I’ve been doing some research on MK-677, seems like a lot of people are getting good results in 1) steady increases in strength 2) better quality sleep 3) no impact on my junk (most attractive!).
My one concern is what it could do to my insulin, I really don’t want diabetes. So my blood work is as follows:
Hemoglobin A1C 5.4
<5.7% consistent with absence of diabetes
5.7-6.4% - consistent with increased risk for diabetes (prediabetes)
=6.5% consistent with diabetes
Now, this was taken in my last physical (late June). Because NYC has been on lockdown and I’ve been eating all healthy foods, cooked by my wife, I’ve went from 209 -> 193 so I’m going to guess if anything the figure is lower. I also have heavy dumbells and an adjustable bench, so I’ve continued to lift 4 days a week (upper/lower split) albeit I can’t really do max effort work, so I’m working on maintaining muscle mass which seems to be working.
Does anyone have an opinion on whether or not I have enough wiggle room to take MK-677? I was thinking of taking this 2-3 months maximum, starting with 20mg but then dropping down to 10mg once it gets in my blood.
Alternatively, I already take Indigo-3G - could I perhaps take this twice a day to ensure this stays in check? I already take a lot of curcumin daily as well which I’ve read is good for helping prevent diabetes.
Thanks in advance guys!
