The answer is there in Einstein's sticky but let me explain...

A u-100 insulin pin shows 1ml split into 100, so each little line represents 1/100th of a ml, 10 on the syringe = 1/10th of a ml.

How many little lines = 2iu depends entirely on how much diluent you use to reconstitute your vial of GH.

6mg is roughly equivalent to 18iu so I personally would reconstitute it with 1.8ml of diluent, this way 10 on the syringe will be equal to 1iu, 20 will equal 2iu.

Get it?

So if I used 1 ml of sterile water, how many lines would that be then?
Sorry for all the questions, just want to make sure I get it right.

100 divided by 18 = 5.55555555, so you would aim for between 5 and 6 on the syringe for 1iu, 11 on the syringe for 2iu.
I chose 1.8ml because it makes the maths alot easier.
