    anyone else hold lots of water when taking HGH. I'm talking about 30+ lb of water weight. I thought the bloat would subside overtime but that's not the case. even when I was on a cut, consuming only 1800 cal and doing lots of cardio, I was still holding 20lb of water weight.
    anyone else has this issue with HGH ?

    5lbs for me at 5iu every morning. Wife says she added a lot, like 4 or 5 pounds. Dad added some also but not sure of weight.

    5lb is nothing compared to 30lb. I guess some people are prone to bloat on GH. I heard someone also bloat on test.

    What was your starting weight? How long have you been on GH?

    If you're using generic GH, thats the problem.

    All of meso members are using Chinese generics and most of them aren't experiencing the same problem.

    I'd like to see your actual daily intake of sodium and potassium as well as water intake.

    Blood pressure and fasted bg also

    Only guy I know who had that problem found out his kidneys weren't functional. He blamed the Chinese growth but think he'd already done the damage with out of control blood pressure for years. The growth is what brought the water weight onto him though. I'll ask him but for some reason it seems like telmisartan helped him with the water.

    You’ve made this false statement a few times now in different threads. What’s up with your personal campaign against generic GH?

    I don't like salty food tbh. my diet isn't high in sodium and my potasium level were normal. my recent bp was 116/70 and I was on a blast (test,var) at the time.
    my fasted bg when I was on 15iu daily was between 85-95

    I tried enalapril which is more potent along with diuretics. they made me drop around 5lb of water.

    So electrolytes may be a bit out of balance, sounds like you don't monitor sodium? If they're off, it Can cause the water retention.

    So during the bloating situation fasted bg was 85-95 and BP was 116/70? How's the edema in your ankles? Is it pitting?

    yeah. my bp is in heathly range even when I'm heavy and on a blast. I don't have edema on my ankles. most of the water is in the muscle so I look a lot fuller. Im pretty sure the bloating isn't caused by sodium. when I was on a caloric deficit for 2 months consuming only 1800 clean cal and losing 2lb of fat per week, I was still holding 20lb of water. my body is just prone to hold water from HGH and some AAS. nandrolone and test(250+) make me bloat although test doesnt bloat me as bad as HGH or nandrolone.

    What’s the dosage you normally take to get this kind of water weight influx? With what GH? And reconstituted at what?

    You mention somewhere in there about 15iu daily but in reference to BG. If you are legitimately pinning 15iu or more of GH daily (more common/exaggerated with generics), I would imagine that you may be holding a lot of water weight... yes 30 pounds may be a little excessive but that is not a low dose of GH either

    I ran 15iu daily for a month at the beginning of the year. I now take 5iu daily. blacktops and godtropin are the only generic brand I used.

    5iu daily split am/pm?
    And when you reconstitute the GH, you do blacks at 15iu per vial and Godtropin at 24iu per vial?
