    For those who got their supplies from their doctor, your dosage is usually given by your doctor. Some suppliers also provide their own mixing and dosing instructions. But for those who are trying this for the first time and have no idea yet on how to do the dosing, I am sharing to you how to draw up the right dose based on Dr. Simeons’ original protocol.

    When using HCG vials containing 5,000 IU and mixing 10 cc of bacteriostatic water, 0.25 cc (or 0.25 mL) of the solution contains 125 IU, which is the standard dose advised by Dr. Simeons. When using an ordinary 1 cc syringe, this amount is hard to measure accurately because some of the solution is lost in the nozzle of the syringe and in the needle. Therefore, you may prepare a higher dilution to avoid this. You may do this in the following way:

    After mixing 10 cc of bacteriostatic water to your HCG vial, withdraw 5 cc and inject it into a sterile empty rubber-capped vial then add 5 cc of bacteriostatic water to each vial. This will now give us 10 cc of HCG solution in each bottle. With this dilution, 125 IU is contained in 0.5 cc of solution. This is now conducive to be injected with an ordinary 1 cc syringe.

    Otherwise, if your supplier provided you with an insulin syringe instead of an ordinary 1 cc syringe, you won’t have to prepare a higher dilution.

    To inject 125 IU using your dilution of 5,000 IU of HCG in 10 mL of bacteriostatic water, you need 0.25 cc of the solution. Insulin syringes are calibrated by Units. Take note of the type of insulin syringe you have. Some insulin syringes are calibrated into 100-units per 1 mL while others are calibrated into 40-units per 1 mL. To be able to know how many units on the insulin syringe you need to administer, just remember the following:

    • In a 100-unit calibration, each unit is equivalent to 0.01 mL (1 mL divided by 100 units is equal to 0.01 mL)
    • In a 40-unit calibration, each unit is equivalent to 0.025 mL (1 mL divided by 40 units is equivalent to 0.025 mL)

    Therefore, for 0.25 cc of solution, aspirate up to the 25 units line on the 100-unit insulin syringe, or up to the 10 units line on the 40-unit insulin syringe.

    Uh-oh. This diet actually needs math skills?? I see a lot of numbers here. *scared*
