Have no idea..: Nor would i tell you if i did. That's for the physician who has diagnosed you as needing it, and who will determine the dose, which will be based on other factors than just your weight.

Wouldn't say: If you obtained this legally through a physician for a defined and recorded medical condition they would have provided you with instructions for use. If you obtained this from an alternate source, it may be fake, stolen or just diverted. In any case these make the provider a criminal and user less so but at risk of prosecution.

Probably 0: Human growth hormone (gh) should only be used for gh deficiency or childhood short stature. Even in children who have been on it don't usually continue in adulthood. Unless you have gh deficiency and are under a doctor's care, you should not take this. If you are taking it to bulk up, consider: growth can also = cancer. Google "acromegaly" (gh excess).
