I went for my yearly physical last weekend and had bloodwork done as well.
Got my results in yesterday - everything was fine except my cholesterol seemed out of whack.
My levels (off the top of my head) were like:
HDL - 1.01
LDL - 3.20
Total - 4.86
THe wierd thing was that I've NEVER used any ph's or AAS in my life! The last supp I used a month and a half ago was CEE, aside from the regular whey, miccellar, AST's multi, sylimarin (Milk Thistle), and L-Tyr.
Now imagine I went to use some of the SD I've got stashed away..I may have been ****ed royally, seeing the blood results of CEdeoudes and a couple of other guys!
Anyways, I doc said no big deal yet - just start some niacin. Lucky thing, I had a few bottles stashed away (for during my ph cycles I was planning towards the end of the year)..I popped one open and started it this morning along with Syntrax's Guggulbolic Extreme (also stashed)
Again, the doc said no big deal - but just coming across these numbers prompted me to post this here as a lot of bro's aren't getting regular pre-cycle bloodwork done and for the sake of putting on size and strength, they may end up causing major problems later on. I will still do my cycle, however once I get my HDL way up and balance my cholesterol - I will have to re-evaluate my plan of attack and maybe postpone my cycle to later than I wanted to.
FWIW, I thought I'd share.
