    GH Insulin frequency

    I have been using GH only for approx. 1 year and now I would
    like to add insulin ...yes I have done a lot of reseach...I am currently
    using 4IU 5 days on and two off. I don't lift everyday... so my question
    is do I continue to use the slin with GH on my cardio and off day...or
    just use the GH by itself ?

    I thought I read that GH with slin was good post cardio workout for
    recovery.

    The idea behind using slin is ti get the glucose and amino acids into the muscles you just broke down during your w/o. I've never heard of it being used that way but I don't know everything either

    Insulin is taken only if needed because GH is an antagonist of slin. Checking your BG levels 2 hours after your GH shot will indicate the need for slin or not!

    What BG number should highlight the need for insulin use Mallet?

    The combined nutrient shuttling properties of the two are another good reason, but the fact that both both slin and GH are required for IGF-1 production is another. GH does lower slin levels, like Mallet said, but the closer together you take the two, the better IMO. So, after checking BG levels after dosing consistent IUs of GH at consistent times of the day to get a feel for how it affects your BG levels, you can incorporate slin into the mix accordingly and eventually dose the two at the same time.

    Thanx for clarifying that!

    I have found a lot of discussion about this but I use GH at bed time when my body is at rest and can recover, the slin is used post wo to usher the glucose and aminos right after the wo. Some people feel tired after slin so in my case I would not even consider doing them at the same time...everyone is different.
