Dietary predictors of the insulin-like growth factor system in adolescent females: results from the Dietary Intervention Study in Children (DISC)
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 2010 Mar;91(3) :643-650
AbstractBackground: The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system is associated with the adult diet and chronic disease. Childhood diet may influence chronic disease through its effect on the IGF system; however, there is limited information describing the dietary predictors of the IGF system in adolescents. Objective: We examined associations between dietary food intake [fat, protein (animal and vegetable), carbohydrate, lactose, dietary fiber, calcium, zinc, and sodium] and serum IGF-I, IGF binding protein 1 (IGFBP-1), IGF binding protein 3 (IGFBP-3), and the IGF-I: IGFBP-3 molar ratio in adolescent females. Design: One hundred fifty-nine adolescent females in the Dietary Intervention Study in Children (age range: 14-18 y; 0.2-6.3 y post-menarche) were included. The dietary intake was assessed via three 24-h dietary recalls. IGF-related biomarkers were determined by using radioimmunoassays. Associations between dietary intakes and biomarkers were assessed with Pearson's correlations and multivariable linear regression. Dietary intakes and biomarkers were logarithmically transformed; thus, beta coefficients represented percentages. Results: In analyses adjusted for energy, age, and time since menarche, significant correlations (P < 0.05) were as follows: IGF-I with total protein, lactose, calcium, and sodium; IGFBP-3 with total fat (inverse), lactose, fiber, and calcium; IGF-I/IGFBP-3 with lactose and calcium; and IGFBP-1 with vegetable protein. In multivariable analyses, significant predictors of IGF-I were energy (beta = 0.14, P < 0.05) and calcium (beta = 0.14, P < 0.01), the significant predictor of IGFBP-3 was calcium (beta = 0.07, P < 0.05), and significant predictors of IGFBP-1 were vegetable protein (beta = 0.49, P < 0.05) and body mass index-for-age percentile (beta = 20.01, P < 0.001). Conclusion: This study provides evidence that dietary intake affects IGF-related biomarkers-particularly elevated calcium with IGF-I and IGFBP-3 and elevated vegetable protein with IGFBP-1-and, to our knowledge, is novel in reporting these associations in adolescent females. The Dietary Intervention Study in Children was registered at clinicaltrials. gov as NCT00000459. Am J Clin Nutr 2010;91:643-50.
