what's the ideal storage temp for HGH and peptides?

Firstly, hi there everyone. I’ve got to say that I’ve been searching for such a thread here not to double thread this forum and I couldn’t find one. If I’m wrong, please redirect this thread there.
So, as the title says, I would really like to discuss about what’s the ideal temperature for storing HGH and peptides? Typically, I am trying to keep this stuff in the fridge only, but we have been getting some visits (pretty frequent) as of late from some family members who really do not need to know what I am doing and it is obvious that questions like *what’s that?* in the fridge would appear (and they are close enough relatives to open up fridge without asking. I’ve been thinking where else I might keep them except for our fridge and I found out that there are little beer fridges which perfectly fits our bedroom. Doing some research online I found out there are silent electronic and compact fridges and I thought I should get myself one. They are small enough to fit in a drawer or a bookshelf (I suppose they are usually for trips). Only problem is: they are not powerful enough as much as it seems. Usually, our food fridge keeps 40 deg. F cool (that’s around 4.4 – 5 C for those who don’t understand) while this little compact fridge lowest cool temp is 50 deg. F (which is around 10 C) and that might be quite a problem as much as I can understand.
What I’m trying to ask is: is there anyone who know with certitude… is reconstituted GH or peptides going to degrade much faster at 50 F (10 C) compared to 40 F (4 – 5 C)?
Thanks, would like to know if there’s anyone who has ever kept their stuff in 50 F and if you saw some differences?October 16, 2018 at 9:20 am #4075KermanParticipant
Well, if you’re going to check the pharmaceutical package in which your GH comes, you’re going to see that most of them are calling for a storage temperature of 36-46 degrees which means that obviously, if it’s kept in a temperature higher than that, it would have a shorter shelf life. Saying that your little fridge can’t cool enough to 40 F then I personally wouldn’t use a fridge like this, but then again, that’s just something I personally wouldn’t do, not trying to say that you shouldn’t do it either. I seriously think that that the temp swings would be pretty significant to my opinion and generally, the method of cooling most likely pretty crude.October 16, 2018 at 10:06 am #4076J0EParticipant
Of course I’m not sure what’s your budget for the fridge, however I recommend you to look up on amazon as there you’re going to find a fridge that might fit your needs. It costs 120 USD and it can cool down to 40 F deg. But then again, if you are looking for something cheaper, then I am not very sure what I can help you with. Look up for Klarstein Secret Hiding Place Silver Minibar Compact Cooler 0.6 Cubit Ft Single door quiet operation adjustable temperature (from 40 to 59 deg. F by the way). I’ve got myself one so my children/ wife won’t accidentally do something with them. got myself a thermometer just to check if it indeed cools it down enough – that’s true. 40 F. and it perfectly fits in my bedroom. Hope this helps.October 16, 2018 at 10:23 am #4078RuckmanParticipant
I also found little fridges but I found out review that those little freaks are loud and they can’t ever be turned off (the sound) unless you want to turn them off completely. I would really like to get such a little stuff myself but I’m pretty afraid.October 18, 2018 at 6:53 am #4079MapleBParticipant

Well, indeed, some of them might be really loud, but the really small ones are electronic and since they are electronic – they are completely silent. Pretty much like electronic cars – no sound.
Also, wanted to say a big thank you everyone for your help and responses. I did have found out the recommended temperatures fridges soon after posting my first post. That’s the problem when you’re getting old. I just can guess that I am going to need to get myself something bigger if I want to find a place to put it in. now I’m thinking… maybe I only need to tell everybody that I’m having diabetes and it is insulin? But I’m afraid more questions will be asked 😀October 18, 2018 at 8:20 am #4083KermanParticipant
Well, I’ve just put my GH at the back of the deli meat drawer and even if there are going to be some people that I don’t want to know about my stuff then I doubt they would ever find them. you never know if people are going to be noisy, however you would really need to dig to even try to see what is in the boxes.
Plus to that, as much as I know, those little drink coolers tend to work the best way when they are being full and are having something inside of them like a can of beer or soda inside due to the fact that they are helping to stabilize the temperature. I think that you can probably find quite a pretty cheap mini fridge on craigslist which is going to hold up the temperature well.
Honestly, I’m not actually very sure what method is being used in order to cool the fridge, however I can guess that it is a type of cold rail.
About the diabetic idea… I’ve got to say that I seriously like it, but I thought that you might also tell them that you’re a heroin addict, perhaps. You might leave syringes all over there and some burnt spoons everywhere and just tell everybody that they should stop telling you how to live your life.October 18, 2018 at 11:02 am #4084J0EParticipant
Lol, I have serious doubts that this method will work.
Just trust me, it simply doesn’t work like that 😀
