I am 5'2" and weigh 164 lbs.... I would like to lose 40 lbs maybe 45 lbs would be even better. However, I am confused on the units of measure. I know you inject using the fine needle like a diabetic who gives insulin would. But how much do I give myself each day with one day a week break from injection to achieve my goal? And this would ONLY be for ONE round. I would be willing to do 2 rounds, however, I would love just to do one. And I would follow the strict diet of Dr. S too! Please help! Is 1.0 ml the same as 1.0 cc? And what is 100 units, 60 units, 35 units? It thought it was all ml/cc on the syringe? Thanks!
Simeons had almost everyone on 125 units a day. We generally start at 150 units a day. On an insulin syringe that is .125 or .15 ml. They don't usually say the point on there. If you get the insulin syringes that go up to 3 or 5 ml and have a marking for 15, that is the one we use. Ml and cc are pretty much the same.
