Useful for predicting the future development of type 1 diabetes in asymptomatic children, adolescents, and young adults when used in conjunction with family history, HLA-typing, and other autoantibodies, including GD65S/81596 Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase (GAD65) Antibody Assay, and serum and islet cell antigen 2 (IA-2) antibodies. Used for differential diagnosis of type 1 versus type 2 diabetes, for evaluating diabetics with insulin resistance in patients with established diabetes (type 1 or type 2), and for the investigation of hypoglycemia in nondiabetic subjects.
Useful for evaluation of growth disorders, growth hormone deficiency or excess in children and adults, monitoring of recombinant human growth hormone treatment, and follow-up of individuals with acromegaly and gigantism.
Useful for diagnosis of growth disorders, for diagnosing adult growth hormone deficiency, for monitoring of recombinant human growth hormone treatment, and as a possible adjunct to insulin-like growth factor 1 and growth hormone in the diagnosis and follow-up of acromegaly and gigantism.
Useful for the determination of iodine overload using serum specimens, and monitoring iodine levels in individuals taking iodine-containing drugs.
