Question re: IGF testing

I’ve had two friends in the last two weeks test their igf levels using some pretty well known generics. Both were on very different protocols, however one came back oddly low and I’m curious to know if anyone can explain why it might have been.

Person A: 5iu gh daily, bolus dose post workout on gym days, then split in half and taken morning/evening on non workout days. Avg weekly total 35iu

Person A igf - 591

Person B: 2iu every other day, taken in a single bolus dose. Avg weekly total 7iu

Person B igf - 62

I totally recognize why there’d be a disparity there, however a 62 igf seems unnaturally low, even if he wasn’t on any GH. What could explain being on 7iu of gh weekly, albeit at odd intervals, and having such a low score? Both have been on at least 2 months, using the same batch of gh.

what was 2nd persons IGF-1 naturally, at what time did he take it eod & had his levels measured - furthermore, who the hell advised him to take 2iu eod =_=

1. didn’t do a baseline, first mistake
2. He took the 2iu bolus dose after workouts in the early evening, but (again) only every other day...second mistake IMO
3. Whoever his coach is told him to do that, 3rd mistake lol

That really odd scheduling on such a low dose is the first thing I seized on. It’s obviously sorta nonsensical. But I also thought, after 4 months of even a stupid protocol, he should still see some igf increase. And it’s difficult to believe that 62 would be his “enhanced” igf level, unless his baseline was VERY low or the 48 hours between each injection somehow dropped his igf (which I don’t think is possible)

that timing may have surpressed his natural nocturnal GH production, not sure if him having tested it on an on or off day is relevant. stupid people manage to make mistakes we could never imagine, so who knows.
