How to Convert HGH IU to Mg


Somatotropin, also known as human growth hormone or simply HGH, is a protein-based hormone that regulates growth within the human body. The hormone is typically used as a medical treatment for endocrine disorders that result in stunted growth in adolescents. Others have also used human growth hormone to enhance athletic performance and as an anti-aging drug. HGH is measured in International Units. When administering HGH, it may be necessary to convert from IU to milligrams. A simple arithmetic calculation provides the appropriate conversion.

  • Determine the dosage of HGH in IU.

  • Multiply the number of IU by 0.333, which is the number of mg in a single IU of HGH. The resulting product is the equivalent dosage in mg.

  • Convert a quantity of HGH in mg back to IU by multiplying the number of mg by 3.
