HDL Cholesterol Low

Hi my HDL comes in at 37 when norm range is greater than 39. Now Ive read on the steroid boards that certain AAS mess with cholesterol, but would regular TRT therapy have anything to do with it? Im not worried, doc doesnt seem worried, but if its not optimal Id like to do what I can to make it “better”.

Niacin is generally considered good for raising HDL and lower LDL.


Just something to think about.

My HDL cholesterol was also on the low end but still in range just. Doctor said it is because of my Hypothyroidism.

When was the last time you had your TSH values checked, as it could be metabolic?

Same labs, TSH is 1.610…range is .450-4.50

Whats TSH? I dont even know what it is…Im on one grain thyroid armor a day…
