    just found out that quest diagnostic reports an actual ng/dl even when you are high unlike lab corp, is there any other site that offers private results from quest ?

    I dont see how needing to know what exactly ur test levels are after 1500 is necessary. Pretty much anyone on 200+mg/week of Test is gonna read that high or higher. And honestly, what does it matter? U obviously know ur doing well at that level lol.

    We did extensive blood work with volunteers and had all their bloods documented and then had the same volunteers go through the ANDROstat program. Some people were within 2-3 ng/dl , while others were within 30-60 ng/dl........that is pretty damn cool to be able to get a fairly accurate ballpark range figure without having to get pints of blood taken from you and play and pay the waiting game for results.
    Sounds good. How many volunteers were used? So this determines what a certain persons normal values should be? Your'e still going to pay for labwork to figure hdl, ldl, Estadiol, liver enzymes etc. and of course test levels on cycle.

    Edit: just saw fueled passions post. my concerns were basically the same so nevermind

    I want to get tested to see my test levels most importantly but still running nolva for pct 20/20/10/10 with one week to go. How soon after finishing up pct would you recommend getting tested to find out normals values. Would I still need to wait the amount of time on cycle + pct = amount of time off sort of deal to find normal values? Or could I do it much sooner to get a pretty good idea of where I'm at?

    I live in KY and lab work has assigned by and returned to a physician--not to individuals...does this not matter when using the website?

    This is cool but I'm sorry only bloodwork can confirm this. Also it does not take into account recovery from a cycle as in, did you do an adequate PCT and have you completely bounced back?

    Quick question. Do I actually need to fast for the tests on this panel? I want to go in today instead of tomorrow morning.

    Question guys: I am on the part of the form where I input my billing information. On the bottom of the page it asks for my sex. Do I put female at this part because it is a female test and then check male when I get to labcorp? Or do I click male on this part of the page? I am not sure if the system will accept that I am saying I want a female test for a male individual. I do not know if I click male when I pay or say male at the date I get my blood drawn?

    My Experience


    I went and got this Labwork done. Coincidentally I saw my doctor and he wanted me to get labwork done through quest. The results were both low.

    Labquest results (tuesday): 396 (range of 348 - 1197)
    Quest results (wednesday): 282 (range 250 - 1100)

    Kind of interesting the differences but the scale is somewhat different.

    Thank you to the OP for this incredible information. I just had my bloodwork done. I'm a 49 year old male. I am at the end of a 6 week cycle. I started with 2 halotest 25 a day for 4 weeks, in the 3rd week, I overlapped and started 20 mg epistane . The last 2 weeks I've been on just epistane 40 mg daily.

    First question: I noticed nobody tapers off their PH's like we did with AAS years ago. Why is that? Do you just stop at your current dosage and start PCT?

    Second question: Here's my lab work: Obviously my liver function tests are high and I'm concerned. SGOT is 58, SGPT is 56. Serum testosterone is 59! My test was 800 last year. Don't have a baseline for the liver function tests. I had the female hormone profile done and can provide the other results if needed. I'm concerned about the liver function tests. I'm at the end of my cycle and was planning on a taper of the epistane lowering the dose 10 mg every other day for the next week. I feel absolutely fantastic, no lethargy, jaundice or anything like that. I got really strong on this cycle and grew a little bit. I was dieting so I didn't bulk up. I got some acne on my scalp and back which I haven't had since my AAS use 20 years ago so I know this stuff is the real deal. I have been taking NOW liver support the entire time while on this stuff. It contains a host of items including milk thistle. Should I just stop the epistane now or do the taper?

    For PCT I have Powerlab Post Cycle II. I looked into the research labs that sell nolvadex liquid but I just don't know about that. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    For Epi at 40mg a day I would suggest a SERM. Clomid, Nolva, Torem. I don't taper my PH, I just start my SERM the next night. Research for my rats has served me well. If you don't have one, it will be a difficult PCT for you.

    Were you on the right website? It's not the Labcorp website, it's privatemdlabs.com. Click on "all tests" on the left side, then scroll down to "hormone panel for females."

    You register and pay for your bloodwork at privatemdlabs.com, then go to Labcorp for the actual blood test.

    I want primarily to asses Liver function. The others take a backseat when it comes to your Liver. This female test assesses everything to do with Liver Enzymes/function/etc? Thanks.

    I don't get it. What good is getting the bloodwork done if we won't know how to interpret the results and what necessary changes must be made based on the results? Do they send that info with the results? Do you just check with your doctor if one of the measured hormones is out of range?

    Post your results in the over 35 section and you'll have some fantastic professional level interpretation done by the long time members who hang out there.
