Hey boys! Some of you may know me from around the board. Anyways, I'm currently looking to try IGF-1, but not during PCT of my current cycle. I was looking to run it solo afterwards. I have been researching IGF-1 & have read the stickies. I just have a few quesitons. I am aware that hardly any long term IGF-1 studies have been done on humans & that this is a risk, like everything else, that I would be taking out of my own free will. I read that IGF-1 affects all cells in the body, mainly skeletal. muscle, liver, kidney, adipose, and some other cells. One question I have is its effect on the heart? Could it also cause hyperplasia/hypertrophy for heart cells? I'm concerned about an enlarged heart/organs. I read a study where IGF-1 plays an important role in the development of cardiac hypertrophy. I read another where IGF-1 helps with heart failure. I also had been reading & found a few studies where IGF-1 was thought to contribute to certain cancers, such as breast and pancreatic cancer? Anyways, these are just some of the concerns I have considering IGF-1. Looking at it realistically, I understand that running a low dose (40mcg/day) for a short period (28 or so days) probably wouldn't have such an adverse affect on the human body. In some studies, tiny rats are getting around 180mcg/day with hardly any adverse sides. So as far as its effects on the body, what can you guys tell me? Lake? Anyone? I'm just a little confused as I've been running into contradicting research information.
Another question I had was dose & pinning. I plan on getting 1 vial of 1mg/1ml & running at 40mcg/ed. Would I be covered? I suck at the conversions. I'm assuming that 1mg=10^6mcg? So dividing 10^6 by 40 should tell me? As far as pinning, I will be pinning IM & I'm thinking about bilaterally. I have read that IGF-1 causes & doesn't cause localized growth? I'm not sure which the best or most effective pinning method would be? Also, this would be my first pinning experience, so as far as pins, if I get 3/10cc 29g slin pins, how would this work? I know with 1cc slin pins its 2 tick marks (to the 2nd IU). Anyways, guys thanks for the help! Sorry if these are newb questions.
Also Lake, I saw you guys are out of IGF-1 LR3? I checked IBE & couldn't find any? Any idea where I could maybe get my hands on some or when you guys will be getting more in?
