I recently got contacts and long story short i noticed I had some yellowing in the whites of my eyes. Looked it up found out it was jaundice from elevated billirubin levels. Reading the symptoms I was very nervous went and got a CBC and my billirubin was 2.7 I made an appt with my primary care doc and they sent me to get a ultrasound of my liver and all that. Everything came back clear not so much as a gallstone or anything abnormal was found. Liver enzymes are fine, slightly elevated but I know that is normal due to weight lifting.
I am on Stan Efferdings vertical diet and thought maybe it had to do with the level of meat I was eating so I messaged him and asked him. He said his best guess if liver came back clear is that it was probably due to muscle breakdown and not to worry about it. I am thinking this is probably what it is too due to mainly the fact that when I deload it seems to clear up and my eyes return to white. I also notice on really intense days like when I am squatting and doing strongman events it seems slightly more yellow. Now this is not so yellow that you can see it without being right up close to a mirror which is why I never even noticed it until I got contacts.
The doctor that examined me even said he couldn’t even see any yellow same with the eye doctor so it is very minor but noticable to me when I put in my contacts. Anyone else experience this, think it’s something I should even worry about?
One thing I thought could be a possible reason. My test levels were extremely low at the time (300) I have since started TRT but only been on for a couple months. I Was thinking (and I am no doctor) but I was thinking perhaps it could be that my test was so low my body couldn’t keep up with the training demand I was putting on it. I was at the time working out 7 days a week. Lifting 4 and running the other 3 with no days off.
I have since started training smarter. What do you guys think? I would love some opinions.
