## Here's the difference between cc,ml,mg,mcg

What is the difference between a cc, a ml, an I.U., a mg and a mcg?

A: A cc (cubic centimeter) is equal to a ml (milliliter). They measure volume. For example if a vial contains 10 ml of liquid, that is the same as 10 ccs. A mg (milligram) measures the dose of a drug, A mg is equal to 1/1000 of a gram. A mcg (microgram) is equal to 1/1000 of milligram. An IU (International Unit) is also used to measure the dose of a preparation.

Calculating the gear needed: If you're taking Deca 300 (1cc) 2xw for 600 mgs each week that is 2cc...2 shots a week x 12 week cycle = 24 shots and you'll need 2.5 (10ml-cc) bottles...

For anyone searching...hope this helps.
