I have a buddy that is hypoglycemic… I don’t have a whole lot of understanding of hypoglycemia…"
I am sure you won’t like this at all… but i try to treat all people the same as one another so…
Why are you advising him on using drugs for a condition you do not even slightly understand? (as is clear the way you speak about him ‘having’ hypoglycaemia)
I am all for self medication, but only if someone actually has the experience and knowledge to do so effectively and safely - but if not, hey, its their body.
But advising someone in an area you do not even moderately ‘get’ is really dodgy man.
You are really starting to piss me off now Joe.
One minute you are a noob, asking others for advice, and the next you are some sort of self-proclaimed ‘guru’, who claims to have trained “many, many men”.
Wind your neck in son. I’m sure you have given out shitloads of dodgy advice in your junkie days.
You know how it is, so don’t get all high and mighty on FG.
A friend asks you for advice, seeing as you have a reputation for that sort of thing. You either:
A) Tell him “Sorry, but I need to get more info” and then ask others - which is what FG is doing here.
B) Dispense what little (probably bad) advice you have anyway, just because being asked for your opinion makes you feel like king shit of turd hill.
FG has come to ask us for advice so he can assist his friend. I see nothing wrong with that, when the alternative - see the GP and try to get him to advise you on GH Vs hypoglycemia - is likely to be less effective.
At least here we have the likes of EgnatiosJ to advise him on this complicated subject.
FG: Whilst GH tends to generally cause hyperglycemia, is can have a paradoxical reaction in some folks (like my fiancee), driving blood sugar downwards (probably due to IGF1 triggering the insulin receptor in skeletal muscle, which it can do, but with roughly 20x less affinity than insulin).
If your friend suffers from an inherent inability to raise BG levels - for whatever reason - then Gh might cause an even more hypoG state or it may trigger a transient increase in BG which might cause a reactive insulin release, followed by an even deeper hypo. Not good.
If your friend is set on using then caution is obviously the watchword. I suggest starting with 1iu subQ (for slow release and hence more manageable/predicatable effects), before even considering i.m.
I.v. is probably off the cards, for at least as long as it takes to discern the cause of the hypoglycemia, if not forever.
That’s just my opinion though.
Alex, I have been training people professionally for 7 years now. Over that time i have trained a hell of a lot of people… significantly more than you have i should add.
You don’t know me - do you? You have the small window of what i choose to write here… don’t take that and even begin to think you have some idea about me, my experience or whatever. it is very ignorant of you.
I came to this site FAR from a ‘noob’ when it came to training, diet and physiology… and in the area of PED it is down to my studying of textbooks and good on-line resources - spurred on by some info on this site, which meant my knowledge in the area improved very quickly.
Now - as i am sure you know as someone who was kicked out of their degree (yet still seems to put the letters after their name) - educating yourself (when done thoroughly) can be almost as fulfilling intellectually as a university based education.
As for ‘my junkie days’… well, no not really. Why would ‘my junkie’ days have anything to do with my giving advice?! lmao!
Seems like a pathetic and cheap shot to me - except the trouble is, not only am i PROUD of my roots, and the adversity i faced to get to where i am today, but you are the one who still enjoys a bit of coke here and there while i don’t touch a thing anymore.
Don’t throw stones…
As for advice on AAS or anything - training, diet whatever - i have never, nor would never assume to advise someone in an area i have no idea about. I may try to help through discussion but i would NEVER ‘put’ someone on a drug, let alone a drug that is for a condition i dont even understand.
Don’t assume you know jack about me Alex… I am no more ‘guru’ than anyone else here who posts answering questions and discussion options.
If i see a post by anyone where they are acting irresponsibly, i will probably point that out - JUST as i would get treated myself!
That is just me, and sorry ‘bud’ but i aint going to stop just because it pisses you off…
I really couldn’t care less my hairy backed brother.[/quote]
i think the main thing is is that FG phrased the whole thing as a question …as in … i don’t know what to do can you guys offer advice? Not hey this is what i am doing. All semantics i guess, as far as i am concerned the only phd around here is Bill, the rest of us are just posing educated guesses based on research and experience so lets not attack each other…group hug?..maybe not
