Blood Test Results; Thoughts?


I recently got a blood test run to see the effect of my recent high protein/fat diet. Anything to be concerned about? My testosterone is on the lower end of the normal range and BUN slightly higher than normal.


Thoughts? Like "WAY TO GO! NO AIDS!"?

Yeah, testosterone is on the low side. If you've been feeling "low testosteroney" maybe you can get further tests for other stuff. And visit the HRT forum.

BUN could, according to the internet, be a sign of a high protein diet. How long have you been eating high protein?

Are you supplementing with creatine? I know that can jack up creatinine measurements (which are in spec on your tests).

Also, did they do tests for cholesterol and stuff? Those always gets tested for me, even if I and donating blood.
