GH bloodwork for Mk677- opinions?

I got tested for growth hormone to check if my MK677 is real. I didn't really check things about the test though so I think I may not have done it properly. I took 10 mg during the day and then 10 mg before sleeping and then gave the blood sample the next morning. This is the result:

The value here seems pretty normal, not increased. Although I have no baseline. So...my question is, is anybody familiar with GH test results and could these be supraphysilogical somehow? Or, the MK's effect faded over the night so it wasn't increased in the morning? Should I take MK before giving the blood sample?

Perhaps your MK677 is legit but you don't caught a GH pulse during blood extraction. Many said that ibutamoren causes a GH bleed but some studies seem to deny that. Maybe IGF1 is a more reliable indicator.

I am sure some of the studies indicate when GH peak occurs after administration, half like of MK, etc.
I would use that as guidance before performing another test.
Additionally, if you can afford it, I would take one before MK administration and one at the time when "peak" GH is supposed to be attained post-dose.
It would not be perfect, due to the nature of natural GH secretion rhythms, but maybe more informative.

You need to test for igf-1, and have a base bloodwork value for igf-1 before you start mk-677. There is no reliable way that I know of to test GH during the peak with mk-677.

I read that It can't increase the frequency of the pulses, only their intensity and degree. So yes, it seems like one has to time the test to catch a pulse.

Yes, I read that MK half life is 4.7 hours, so maybe something like 2 hours? I also read that they perform GH stimulation tests where they take samples within a 2 hour timeframe after administration of a GH stimulator, so maybe within or at 2 hours from administration.

I think I will get another test where the blood is drawn 2 hours after MK administration, and this test result in this thread can serve as baseline since MK was taken around 13 hours before blood was drawn.

Yes, that would be ideal. I would have done it but it was more expensive than the MK itself. Maybe one day.
I did get a general health check up as well- See, I figure if it's bunk, then they probably put something else in the MK right? I do feel something after I take it, So I feel it has something active in it. If it's anything anabolic, it will definitely mess with my lipids and/or liver values. The results indicate no change to my lipids or liver values from last month. So, it's not anabolic probably.
It is either MK or something entirely out of the field of anabolics. I will now stop the MK and see if I lose some water weight. I was already on legit MK when I switched it out for this one and I have not noted any big change in weight which is a sign that it's legit. If I stop it and notice a big change in weight, then it's probably legit MK.

I posted this (below) under a different MK 677 thread earlier ... but so far, my experience with MK 677 has been very meh. I'm not sure if I've been buying underdosed or fake, but it's done nothing for me so far.
_____________________________________________

MK from MA Research (25 mg per day split into two doses) and my IGF-1 levels came in at 185 (Reference range 52 -- 328 - quest). Prior to using MK, I used Ipamorelin and Mod GRF (3x daily ... dosage escapes me, but I followed what I believe was a standard protocol) and my IGF was 265 (reference range 75 --- 216 - Labcorp).

Most recently I've been using Supreme Labs MK -- same protocol - 25 mg split into two doses. Labs came back after being on for 6 weeks -- IGF 199 (Reference range 52 --- 328 - quest).

1. I never bloated, hungry, or tired on MK from MA Research or Supreme.
2. Body fat didn't drop on MK, but did, somewhat noticeably drop on the peptides.
3. I either don't respond to MK, or, an equally likely possibility, the MK I purchased was underdosed at best, and, well, you can figure out what the worst case would be.

MK will definitely give you hunger. The MK I know is legit is because it reliably gives me hunger, every single time. If it doesn't give you hunger at all, it's most likely bunk. The new one I am testing is odd, I am still evaluating if it gives me hunger. I think so, but it could also be placebo.
