@blshaw @lordgains @wanna_be I know you have expressed interest. I got my blood work back. I have had IGF-1 measured 4 times by LabCorp with the results being 103, 114, 117, and 124 ng/mL range of 98-282 ng/mL. The last test was while on testosterone at 150 mg/wk. I have added MK-677 at 7.5 mg/night and upped the testosterone to 200 mg/wk. I got quest blood work, and the range is different (53-331), but my result is 110 ng/mL. I don’t think the range means much, and I don’t think the MK does much for me (please correct me if I am wrong here).
I will say I didn’t sleep all that well the night before, but did sleep probably 5-6 hours. I didn’t drink or exercise the day before.
Looks like I’ll be looking to HGH in the future.
In other news, I am pleased with my TT and FT results of the $19 10 mL 250mg/mL test I bought. TT was 1223 ng/dL.
Gonna need to work on Cholesterol. LDL was 146, HDL was 37. Total Triglycerides were bottom of the range, so I don’t know what that means?
As I was saying pretty terrible.
Sex hormones were about as expected.
Really pleased with liver and kidney labs. I had been concerned with a negative pattern of kidney labs in the past eGFR in 4 tests was 88, 79, 79, 73. This is supposedly a more accurate eGFR (for BBers because it uses cystatin C). GGT is an overall liver score (also happy as previous labs I was borderline). The liver score is actually amazing IMO. I went from being slightly over to on the low end (which is optimal IMO).
I was also pleased with blood values. Again ranges are different, but I am still a ways from the top of range with a TT of 1223 ng/dL.
Prolactin was middle range.
What are your thoughts? Something likely needs to be done on lipids. They are pretty terrible. I will start on fish oil right now. Should I look into red yeast?
