Interleukin-6, also known as IL-6, acts as both a pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine. It is secreted by immune cells in response to trauma and cellular damage related with the aging process. IL-6 is essential to the body’s ability to repair aging cells and tissues.
Life Extension® tests IGF-1 and IL-6 together because both proteins are associated with the regeneration of healthy tissues.
Fasting is not required. Take all medications as prescribed, including growth hormone replacement. Do not take supplements the day of the test. This combination of tests is not included in any other Life Extension panel.
