Test Levels with Novadex!?


#1

I am 20 yrs old and i had my test levels checked before i took novadex and they were in the 600 range..3 weeks into novadex on 4 pills a day it is now 1888..my doctor said its way to high and i should cut back, but is there any health issues with it being that high? k thanks

Novedex XT, the supp you are taking (not nolvadex), results artificially high levels. The test recognized a substance as Testosterone that actually isn’t testosterone. Someone wrote an article about it once (not a T nation article, you can try google to find it).

I’m not saying Novedex XT is safe to take (it may be and probably is but I really have no idea), but even if you did have T levels that high there wouldn’t be any problems besides the side effects that come with uneducated exogeneous hormone administration. But you don’t have to worry about that because you are being ripped off :wink:

And you’re taking it all because…?

Lol no, blood tests, saliva tests, whatever are not ‘crap’ for measuring T levels.

They just dont pick up the difference between legitimately high T levels and the ‘false positive’ that results from a substance specifically put in Novedex XT by Gaspari to ellicit that exact result.
