Blood work results... prior to AM/AH, comments ??
So taking Ryansm advice I got bloodwork done prior to starting AM/AH. I've never had complete bloodwork done before. I have been on Simvastatin for my cholesterol. I've been on this med for at least a couple years... prior to starting it my number was in the 260's, changing diet and being on the meds the number is now down to the 140-171. She is ok with the total number but not happy with the LDL-P and the Small LDL-P number. She had put me on Niacin 500 mg about 6 months ago but it has not had an impact on the results... she is thinking of me doubling it .... here are the numbers ... would be interested in opionions on working on some of the numbers ....

Wow... that took awhile to type ..
LDL-P and Small LDL-P ... have been on Niacin 500mg... thinks she wants to double it to 1000 mg ... says the platelets are too big
LP-IR .... says my kidneys are slightly taxed... more water
BUN .... same thing, kidneys slightly taxed.... more water
Creatinine, Serum .... said concern... didn't really say much about that one
Testosterone and Free Testosterone .... prescribed Tamoxifen 10mg .. 6 months worth. Told her I wouldn't start that till after done with AM/AH ... Tomixifen is Nolva correct ??
TSH ... thryoid .... prescribed Synthroid 25 Mcg ... once a day for 90 days with 3 refills .....
With those numbers.... comments, suggestions ... I appreciate any and all.

Whew, honestly I think you need to see an endo< unless she is one. I am not comfortable with you running the AM/AH bud, sorry to say that, but your health is more important. What did she say about running them?
03-26-2011, 10:34 PM
All she really said was that to get off the Simvastatin 2 weeks prior and wait 1 week after I'm done before going back on. Said she didn't want me to take the Niacin when on.... other than that not much. Obviously she wants me to do blood work again afterwards and will compare.

Well... everything that I've read and heard .... the grapefruit delivery system would be a no no with the statin .... thats why she said to get off of it for that time frame ....
The Niacin... not sure

I would up your fish oil, 6g daily
Up your fiber, 50-60g daily
Red Yeast Rice with CoQ10
Sesamin Oil for your kidneys
For your test id up your fats, saturated too
Best of luck man, id also get your health sorted out before cycling...

why would you bother with ph's to begin with? with test levels like that you can get the real deal very very cheap thru your dr.
unless of course you are coming off a cycle in which case you are not ready to cycle again
03-27-2011, 10:04 AM
no I'm not coming off a cycle. I have been looking for something that is legal and safe. Along comes PP with the Andro Series and that is why I decided to go that route. I've heard nothing but good on their products and the logs that I've seen have been coming in all positive...
I was planning on doing low dose with the AM/AH covering 6 weeks instead of going full dose for the 4.
My thoughts now ??? Not sure, I put alot of weight as to what some of the ppl on this board have to say. They (you) have alot of experience in this area as I do not.
Thanks SweetLou321 for the suggestions... will be working on that now as well ....

As for the T and Free T, as others have mentioned TRT would be helpful. What was E2 levels or Estradiol levels if you have them??
03-27-2011, 01:56 PM
I don't have those figures in the results.... everything I posted is what the print out shows.
I have been doing fish oil Controlled Labs Orange OxiMega ... have been doing a total of 4 grams...as of today I upped it to 6 grams. I'm adding in more fiber and will up my water intake.
If I end up not doing the AM/AH cycle for awhile... would you recommend doing the Nolva as she advised... which is 10 mg a day, like I said she gave me enough for 6 months worth. Then maybe add in PP TRS for a combo ??
03-27-2011, 07:38 PM
to op- if you want safe and legal why wouldnt you go trt route? its a well documented compound, safe at trt dosages, legal and not to knock pp products since i use many of theirs but why use something with a bioequivelancy of test when you can have real test? this is a great option for people who want to stay legal. i dont believe it to be a great option for someone who can attain real test legally.

based on my test numbers..... what type of dosage do you think I should talk with her about getting .... to get it up to an acceptable number... and what would be an acceptable number ??
I'll try and get to talk with her tomorrow or the next day and see what she says about trt ....
also.... I believe I've read that if you start trt.... your pretty much on it forever .... true ... false ???

unless I missed it, the I don't see bluerocket mentioning how old he is, which to me makes a big difference to the "TRT is your best option" answer.
Btw, my testosterone levels last blood draw were something stupid like 2200. day after injection...

Yeah, then HRT/TRT makes more sense than OTC anabolics at least at first. Get figured out if you can whether you are primary or seconday, whether some sort of restart protocol will work, and whether potentially just using HCG would work vs testosterone injections. Once you are stable on all that then adding other things on top based on how you feel about progress you are making body composition wise will work out better.
03-28-2011, 08:48 PM
thanks again guys for the responses.... think I'm going to put off starting AM/AH and try and get a few things dialed in first. I will talk to her about all the things you guys suggested and go from there...
