Ok well let me start off by telling you the cycle. I ran M-Drol 20/20/20/20 and PCT was Nolva at 40/30/20. I used Milk Thistle throughout the cycle and PCT. Im 21. I gained 16lb off the cycle and kept 13 after PCT. Im now weighing 186.
So i go to the doctors about a week and a half ago for a check up, and she said that my liver seemed a little enlarged. She asked about my family history again and i told her that on my moms side both my grandparents had bladder cancer and on my dads side there alot of the males had liver problems (uncle had a liver transplant) mostly due to alcohol (dad is an alcoholic). She set me up for a blood test to make sure my liver was alright. She also had my Test levels checked, Cholesterol, Estrogen, and Kidneys. I got the call today from her and she said that my liver enzymes were elevated, Test was pretty low, estrogen was high, and cholesterol was pretty bad.
Im going to be stopping by soon to try and get the exact numbers for everything and post them on here. Also, I am going to the endo tmrw to get checked out because of the results. I am thinking about getting on a ton of liver/kidney supports along with a bunch of natty test boosters. What do you all think about that idea? Also, Which test boosters would you recommend?

You could **** with her and run clomid/nolva so your test shoots up ridiculously haha.
But on a real note, thats your doctor, just be honest. If they investigate your bloodwork under the assumption your NOT taking or have ever taken steroids, they could misread your panel and start treating you for something you do not have.
You can even lie and say you thought it was a supplement, and took nolva after you realized what you took and asked for help on the internet.

yeah doctors have to be confidential, tell the truth, besides it's an OTC product. No big deal, those problems are what one would expect right after coming out of a PCT, it'll take a little longer to stabilize. I think if you did a more comprehensive PCT though your test wouldn't be as low.Mostly answered PM's
Don't post on my profile, I don't read that stuff, PM me instead
<------ Hard to believe, but I wasn't on any anabolics in the avatar shot
06-17-2010, 04:12 PM
Alright thanks for the input. Ill let the endo know tmrw exactly what i was taking. If i can get teh exact numbers today ill put em to see the real damage done lol.

too long on mdrol, too short on PCT. get some clomid and a test booster plus an AI and stay on for 4weeks.

Guess my reply didn't go through, internet timed out... ANYWAY
Problem with taking a nat. test booster is that you won't know your true levels, depending on how long you've been off cycle, if you have a low test count you may want to do something about that.
If you have a family history of liver problems, you should have been taking liver supps on cycle, but now would be a good time.
Doctors do have to be confidential, but they do have to report to insurance companies. As far as saying "off record" I don't think that would hold up, because then the doctor is lying to the insurance saying its something else, meaning they could be sued if the insurance ever found out, a risk a doctor is willing to take? Most likely not.
If I were you, i'd wait it out a bit and see if my levels went back to normal, you do not want to admit to a doctor you did AAS unless you REALLY have it, and saying its something else is a horrible idea because then your being treated for something you don't even have which is a waste of time and money.

Theres a ton more of stuff, just dont really know what it all means/dont feel like writing everything out
06-17-2010, 04:53 PM
Not to mention your AST and ALT are at the top of the normal range.
Your PCT was bunk, has to be. No LH?
06-17-2010, 04:58 PM
For reference your total testosterone would be at the high end range for a 8-9 year old boy. Not joking.
and your SHBG is under the lowest number for a normal range. Estradiol is also in the 8-9 year old boy range.
06-17-2010, 04:59 PM
How long post cycle did you get blood work?
I would also suggest NOT mentioning steroid use. Medical records aren't as "private" as many people think and you should try to avoid being flagged as a "steroid abuser".
06-17-2010, 05:01 PM
my opinion is that this happens ALL THE TIME with superdrol. I believe that very few recover during pct from this compound, even with what we'd all consider to be reasonable pct choices
My opinion is also that your liver enzymes and cholesterol will recover with time, little by little. Mine did.
In regards to the medical records, many good points have been made. Something to consider is that your insurance company probably is not going to be seeing your physician's notes. Probably just the charge sheet or online bill.

I am a firm believe in "damage over time" mechanics. Such as what diet can do to a persons body over years, so too can PH/DS/AAS and they will not know until much later.
In all honesty, PH/DS are not that old and I think the effects of all these users we have had in the last 6 years alone will show up in 10 years and be pretty bad. That being said HRT doesnt seem so horrible. Gives you freedom to cycle after that as much as you want lol
Then again many people use steroids their entire lives and do pretty well. I duno.
06-17-2010, 05:21 PM
Yea i know idk wtf is up with my test levels. I dont feel shutdown or anything.
Nolva was real, Got it from legit Research company.
I dont see LH, would it be under anything else?
Also, What is SHBG?
Im still really nervous about the doctor thing with the insurance companies...Im not looking to mess anything up...especially down the road.
06-17-2010, 05:24 PM
You and me are the same age, and are definitely kids. My unreal superdrol reference was because I told someone not to take SD and unreal said "good more for me".
If this is your attitude, I no longer care, nor wish to provide you help or support with your terrible terrible blood work.
Although i sincerely hope you avoid any acute hepatitis or cirrhosis like you mentioned your family members having in the past.
06-17-2010, 05:26 PM
As for insurance, do as mentioned say its for off the record. Reason this out, why would she mess up you and your insurance when as long as you are her patient and you have insurance she gets a lil ride on the money train for treating you?

So idk what the hell happenedwith the test levels. Im going to talk to the endo tmrw and depending on what he says i might just do a stack of say..
Toco 8 1/1/1/1
IDS Post Cycle Tabs 3/2/2/1 (I have a box laying around)

Even if the nolva was bunk, isn't one month after a SD cycle not enough for the body to reach homeostasis on it's own? I mean is he suppose to have normal test levels by now or something?
06-17-2010, 06:48 PM
06-17-2010, 06:54 PM
Yea then I don't think it's time to panic or tell your doctor anything. This is normal if the nolva was bunk, and if it wasn't, it's still to early to go and tell the doc you were on steroids. Take the recommended supps for now for a few months with occasional blood tests and let your body take care of itself slowly. You're young, your body shouldn't have too much of a tough time doing so.
06-17-2010, 07:05 PM
Run a PCT , get private blood work done, its probably cheaper anyway. when **** is in the normal ranges , then hit up your doctor (that will be in 2 months)
06-17-2010, 07:29 PM
06-17-2010, 07:35 PM
Alright thanks alot everyone for the help. When i saw the test levels i just freaked out lol. The wierd thing is, even with the low test levels i havent been losing any mass, putting on fat, or having any side effects of being shut down. Ill talk to the endo tmrw and prolly order some clomid and Toco8 tmrw as well. (PP is having a huge sale right now, check it all out!)
06-17-2010, 07:53 PM
the blood work could also be a little goofy.
Now also take into account for years body builders did not even use a PCT. Your body can recover from alot, it could just take longer. I would look at Primordial Performances Testosterone Recovery Stack, people seemed to love it, especially the Toco-8. It should be all around healthy and boosting for your body during this time.

2. You probably already know this, but being on HRT doesn't provide license to run whatever AAS you want. Even if you're not running liver toxic orals there are still various health considerations that need to be taken seriously if running anything other than a "maintenance dose" of Testosterone for long periods of time. Often times guys who are on HRT spend about the same amount of time "on" as other guys do and cruise on ~100mg/week in between.
