1. ## Igf And Slin Pin Readings????

I have 1/2cc slin pinz. How much would 40mg of IGF be on the markings?

2. search bro.... I got this off of my own thread
1mg = 1000mcg... assuming there is 1ml of liquid we can say that 1ml = 1000mcg and also = 100units...
So 2 units = 20 mcg
The best way to measure this is to use an insulin syringe. You can get away with a 1cc syringe but I prefer to use the .5cc or even the .33cc ones. They measure out each unit, so when you are measuring two units it is much easier on the smaller pin. While the 1cc syringe is fine, it is mesured out by two IU at a time. So one "tick" on the 1cc is 2iu, the .5cc each "tick" is one IU.

3. but the dosage is 40mcg, how many units is that on the 1/2cc slin pin.

math buddy..... 2iu is 20mcg..... so 2iu + 2iu is 4iu.... thus 40mcg

5. cool, so 40mcg equals 40 units on my pin and the other 10 i fill with bw for a total of 50, right?
