in dairy vs meat/omni partner
So this could pop into 'relationships' but is more a health question I shall funnel IN to my relationship...
My partner doesn't eat dairy. Partly because i have so many good substitutes around the house and we don't need both but partly because IGF-1 freaks him out and whilst sugar doesn't, dairy is the thing that f*cks with his blood sugar.
Anyway, I was just wondering (and struggling to find data ANYWHERE) what the IGF-1 content is in dairy versus meat anyway? This might be a gateway to his vegetarianism, if he wants it... >:D
I actually thought it was sort of equal and he's sure it's far far worse.
I also heard somewhere that meat protein spikes insulin so....
:nerd: Anybody clued in on this?
I'm not sure if this would be of any use. It's not specifically dairy vs meat, it just refers to animal protein (also, sorry if I have misunderstood the question!)
Study of (female) meateaters, vegetarians and vegans though it does refer to men within the cohort:
"The main finding of this study is that total IGF-I levels were significantly 13% lower in vegan women compared with meat-eaters and vegetarians, a finding very similar to that reported in men from this cohort (19) . Perhaps of equal importance is the finding that IGFBP-1 and IGFBP-2 concentrations (not measured among men) were ∼40% higher in vegan women than in meat-eaters and vegetarians. Although the relationship between IGF-I and its binding proteins is not completely understood, it is thought that an increase in IGFBP-1 and IGFBP-2 concentrations may lead to an increased binding of IGF-I, thus reducing the proportion of IGF-I that is available to enter tissues (33) .
Overall, these data support the hypothesis that nutritional factors specific to a vegan diet may reduce circulating levels of total and bioavailable IGF-I."
Table 5 shows the mean concentration of IGF-I, IGFBP-1 and IGFBP-2 by diet group after additional adjustment for selected nutrients. Vegetarians seem to actually have a higher concentration of IGF-1 than meateaters.
Totally gonna share this with him.
Trying so hard not to be that veg partner and change his beliefs but it feels a lot like he wants to live that way and is just kind of...comfy with familiarity...
Just to clarify one point, its not that meat and dairy have IGF-I.
Rather, they prompt peoples bodies to produce our own IGF-I
The data on vegans indicated that their finding of IGF-I being lower had a 7 in 10,000 chance of being wrong :laugh:
FABULOUS. Thankyou. *clicks copy and paste and plops this into an email...*
