Hey guys, check this out. background before test was done. 8 weeks of test 400mg a week ( split into 2 injections), .5 adex EOD, and HCG 250 IU EOD.
my test looks way too high as well as cholesterol, and the LH and FSh look off, but im not sure. i am going to lower dose to 200mg a week i think. and drop the adex dose to .25. is my test levels too high as well? Funny thing is that this is supposed to be TRT, but my levels seem way too high.
cholesterol serum: 190 mg/dl
estradial: 53 pg/ml
triglycerides serum: 64 mg/dl
HDL: 34 mg/dl
LDL: 143 mg/dl
FSH: .70 miu/ml
LH: .2 miu/ml
total test: 2753 ng/dl

Depending upon the lab you use the high level of total test can be 800 and in some cases as high as 1100. For most 200mg will put you at or above 1100.
So to use 400mg and find yourself at 2700 should come as no surprise. An entry level steroid cycle of testosterone is 400-500mg a week and that is what you are doing.

Donating blood will lower your hematocrit and other RBC numbers. I'm a double red donor. Once every 12 weeks.

I might be wrong but it would seem reasonable to me that if he were concerned about values that were at the high end of the normal range and he was doing 400mg of testosterone per week that the first course of action would be to reduce the testosterone dose to clinical values before investing hundreds of dollars in blood work, who's values may also be skewed by 400mg of testosterone per week. I dunno.

everything was ok before the test therapy (or cycle as some of u say)
The main reason for the cholesterol is the ****ty hi fat diet i was on, not the test. i had semi high cholesterol before touching any test. the only things that are provbably test related is the RBC and Hemoglobin, and LH FSH ( due to expired HCG is my guess).
my doseage will be lowered though...
