I was taking four pills a day (2 in am + 2 in pm) for about 40 days when I had blood work done. The following info is what it is. I know there weren't any parameters put in place for a true scientific test, but I have to give the members this info and let them come to their own conclusions.
First off, I did not have blood work done before I started my cycle. Second, I took DHEA but only for the first two days of the cycle. Third, my nutritional and exercise habits weren't Jim Jupiter but they wern't Al Bundy either. I wasn't getting 40g of protein every 3 hours, but I wasn't eating junk food either. That all being said, here's my blood test results:
TOTAL TEST = 364 (range 262-1593)
FREE TEST = 2.69 (range 3.8-34.17)
The free test is so low that the Dr gave me a sample of Axiron testosterone topical solution, which he wants me to take for 30 days and have my blood tested again.
So that's it. Those are my numbers. I understand that I don't have any numbers from before the cycle. I admit that my health habits have not been exemplary. I even admit that I thought my body was responding better to my workouts than pre-cycle. But the numbers speak for themselves as far as what Triazole has done for me. Could it be something in my genetic makeup? Maybe. Could it be that I had even lower test before the cycle? Highly doubtful.
It's also worth mentioning that my sexual ability was poor and desire was low during my cycle. I wasn't (and still am not) ready to necessarliy blame that on Triazole, as I have had desire problems for several years, and bad sex always occurs when I force myself to engage without the proper level of desire. However it is worth mentioning, because even if it was just my regular period of low desire, Triazole sure as hell didn't make it any better.
So I'm just putting that out there. Some people swear by the stuff, but it wasn't for me. I just figured I'd give members my take on it and let them make up their own minds about taking it. I don't think I have anything to add but am willing to answer any questions.
