Hi everyone, I’m thinking about cycling in the future so I got some blood work done just to have a reference if I ever need to check where my natural levels were. I’m 24, 5ft 9 ish, and around 160 lbs (weighed in 163 lbs this morning), as far as my bf % goes I’m not sure but given that people tend to underestimate this I would say anywhere between 15 and 20%.
Albumin 44.6 g/L (Range: 35 - 50)
SHBG 38.8 nmol/L (Range: 18.3 - 54.1)
Hormone Phase Men Phase
FSH 3.47 IU/L (Range: 1.5 - 12.4)
LH 5.39 IU/L (Range: 1.7 - 8.6)
Oestradiol 80.2 pmol/L (Range: 41 - 159)
Testosterone 17.6 nmol/L (Range: 8.64 - 29)
Free Testosterone - Calc. 0.331 nmol/L (Range: 0.2 - 0.62)
Free Androgen Index 45.36 Ratio (Range: 24 - 104)
Prolactin 190 mU/L (Range: 86 - 324)
DHEA Sulphate 8.03 umol/L (Range: 5.73 - 13.4)
I have to say that I’m quite disappointed with the results, nothing out of range for sure but levels aren’t gold especially my testosterone levels. I made some decent gains in the gym and always had issues with acne so I was expecting higher testosterone levels as a certain explanation but you never know …
Anyways let me know what you guys think thanks!
