Blood Work Review

Hey,

I got blood work done for an overall physical and my doctor said i am in great shape medically.
Quick question though, he said if i was injecting test.
Any reason in these results he would ask that?

TRT increases red blood cells. It’s something that should be monitored on occasion while on TRT, especially when on high doses.

@galgenstrick i read it was never proved, but i guess hey.

Interesting, much apprecaited!

Nothing is really ever proved in science. But there is evidence around it. How strong the evidence is, is hard to tell, maybe another guy with more experience can chime in. We have just barely scratched the surface on studying exogenous testosterone for hormone optimization.
