Slin Cycle Syringe Dosage


#1

Hey guys im new here

my last aas cycle was a basic deca susta stack & few clen cycles 2 years ago

So i got my hands on slin its Actrapid 40iu/1ml of 10ml vial
I have planned to do 4 week cycle starting with 2iu bumping it upto 10iu & staying there

before i get spammed i know slin is dangerous & can be fatal
but so are other drugs.
I will be taking 10gm of carbs per iu & WILL have some fatty foods as i want some b.f to look beefed up
precautions :- will have candies & SUGAR(YES! RAW SUGAR) on hand along with glucose drink
It might seem like overkill but i am also going to get a medical band incase something goes wrong

So i am actually confused how much iu in syringe or the measurement
I have 40iu/ml & also the syringe as shown has 40 units

I will be starting at 2iu so can anyone(experienced) mark it on syringe pic where will 2,3,4 & so on iu's will be

MY SPECULATION is (which might be wrong)
the first 5 markings starting from top will be 5 iu that means i must fill the top 2 markings

pretty easy to figure out really.

The 5 marking on your pin will be 2iu

The 10 will be 4

15-6

20-8

25-10

30-12

35-14

40-16


#3

The 5 marking on suringe is 5iu


#4

40 unit syringe equals 1ml
Slin is 40iu per ml, therefore each increment will equal 1iu.


#5

No, unless the syringe says its a 1ml than its not going to be 1ml. Usually 100iu is 1ml.

IU is a way of measure concentration not volume.


#6

The syringe says its 1ml

Sir please elaborate


#9

Is 40iu/ml unusual for insulin? Al insulin pins i have seen is 1ml and it seem logical that the tool made for using insulin is marked to 40iu


#10

Googled it and found there are many different concentrations and different sized syringes… Should probably make sure what size syringe is


#11

i have 50 iu syringes, that are .5ml, they are just smaller but the concentration would be the same, no?

Just draw 1ml of water from a regular 3cc syringe and see if you can fit that in the insulin syringe if you’re not sure.


#12

Op can you post another pic of syringes, like the label of the bag.

Can you take one of the syringes out and see if it’s labeled in mls on one side of the syringe.

This article confirms below post

BUT i am still not able to understand how
my logic is 1ml contains 40iu insulin & i have 10 ml vial
so its down to 40 iu per 1 ml so 400iu in 10 ml (40 x 10)

but HOW can the 5 marking on u40 syringe be 2 units? HOW ?

Here it is


#15

Think u should read the article again… It explains how u should dose if u have u100 syringes… U have u40 which is made for the concentration u are using


#16

Ok by the article and picture those syringes are meant for dosing 40iu per ml insulin.

So, each individual mark is 1iu


#17

Im still confused so the syringes are 1ml?


#18

10 numbers of single use 1ml syringes

Yes, but the syringe is marked for a 40iu/ml solution. It’s not your standard 100iu- 1ml slin pin

Right. Ok gotcha
