So I’m thinking of getting a private blood test because I’m curious as to how high my testosterone levels are, post cycle (cycles over 250mg/wk for nearly 10 weeks), posting pics tommorow) I’m aiming for a TT of around 1000ng/dl, and I don’t intend to cycle again anytime soon/ possibly ever again given I probably can’t compete given the state of my joints, that and I’m extremely afraid of irreversibly damaging my heart, therefore if I can’t compete what’s the point of using, I can’t see any scenario where the benefits outweigh the risks. However I’m extremely uncomfortable about the notion of going into a private blood test, it isn’t common for people to order private bloods in Aus, so I get have this notion that whoever draws my blood will know something’s off. I’ve opted out of the new healthcare plan which allows people to access my medical records via a database, therefore doctors won’t have my bloods unless they’re specifically requesting them, however I can’t help but feel super paranoid.
Anyone have any imput that could alleviate my anxiety? Has anyone here had any complications with private bloods? What happens if testosterone levels are well over the range, I believe the ref range here cuts off at like 800-900ng/dl. I want to check a myriad of things, such as my lipids, glucose tolerance (because it always sucks), kidney function etc.
Edit: it appears I have to be eighteen for private testing in Aus, can I lie about my age or will I get caught? Do they ask for ID? In America I once lied about my age and got a private test, I was about 15 at the time.
