hdrol and cholesterol
From what I understand, hdrol doesn't have a bad cholesterol profile like mdrol and some of the others. This is probably my biggest concern with PHs. I was on a statin about a year ago because of elevated cholesterol, and it's now in a good range. I know everyone reacts differently, but has anyone ever seen their cholesterol levels jump significantly with hdrol? I'm thinking about going back on the statin regardless, just because I tolerated it so well and studies have shown they're very safe and effective for long term use. Just wondering what others have experienced regarding hdrol and cholesterol. Would the statin affect hdrol effectiveness in any way? What about Epi?

Epistane will effect Chol. levels to an extent. Even 3rd week PCT I had LOW (good Cholesterol) but my bad Cholesterol was in check. Superdrol will definately effect the levels but everyone reacts differently. Make sure to pre-load Hawthorne Berry & Milk Thistle. Actually if your goin' M-Drol I'd spend the extra few bucks and buy AI Cycle support. That will cover everything. Cheers, angel77

Any oral steroid will affect blood lipids. Some more or less than others. Just keep a check on it and make sure you do a proper pct to get them back in line. And if you can get blood test to confirm them, it is better.

Well, statins can be potentially liver toxic, and oral steroids are liver toxic. Bad combo IMO.

use cycle support i believe it has red yeast in it which helps. Use nolva in pct it has a positive effect on cholesterol. I got a blood test after my epi pct and my cholesterol came back as very healthy. I believe hdl was like 95 ldl low 40's

Thanks for the info Pem (and everyone else). I think I'll run the cycle and pct, then jump back on the statin for awhile instead of running them concurrently. Do you recall what your ldl/hdl was before the cycle? Neither seem to be really that bad, but I don't know where you started from. Your other panels look spot on.
At least I know I respond very well to the statin, so I wouldn't think a short term increase in chol levels would be too much of a problem before getting them back in a good range.
Thanks again bro!

While you're on your cycle, try to stick to cleaner protein like chicken and fish to avoid extra cholesterol in your diet.

Make sure the turkey isn't that packaged sandwich meat kind. That stuff is packed with nitrates. Get real deli turkey.
