    an IU is dependent on the compound.....so an IU of slin is not necessarily equal to an IU of anything else, unless it's in a concentration that happens to make them equal. Activity (IU) is pertaining to the mass of the compound, so when you have it in solution, the activity/mL can be anything.


    Slin is special in that it's almost always in 100IU/mL standard solutions

    because if you tried to measure slin out with a regular dart you would end up killing yourself.

    This is with a insulin syringe...bd ultra-fine insulin syringes to be exact, 1/2cc, but along the side, it is measured in units... up to 50 units.

    So it would be safe to assume 1/2 CC is about 50 units? I am thinking about trying IGF1. What is the normal dosing? 2 or 3 units each time twice a day? Also I heard some people do 5 days on, 2 days off each week? Is this normal? Also I dont want to ask for source but is MR still in business?

    so if it is 50 uinits counts each tick and go from there in ius

    100iu dart goes in increments of 2 up to 10-20-30-40-50 and so on to 100.

    so each tick is 1 iu for measuring slin.. follow me here?


    If you're measuring ifg-1r3 then each tick is 20mcg

    1ml of igf =1000mcg or 1gm

    you guys follow me?

    From everything I have read they are still alive and kicking. I sure hope so at least because I am ready to put in an order.
