I.U vs. cc....
I know that most things are measured in cc's and growth hormone is measured in i.u.'s. Whats the difference between i.u.'s and cc's? Thanks...

IU is a measurement of activity and is dependent upon the compound. I.e. one IU of insulin is not necessarily the same as one IU of GH, in fact it's not.
Most slin is in 1 of 2 standardized concentrations 40IU/mL or 100IU/mL. GH will be XIU/mL depending on the volume in which you reconstitute it.

Only if you're referring to something that is 100IU/cc
There is no universal conversion from IU to mL

1mg of GH equals 2.7 IU... if thats what you might be reffering to... some GH (like Genotropin) is sold in milligrams versus international units...

Like Warrior said, 1mg of GH is 2.7IU...if you reconstitute 1mg of GH is 1mL of BW, then you have 2.7IU/mL. If you reconstitute it in 0,5mL, you have 5.4IU/mL.
1mg of IGF-1 LR3 is not equal to 2.7IUs, as IGF-1 has its own mg to IU conversion, as does every other compound.
