Long time lurker, in the pharma and 5/3/1 categories mostly, although I follow a different routine now. 45 y o around 225 for 5ft11.Curious to read some of the posters’ input on the following :
T ook bloods on the 15th day of a 500/550mg a week test prop cycle. First time I inject test in 20 years, also using HGH at 4iu per day but have been doing so for 1 year, bar when traveling. Started using Aromasin 12.5mg eod on day 5 as it was obvious E2 and Prolactin went wild, but it is now obviously not enough, although side effects went down already. The more notable results are :
test : over 1600, it is a capped test
E2 : 72
Thinking of doubling the Asin to 12.5 ed and add Prami at 25mg e3d but afraid it won’t be enough.
Surprised about the following :
HCT : 47% it actually went slightly down… that’s good news as the rules here only allow to give 400ml blood every 90 days, got 4 weeks more to wait.
WBC : 9.85 , slightly over normal range.
Lymphocytes, and Monocytes are both above the range, monocytes have been slightly high since doing blood tests regularly about 1 year ago but this time was worse, procalcitonin is also just above the normal range:
WBC : 9.85
LYnumber : 3.44
MO% : 11
MO number : 1.08 (the range is 0.10 to 0.60)
A bigger surprise even are liver enzymes results, they had been in the lower half of the normal range but while only test prop has been added (along Pycnogenol and gingko biloba supplementation), they are now a bit above range. I thought Test Prop wouldn’t impact them :
ALT : 54
AST : 47.9 Both values were at 24 in December
GGT : 15.1
I was out of Liv 2 and replaced it until today with another liver protection supplement but doubt it changed much if anything.
Any feedback will be welcome :
Does doubling Asin and add prami sounds like a good idea ?
Shall I start to worry about Monocytes ?
Wtf is going on with liver ? I was planning to start cruising around 150/170mg test prop or the equivalent in test undecanoate, both available otc here, after this cycle before getting hopefully to doctor prescribed TRT when moving to Spain this summer, but don’t want to hammer my liver either.
Thanks in advance and good lifting!
