HGH side effects
so using one sources gh at 2 ius had minor tingling nothing major, increase to 3 ius and my hands swell up, devolving minor carpel tunnel like symptoms, go back down to 2ius then gradually work back up to 3. I continue to just kinda deal with the sides but the slower I increase the less side effect I experience. I switched brands and increased to 4 ius at the same time, almost immediately the swelling went way down, and carpel tunnel has almost completely gone away. I thought "this stuff is amazing" also seen some decent fat loss at this point. But now that I think about it does that mean that this new stuff is "less potent" and that's why I experience less side effects or could the first brand have had more impurities? Does anyone happen to know if high impurity gh tends to cause more water retention or is that a side effect of the actual HGH itself? also could my body have just acclimated to the gh and it was just coincidence that I was switching brands at that time? I never got bloods done while on the first brand so I dont really have a baseline to go off of. Both are considered reputable sources here, not pharma, not blue/black tops, like they have labels on the bottles and one is liquid gh, if that helps at all idk. Let me know what you guys think, Thanks
I’ve noticed this as well with two different brands from the same source. After some serious digging, I found out that the liquid GH is 10mg and the powder was 37mg. The 10mg did what it was supposed to with minimal sides, and the powder gave me all the sides. What I ended up doing is giving the 10mg to my wife and she is loving it at 1iu per day. She upped it to 1.5 iu and immediately got some undesirable sides and dropped back down to 1iu. 3iu of the powder seemed a little too strong for me, so I decided to mix my next bottle with 2cc of Bac water instead of one figuring that this would divide the potency down to 18.5 mg. Now at 3iu per day, I really feel comfortable with my dosage, and feel like I’m getting almost twice the GH than usual if I was still using the liquid.
If the source won’t tell you how many mg his GH is, find a new source.
if it says 10 ius then its like 3.3 mgs it doesnt matter how much water you add, that would only water down your individual dose if your were to keep drawing back to the same line. so I'm guessing the 37 mg bottle was a 100iu bottle and the 10mg was probably sold as maybe 36 ius? but all 100iu kits should be 30 something mgs. I think you might be confusing ius with units on the syringe. or maybe im the one whos wrong and have been calculating my stuff all wrong this whole time lol. So if you added twice the water and are still drawing up to the 30 line your now only doing 1.5 ius of gh not 3 ius. its still 30 units of liquid but not ius of gh. I think
Yeah, I’m probably explaining myself wrong, but I know for sure that my powder GH is definitely much stronger than my liquid GH, LOL
Don't judge the efficacy of GH based on side effects. That can be very misleading. IGF test is the only true way. Lot of factors come into play, dimers, purity, diet, AAS, OTC sups, which sock you put on first etc. May not be able to feel your hands on one brand and switch to another at same dose and it goes away but IGF is elevated the same with both. The longer you are on and the slower you titrate dose up will both have a factor in minimizing the so-called negative sides like carpel tunnel etc.
Thanks, I know your right I was just unsure if certain side effects were known to be associated with lower quality stuff and less sides with higher quality. But I'm happy not having sides and seems to be keeping me leaner as well so its a win-win for me!
Fillers and binders etc may also factor in on how much of the neg sides one may experience. Some brands just seem to produce less sides for me than others. I know they are all good quality but just end up with different amount of side effects from some of them. As a general rule of thumb though, you would want to have GH that has zero dimers and very high purity >96%. Generalizing here again, but that should help minimize the chances for neg affects.
The one side effect I do realize regardless of brand is that once I get above 6iu I turn into a complete zombie. All I want to do is sleep.
Don't quote me on this as it from other people anectdotalnexperiences. From my research prior to purchasing GH. Seeing labs results from batches with higher dimmer seems to give people side affects. I believe dimmer is suppose to be 0 or next to 0. I have seen EU brand UGL's testing at 0 dimmer.
Ya unfortunately neither source has posted lab results for these, I don't think. But there is a source that posted a good generic with zero dimmers lately, that I might have to try out. I've heard a lot of guys say they get sleepy and unproductive on gh so I was worried about that, I hate anything that makes me slow or tired, but so far I haven't experienced it, maybe a tiny bit after my first shot ever but that's it. Ill have to keep an eye out for that as I increase but idk how much higher ill go.
It’s so weird because everyone seems to have different experiences. For instance, even with the 10mg liquid GH, I get extremely tired and have to take it before bed, meanwhile, my wife takes it at 5am on an empty stomach, and she’s completely energized for the day, not tired at all. Blows my mind! She like to tease me and say that I’m just lazy, but I can definitely feel the difference on days I try to go back to morning pinning. It really makes my day a lot harder and uncomfortable
