HGH dosage and mode of application
What is required for growth hormone injections
- Insulin syringes (1ml)
- Sterile water for dilution (saline can be used as well).
- For dilution of drugs - syringes with a long needle
- Alcohol wipes for treating skin and ampoules
How to dilute growth hormone
- Use only sterile water for injection or saline
- Do not pour water directly on the powder. Hold the syringe so that water flows along the wall of the vial.
- Do not shake the dissolved hormone! This will reduce its effectiveness. To completely dissolve the drug - rotate the vial slowly and gently.
- The usual dosage for dilution is 1-2 ml of water per vial
How to calculate the dosage of growth hormoneThe effective dose of growth hormone for an average athlete is 5-10 IU per day.
There is also the option of calculating the dosage depending on the weight of the athlete. The recommended dose is 0.6 IU per 1 kg of body weight per week. So an athlete weighing 100 kg needs 60 IU of HGH per week. The dosage should be divided into a certain number of days. With a daily intake of this - 8.5 IU of HGH daily, when used three times a week - 20 IU.
It is inexpedient to apply HGH a course less than 6 weeks . The optimal duration of the course allowing you to achieve a real and lasting effect is 2-3 months.
Suppose there are 10 IU in the vial, and you need 5 IU of hormone for a injection. If you used 2 ml of water for dilution - you need to collect a full insulin syringe (1ml). If 1 ml of water is used - then collect up to half insulin syringe (0.5 ml).
How to inject HGH
- Where to make the injection? The best place for subcutaneous injection is the abdominal area 6-8 cm from the navel. It is necessary to get into the layer between the skin and muscles. Experiencedly find the point where the injection is painless (some places are very painful).
- Periodically change the injection point, since HGH can cause lipodystrophy - local destruction of the fat layer at the point of injection
- How to inject? Hold the syringe at a 45 degree angle to the skin. Slowly inject the drug and hold the syringe for 5-10 seconds to prevent leakage.
- Inject only with clean hands. Wipe the neck of the vial with an alcohol wipe before use. It will not be superfluous to wipe the injection point as well, although this is not necessary when using insulin syringes.
- Make sure no air bubbles get into the syringe
Useful tips and precautions when injecting growth hormone
- Do injections on an empty stomach and do not eat at least 40 minutes after the injection. This will ensure maximum effect from each injection.
- 4 hours - the minimum break between injections
- Morning injections should be done immediately after waking up. This will stop the catabolic processes in the body. It is better to do the second injection immediately after training or before going to bed
- High amount of protein should be in the diet- not less than 2-3 grams per 1 kg of weight per day. As for simple carbohydrates - their amount should be minimized.
How to store growth hormone
- The finished solution should be stored in a refrigerator (temperature range 2-8 degrees Celcium).
- HGH powder can be transported at normal room temperature for several weeks. Overheating should be avoided however. In long term it should be stored in refrigerator. The shelf life of dry growth hormone - 2 years
