First test on my T, it's 175.
Well guys I am new here.
Due to several reasons I just got my T tested along with some other blood work. Family history of thyroid problems led me to want to get it checked among other things.
I can post my full blood work but the hormone tests were limited. Doctor said he wants me to stop taking supplements and come back in a month for a retest. I'm currently stacking Primeval Labs Super Osta (three weeks)(20mg) and Super Cardarine(4 weeks).
Also supplementing with fish oil, creatine, A-AKG, L-Carnitine, glutamine, multivitamin, and NO explode. Current daily intake is about 2000 kcal. 200g protein, 100g carbs, 90g fat. I weight 230@27% body fat, down from about 250 and 32% body fat 2 and a half months ago.
Primary lifting focus is compound lifts to increase strength. Cardio 2x a week. Typical weight session is about 20-25 sets, a 1.5-2 hour workout.
Never used prohormones, anabolics, nothing....just these SARMS for the last few weeks.
I have researched a bit on why my liver values are high and have read that it could be my creatine, the Ostarine, the higher protein diet that I'm not used to, or even just the heavy resistance training. I do go very heavy during my sessions.
39 years old. Depressed, lethargic, poor work performance. Pecker works well still but morning woods and libido seem decreased for a while now. (Long before starting the Ostarine or anything) Erection duration isn't as long as it should be. Luckily she does good, but I feel like she has to work harder than she needs to sometimes.
But here are the bad parts of my blood work.
I've stopped everything but occasional whey, l-Carnidine, and the Super Cardarine. I have been doing great at becoming less obese and much stronger. My clothes fit a lot different just in two months, so I am hesitant to make further changes at this time. But I don't want a destroyed liver either. I would like to start TRT if my T is low. Or at least figure a different option until we have our kids.
Doc said he wants me to stop supps for a month and get retested. I suspect my problems are from the Ostarine or NO-Xplode. Blood proteins look good, creatinine levels are ok. But I don't really get how all this stuff works together and get confused easily trying to figure it out. Doctor wasn't any help other than telling me to get off the whey, aminos and creatine.
The bad values:
Total test: 174ng/dL --range 332-896
Anion gap:13.7 calc --range 6-13
ALT: 115 --range 17-63
BUN: 23 -- range 8-20
ESR: 18 --range 0-10
Others that were high:
AST: 44 --range 10-45
Everything else came back in the normal reference range.
TSH was 2.720, range .45-5.1
FT4 was .9, range .7-1.5
I have other values but don't know what any of this crap really means. If I can offer more info let me know. I didn't get any other hormones tested for this since it was just an exploratory test.
I am under direction to see another doctor for a potential sleep study to investigate what sounds like sleep apnea. Pretty sure I have it.
I was planning on cutting back my protein intake and taking 3-5 days off before going back in in about 3 weeks for more blood work.
I'm trying to figure out exactly what other blood work I need to push for when I go back in.
So if anybody could help point me in the right direction and offer your thoughts on my current lab info it would be greatly appreciated.
