HGH Dosages in Needle?

On a 50 unit slin needle - how much is 1 iu?

Seems I recall it’s like 15 or something like that.

The only way it would be 15 is if for some odd reason you used 1.5 cc to mix up your product.

Your question basically makes no sense. 1 unit is 1 unit. Insulin is typically sold at the strength of 100 iu/ml so your 50 unit syringe is really a 1/2 cc syringe and the “50” units = 1/2 ml.

ml = cc

But just because insulin is sold at 100iu/ml doesn’t mean your growth hormone is automatically going to be the same strength. You have to be careful and check it out.

iu are a measure of strength, not of volume or weight.

Yeah sorry - I had a script and the doc had told me to just take 2.8 daily.

I’m on ration now so trying to figure.

I know that I mix two 50 syringes of water in with the powder.

First there were 18 iu bottles and now they are 10 IU bottles.
