Blood work help, post SD cycle.
Hey guys, long time lurker and first time poster. My roommates told me about this site and I decided to do a SD cycle some months back. I did a 4 week 10/20/20/20 split and made awesome gains off it. I did a successful PCT with novladex/clomid. I just recently had blood work run, it seems very odd that these things are out of wack 3+ months later?
Some of the stuff on my bloodwork tested on 12/5/05
Chol/HDL ratio 1.8
LDL/HDL Ratio .8
I'm glad to see my PCT was successful,...and now for what has me pretty sketch my blood pressure is 140/80, while not terrible it seems pretty high for months later.
I'm going back to have more blood work drawn in a few weeks.
I've been running Hawthorne Berry, Celery Seed, Sesamin, fish oils as part of my daily regime. On PCT I also used RYR/COQ10. Sorry if it sounds like i'm freaking out, just trying to stay safe.

Very strange on the trigs. Unless you were workout free for a few days the ast/ alt are not very reliable. Next time you check for liver function include GGT as it is a better indicator since it is an enzyme found primarily in liver tissue.

I had a quick look around and can't find much on low trigs??
You cholesterol numbers are excellant, and test is good too!
Agree with Jonny 21 your ALT could be elevated if you had worked out the day before.

Normal: Less than 150 mg/dL
Borderline High: 150-199 mg/dL
High: 200-499 mg/dL
Very High: 500 mg/dL or above
What abnormal results mean
High triglyceride levels may be associated with a higher risk for heart disease and stroke. This is especially true because people with high triglycerides often have other conditions, such as diabetes and obesity, that increase the likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease.
High triglyceride levels may indicate:
Familial hyperlipoproteinemia (rare)
Low protein in diet and high carbohydrates
Poorly controlled diabetes
Low levels may indicate:
Malabsorption syndrome (inadequate absorption of nutrients in the intestinal tract)
Low fat diet

by the way, good luck as Im betting on a "Low fat diet"....if thats your current position.

Intresting, i'm not really on a low fat diet. I eat lean cuts of meat and get lots of flax/fish/sensamin. I trained boxing and wrestling for a long, I still box often for cardio purposes. I'm guessing that is why my lipids are in decent shape. Now I just have to fix my stubborn blood pressure.

Trig. are elevated substantially with high carb/processed sugar intake over a prolonged period. It's all about how the body packages and delievers them via VLDL synthesis. Are you own a low to moderate carb diet? I had blood work done at the end of a low carb diet and my trigs where around 22.

Actually i'm eatting everything in site , My diet is high protein, high carb, mod/low fat. Eventually I will start cutting, but i'm afraid to start another cycle till I get everything in check.
