need help with igf dosing
I read 60mcg is an ideal dose of LR3 IGF-I.
I have 2mL@1mg/mL, so have 2mg of igf
this would be 2000mcg
1 unit on my slin syringe seems to be 1/100 of a mL. So do I draw up to the 0.6 unit mark? That is insanely difficult to get that accurate even with slin syringe. Any help on how much to draw up would be greatly appreciated.

100iu = 1ml
So 10iu = 100mcg
1iu = 10mcg
Its easier using the 50iu slin pin.

How can I convert from international units (IU) to milligrams or micrograms?
Generally speaking, you can't. IU's measure the potency of a drug, not its mass or weight.

Maybe what they mean is that IU is a unit of volume and drugs usually aren't sold by volume, but by weight; so you realy can't convert from iu to mg/mcg since that is converting volume to weight. If that is true then I would draw up 6iu in my slin pin for a 60mcg dose.
On workout days do I take igf post workout and non-workout days upon rising?
11-08-2005, 12:41 PM #5What this means is that IU is dependent on the potency of the substance, and each substance would have a different IU to milligram conversion. For example, 1000 IU of Vitamin C would have a different weight than 1000 IU of Vitamin A
I am thinking it has to be volume. Like saying 1mL of vitA would contain more "vitamin weight" than 1mL of vitc.

I have been thinking about this and came to this: A unit is 1/100 of a mL, but it is not a IU. For example take HCG . You buy a 5000iu amp and mix it in a 1mL of water. You want to shoot 500iu so that would be 1/10 of your 5000iu/mL solution. So draw up 10 units in your slin pin.
Now lets say you ordered an amp with 1500iu of hcg. You mix with 1 mL of water. You still want to shoot 500iu. So now it's 1/3 of your 1500iu/mL mix so you draw up 33 units in slin pin.
