Should I hold off on the rebound...
I am starting to get worried about the cholesterol getting too high on the Rebound XT. I just went and got a home cholesterol kit and my cholesterol was about 126, which i guess is real good; but it doesn't tell me good and bad cholesterol so I don't know how much that tells me. I wonder how much if any PCT i really need from doing such a short cycle. Maybe just the Milk Thistle and RYR for a while?

Are you going to post any after-cycle pics so we can see the change SD made?
05-13-2005 07:07 AM
Yes I will post some pics....
I will get them up there this weekend. I only made it 2 1/2 weeks but I think it made some difference in definition and strength.

Nice to see other diabetics out there. I am also a type 2 diabetic taking glucophage and Lantus insulin. I am thinking and researching a superdrol cycle.

Hopefully you will have better luck then I did. I was having some nice gains, but my diabetes puts a ton of stress on my organs already and I think it was just too much to handle. I will know more on Tuesday after I get my bloodwork done.
I am a type 1 by the way, and I am on an Insulin Pump, pushing out Humalog insulin. I started having real good gains when I started taking my humalog after my workouts. I don't think Lantus would have the same effects though.

Yeah probably not huh since Lantus is a slow acting insulin at I take once a day in the morning. It is a 24 hour type of insulin. What exactly is that insulin pump?
05-14-2005 01:56 PM
Yeah Lantus is a 24 hour thing, it probably would not help that much.
An insulin pump is a device that has humalog insulin cartridges in it. It has a tube that goes in my stomach. I only have to change locations every 3 days and it gives me a basal insulin all day long. then when I eat I type in the device how many carbs i am having and it gives me the correct amount of insulin. I still have to check my sugar about 4 times a day, but the pump is great. No more shots all the time. Here is a link to more info about it.

Ankle swelling has gone down almost all the way now. I am on my 3rd day of Rebound xt and am headed for blood work on tuesday. I still need to add some pictures but my strengh gains in the bench press for 2 weeks are awsome.
2 1/2 weeks ago 245 x 3 this morning i did 285 x 3 and did 310 x1.
I did 100 lb db x 6.
My squat and deadlift did not go up any because the back pumps were too bad for me to do too much weight.
I was also able to curl 100 lbs (barbell) while keeping my back straight where as before I really had to throw it up.
My Final weight was 216 up 9 lbs from 2 1/2 weeks ago.
I also gained 1/2 inch on my arms. Then: 15 3/4 now 16 1/4
Chest: Then - 45 now 47
Calves: Then 16 now 16 1/2
Thighs: Then 24 now 25 1/2
Stomach Then 37 now 37. (SHould have done more cardio)
I am very pleased with my results and if weren't for the diabetes I think I would have done this cycle again.
Pictures and bloodwork coming soon...

I was wondering how many units u give yourself after u work out and what are your normal dosages throughout the day? Do you take pills too, like glucophage?
05-17-2005 02:45 PM
Depending on what I eat, I have to take 1 unit of Insulin for every 10 carbs I eat. So say I have a 12" Tuna Sub, plus a protien shake, I would take about 10 Units of insulin. My pump gives me 1.1 unit of insulin per hour for my basal rate. I don't take any pills because those help control your insulin, and I don't produce any insulin so it would not do many any good.
BTW - Had my blood work done today, should have results shortly.

When I was on Superdrol and a Frontload of Test Enanthate, My feet and wrists swelled to the point that it was difficult to tie my shoe. I both couldn't bend down that far and had to majorly loosen my shoes. I can see how it might be a worse problem for a diabetic. SuperDrol is such an intense cell volumizer it is ridiculous.

I almost wish I would have stuck it out. Just got nervous. I have been off for a week and my ankles are back to normal. My cholesterol was fine when I tested it so I just think it was a side of the SD that I wasn't aware of.

My Lipid Results...
Here are the results from my lipid blood test about one week after finishing SD and taking 3 Rebound XT per day with some RYR.
Total Cholesterol - 118
Tri - 69
HDL - 22
LDL - 82
HDL/LDL Ration - 3.73
I am really starting to think I may have jumped ship too early. I may give it another go in a month or so, because I was really liking the results. Next time I will up to about 3-5 G of Taurine from the beginning. Pop about 4 RYR per day and maybe get some ProLiver.
Is there anything I can take for the kidneys? Or do you guys think that is needed. Can't be too careful...
05-19-2005 01:37 PM
Sorry if I contributed to the scare... but it would be hard to squat without any feet

No I appreciate you looking out. It actually kind of woke me up a little bit. Being on the pump and in pretty good health I sometimes forget I have Diabetes. Nothing to play around with.
Thanks a ton.

I got my testosterone results back...
Wow, the nurse called today and said that my test. levels were low and the doctor wanted to put me on testoterone replacement shots. I am not sure if this is a good thing or bad thing. I didn't think SD lowered our test. that much, so maybe I already had low test. and didn't know it. I have never been tested before. Here are the results:
Free: 34.4 (47 - 244 normal)
Total: 133 (400-1080 normal for my age, 28)
That seems really low to me. He wants me to take 200 mg every 2 weeks for 2 months, then once a month for 4 months. I can barely read the handwriting but it looks like the prescription is for 1 vial of Depo-Testosterone.?
Any feedback or info would be greatly appreciated.

SD will shut you down just like any other PH/AAS.
05-23-2005 05:39 PM
My advice is to run PCT and do not get injections. You are shut down from SD, but with proper PCT you should rebound.
05-23-2005 07:44 PM
I think everyone who uses SD should start out at 10 mg NO MATTER WHAT. A bottle is way more than enough supply even if the 10mg isn't enough for you, and I seriously doubt there are many out there that 10mg wouldn't have a very positive effect on if diet and training were up to snuff. If you don't respond to 10, chances are you might not be a very good responder at all. Unless you have a lot of AAS experience under your belt, then I can see 20mg, but other than that, I can't see 10mg / day NOT being enough personally.
