1st Time Post---Novedex XT/ATD Blood Work

  1. 1st Time Post---Novedex XT/ATD Blood Work


    Hey guys,

    To make a long story short, I basically got labs done on 8/28/09 that showed Total T=397 ng/dl. On 9/20, I got another lab done that showed Total T=660 ng/dl. I called endo's nurse and told them that I had taken Novedex XT for 2 weeks (2 capsules per night) but had discontinued 2 days before the test. Now I'm on Sustain Alpha (5 on, 2 off).

    Question:
    Isn't there a study done in the 70's that shows that ATD causes a false elevation in blood serum testosterone levels? I remember reading in a forum where someone had posted a study done on rats?


  2. yea i also read a story similar to that, there is a specific test that you can do that shows your true test levels not all of the atd metabolites which appear to give u a high boost in test

  3. What were free T levels at? Total T can be misleading due to SHBG binding in the body

    Sustain Alpha is back!

  4. if you're trying to get a normalized level I don't know why you wouldn't stop your supplements for at least a month before? most SERMS and AIs will give you useless test readings

    ATD converts to 1,4,6 test metabolites which cause false elevations in test.
