50% dextrose

Post by Michaelhamilton » Fri Jul 20, 2018 2:50 am

So i read that 30% dextrose swells up to about 10 times the volume. I thought this sounded awesome because i could quickly inject 100ml into my scrotum and then enjoy the swelling all day. I was looking for 30% but didnot find it. I did find this 50% though.

It says its sterile but also says its for cattle...do you think its safe for humans? Do you think 50ml would be safe to inject?

NO :!: Don't do this :!:

Every concentration over 10% is dangerous. I've tried several times 100 ml 50% in an already with saline prefilled scrotum and it went every time wrong. I still have a lump around the last injection side. Do me (and yourself) a favour and forget this idea.

And this is why we ask questions. Learn from other peoples mistakes. Thanks for the advice.

It was good of you to post this question. We see inquiries about D50 (50% dex) solutions once or twice a year.

Like the other reply said It is WAY too concentrated to infuse directly, even into an area that already has fluid infused.
