Hey guys I need help interpreting my blood work. Ive been running cycles regularly for 4 years. Never gotten my blood work done… I know I know, thats stupid but it is what it is. Anyways heres what I am currently on
250mg Test E per week
300mg Eq Per week
300mg Deca per week
.5mg Arimidex ED
1mg caber 2x per week
Ive been on this for 4 or 5 weeks. Before that I was running 250mg of Test per week for 12 weeks with arimidex.
The levels that Id like help understanding are
LH - <.2
FSH - <.2
AST - 46
ALT - 55
Test Serum - 1500
Estradiol - <5.0
Is my LH and FSH going to be that low no matter what because I’m substituting my natural production for a synthetic in which turn my body stops producing the LH and FSH? What about fertility? AST and ALT have are measures of the liver and kidneys I believe. How do I get them to go down? Been taking milk thistle. Also I was going to try .5mg Arimidex eod to raise my estrogen back into normal levels. Any help would be great! Thanks!
I inject Monday and Thursdays. My bloodwork was done about 12 hours after my last injection. Thats good to know milk thistle is garbage lol. I forgot to mention I have been taking 50mg of proviron ED for the same length as all my other compounds but I am switching to 20mg of turinabol ED soon. Ranges are as follows
LH - <.2 1.7-8,6 mIU/mL
FSH - <.2 1.5-12.4 mIU/mL
AST - 46 0-40 IU/L
ALT - 55 0-44 IU/L
Test Serum - 1500 264-916 ng/dL
Estradiol - <5.0 7.6-42.6pg/Ml
How about cut the orals, up your h2o and add some pure cranberry juice that’s cut with water John Meadows has a video on it or a article. Can’t remember. It’s definitely a life saver. Also Bio Curcumin, NAC, and b vitamin. Usually your levels will be elevated with stress or drinking. Cut back on the sauce if you indulge.
If you’re lifting regularly your alt and ast are fine. Mine is constantly near yours because I’m constantly lifting. Read this:
There was no point in testing LH or fsh because you’re definitely shut down. Those numbers validate this. The only thing you should address is your low e2. 0.5 mg adex every day? Back off to 0.25 every other day.
Look into sulforophane if interested in liver health.
Good shit thank you. Yes I’m at the gym training hard everyday. I’ll try .25 eod of Adex. Last spring and summer i ran some really heavy cycles and coach had me on 1mg adex ED. Now I’m on my own, definitely glad I’m doing bloods now I️ can be on point.
I have to slightly disagree with the article. Only because I have been training hard for years and I have never had my values above normal. If training is the cause then you are simply not recovering from the stimulation. It’s pretty cut and dry. Also recall he was running 50mgs proviron a day which is on the lower side of toxicity it can still raise values.
ALT and AST don’t really tell you anything about the kidneys just the liver. My ALT is often elevated from training. Nothing concerning about your levels i would just test them again when you are off/cruising and see how they compare.
Yeah LH/FSh will be near zero when on exogenous hormones. Hard to say regarding fertility - it will be reduced maybe infertile but people have had plenty of success getting this back when needed.
You are taking a crazy amount of caber and adex for what you are running. As you can see estrogen is crashed and i promise prolactin will be too. I wouldn’t run any adex or caber for your cycle. Equipoise also has a metabolite that inhibits estrogen and this builds up as the cycle goes on continuing to inhibit aromatase.
in my opinion best thing to do is drop the caber and adex and retest in about 4 weeks and also include lipids and kidney function along with full blood panel. As you have been cycling for a good few years i would expect RBC/HCT/hemoglobin to be high.These tests will give you a good idea of your overall health & heart disease risk. Giving blood would be a good idea. Also check your blood pressure
What about adding caber and adex when i bump my cycle up soon? going to 500 test, 600 eq and 600 deca. My blood pressure is always pretty low. It averaged 80/100 the few times I had it tested during my last cycle of tren which was in august. As for my estrogen and prolactin being “Crashed” what kind of effects should I look for? I feel fine. I get good erections, no trouble maintaining either and my sex drive is high. I don’t have sore joints… Not really sure what other side effects are caused by low E though.
I don’t really have any symptoms with low E either so i have to go by blood work. When you bump your cycle up i would use 0.5 adex eod and no caber unless you have dick issues or elevated prolactin on bloodwork. Caber is really strong and often not needed. You can’t grow as well with really low estrogen either
Have you got a Lipid profile with the blood work?
Mostly looks good but kidneys appear stressed - were you dehydrated for the test? Creatinine can be elevated from exercise but with BUN also elevated it might be worth looking into
No I don’t have a lipid profile. I can’t imagine being dehydrated for the blood test. I drink 1 gallon ED. Could creatine be high from the red meat I eat plus the creatine I take? Ignorant about this. I’m currently eating 7oz of sirloin and 7 oz ground beef ED plus 5mg of creatine.
Were you fasted? Your hct looks good. I thought there was a chance that may be elevated but is not. It also looks like your kidneys are being put to work based on your creatine and bun numbers.
“Urea is made in the liver and passed out of your body in the urine. A BUN test is done to see how well your kidneys are working. If your kidneys are not able to remove urea from the blood normally, your BUN level rises. Heart failure, dehydration, or a diet high in protein can also make your BUN level higher.”
Your alp is slightly low and probably nothing to worry about, but you now have a few markers indicating your liver and kidneys may be in over drive. How’s your diet, specifically regarding combating inflammation and improving gut health?
“Having lower than normal ALP levels in your blood is rare, but can indicate malnutrition, which could be caused by celiac disease or a deficiency in certain vitamins and minerals.”
