    i'm just posting because i just purchased some endoamp myself and don't know the answer.

    i would guess it probably dosen't matter.
    although as an anticort it might be best on an empty stomach when cort levels rise.

    hopefully someone from pp will show up.

    Probably best with an insulinemic meal or whey protein shake that will help shuttle PS to the cells.

    Don't you want PS to get to the testes, though?

    So insulin shuttles nutrients to the testes as well as muscular tissue? (Runs out to get 2-liter of Coke.)

    Well… yeah… there is no testicular specific insulin that I know of….

    Insulin is the master storage hormone… shuttles ingredients everywhere.

    I just thought that insulin mainly shuttled glucose to muscle or adipose tissue, neither of which comprises much of the testicular mass.

    Insulin shuttles amino acids, fats, and glucose to every cell in the body.

    Could this be a(nother) reason to avoid ketogenic diets?

    Ha, not even.

    Ketogenic diets preserve the sensitivity to insulin, so you need less insulin to get the job done.

    Hey Pp....Not being a chemist or close to....can you suggest what might be a viable "insulinemic meal" or "whey protein shake" (what is a "whey protein shake?). Sorry for being so dumb...but I am learning off the forum given specialists dont help me fix my health.

    (enters door of Endo/Uro office....ok...clock starts....asks question....clock stops....Endo/Uro stands and opens door and points toward reception who has the invoice ready....and its "next" patient called" Clock stopped at 3 minutes. Well thats an improvement on last time patient thinks. Last time I didnt last half as long. Didnt even have enough time last time to ask a question. Scratches head...just wished he had answered the question I managed to get in this time. Door shuts. Time to payup.)

    A whey protein shake is just a protein shake with whey protein… you never seen whey protein before? It’s probably the single most popular protein available on the market and found in almost all protein drinks.

    Generally, an insulinemic meal is anything that digests very fast… such as high carbohydrate foods.

    My diet simply does not ever have a time without high fiber in every meal so its hard.

    Honestly... Every meal I eat has fiber haha eccept post workout and thats always when I take one of my doses.

    I don't have any solid evidence to support this so it is far from a fact... Just something I heard.

    Phospholipid Complex 1600gm - Phosphatidylserine 800mg -Phosphatidylcholine 154mg - Phosphatidylethanolamine 128mg -

    Phosphatidylinositol 68mg = 1150mg so im still missing 450mg what are they? lipids!

    Metformin (Glucophage) is utilized in type 2 diabetics specifically due to its primary method of action. It helps decrease serum glucose levels by intervening with the process of hepatic glucose production called hepatic gluconeogenesis. Type 2 diabetics often have 3-4x the norm of gluconeogenesis taking place within the liver which has the potential to cause significant increases in serum blood glucose levels. If left untreated, a medical emergent situation can ensue.

    Metformin will also cause some enhanced insulin sensitivity systemically, but its primary focus of use is as i've stated above.

    I don't encourage people to mess with medications of this nature in general. These type of medications can be very dangerous, and most certainly deadly in some cases. Metformin is especially of concern in people with renal insuffiency. It can contribute to further the development of lactic acidosis which can in turn become a major metabolic concern.

    Impaired renal clearance of the drug will also significantly enhance its half-life and subsequent pharmacological effects. Unless you're specifically prescribed something like metformin to treat a medical condition of diabetic etiology, steer clear of it.

    No problem, Piston. People utilizing antidiabetic prescription meds (not used to control diabetes) are playing with fire in the end. There are many serious risk factors of these meds that conveniently fall through the cracks when being advertised to the general public.

    I think many people just don't realize how potent of an endocrine hormone insulin truly is, or they're just plain ignorant to the facts. If you've taken too much, and your bodies compensatory mechanisms fail and can't adequately stabilize your serum blood glucose level, you can put yourself in a very serious medical situation that can easily lead to death. I personally don't encourage anyone to use medications of this nature unless specifically prescribed.

    I was planning on taking it post workout with a whey/carb shake then take it in the morning on non lift days in a plain whey shake?

    ...

    but after this post maybe i should just take it with whey alone (between meals) before bed on lift days and hour or so after bfast on non lift days?


    Thanks.
