Any thoughts on RUI versus Purity Solutions for ADEX. Purity Solutions ADEX was used and a rash developed. Was wondering if
you have any preference or recommendations.


Got new lab results and was hoping you could take a look when you get a chance. Thanks!!


I went today to donate blood. I did not mention i am on Test HCG and Arimidex.

There was a question on the paper i filled in. It said: Have you ever taken HGH or Gonadotropin? I answered NO.

The question was in my native language (which i am not fluent in). I translated everything now when i came home. Im guessing gonadotropin means HCG.

My question is: Can someone be harmed by taking my blood since i am on HCG, arimidex and Test? If yes, wont they test the blood and find out and not use it and probably ban me?

Thanks for your time

KSman, I am new to this and still learning from all these posts and investigating a kind of best practice for me. Some time ago you told you upped your dose of T to about 175mg/wk. Do you still feel good with that dose? Do you still follow the ratio 1mg AI per 100mg T? Thanks!!

Hi KSman please take pity on me and look at my lab results, even the trolls have forsaken me.

Ksman…need your input please http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_training_performance_bodybuilding_trt/31yr_old_need_trt_advice

KSman, thank you so much for all the great info that you have put together. This has been an invaluable resource for me since I am so new to all of this. I appreciate all of the time you pour into helping others.

Can you look at my labs and stuff? http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_training_performance_bodybuilding_trt/trt_and_me

I just started TRT last week, and I’m still trying to convince my doctor to put me on HCG for fertility. He refused to test my E2, so I’m still working on that with my Primary doctor.

Do you have a list of studies that you send people to talk to their doctors about HCG or AI? I found some, but I am interested in the direction that you normally point new people.

Thanks again!

Posted an update.
Would love some feedback when you have a moment.

KSman… Sincerely appreciate the endless information you provide us all. If you could spend 2 minutes and look at my situation it would mean the world. I’m at rock bottom. I went and got labs earlier this week and would have bet a million dollars my estrogen was hi and I knew exactly what I was going to do. Turns out it came back low and now I’m just even more confused. I hope you can take a peek.

KSman, I have some new results following some of your advice. Can you please let me know your thoughts?

Thank you!

Added the blood work you requested. Any info would be splendid as I am super confused now.


You just posted some great pct info and you mentioned hypothyroidism. I had good thyroid levels and am in the middle of a restart and my TSH has gone up to 4.3. Can a restart cause this?

Also you mentioned doing a SERMs for two weeks. Is that all the longer they are needed for a restart??



Posted up some lab results a few days ago. I would really appreciate your expert opinion and thoughts as to whether I am on the right track. Thanks!! Merry Christmas to everyone!

I need your help brother…give me some 411 PLEASE. Thanks KSMan.

Hey KSMan,

I just updated my log after IR and I was wondering if you could take a look and tell me what you think.


Hi KSman,

I know you are buried under a mountain of requests, but when you get a chance can you take a look ?

Much appreciated.


Hi KSman
I got my total T tested 3 days ago. before that I got it tested 2 years ago. my results (ng/dl) is the same number but the lab reference intervals have changed to from 250-850 to now 348-1198. I do not want to reveal my results but in general does a higher reference interval need to show higher results?. both tests are total tesoterone by labcorp.

side question. if one gains 15 pound and it impacts T levels can weight loss reverse this quickly?

Hey KSman, with all these I really don’t know if I should bother you. But here goes:

Not even how to tag you or the address.

Still waiting on some more labs that I will post mid week when I pick them up.

Thanks in advance


Please take a look at:

This is for my wife. I think I read somewhere you had helped some women in the past.

Thank you!
