    is taking AAS with a cholesterol of 6.9 dangerous?


    hi all,

    i have just returned from the doctor where i was given the results of my blood test.. my LDL levels were around 4.3.. overall cholesterol was 6.9.

    now.. this is considered high and i suppose i can understand that my diet is largely to blame for this.... however, i didnt think that 4-5 whole eggs/day, plus mince and red meat would make such a BIG difference.

    my question: do I wait for my cholesterol to go down before starting my cycle??? They say that AAS increases LDL/HDL levels, so I presume that my cycle will just make things worse.

    Would appreciate advice here.

    Cheers
    JC

    If you're asking this question, you can probably answer it.

    Listen to common sense grunt, get the bad numbers down before considering a cycle.

    Yeah since you said it's your diet you might as well take time to learn how to eat properly so your gains can be the best they can be and you stay healthy while doing it.

    Definitely hold off on the anabolic steroids right now. Yes, AAS, does increase cholesterol levels and more importantly LDL cholesterol levels. You should also always have a sound diet before cycling anyways. Lay out a plan for yourself and try to change the red meats to lean white meats if you can such as chicken and fish. Eggs don't really affect cholesterol levels that much. I will attempt to find the study but I remember reading that a long time ago. I am sure if taken in large enough amounts it could negatively effect it but 4 eggs shouldn't be horrible. If you have genetically high cholesterol you could always use 2 whole eggs and like 4-5 egg whites as well as switching from red to white meat.

    Also if you are looking to improve these values, check out AI's Cycle Support (in my signature below). It will help get those values in check. Vitamin C (3+ grams), fish oil, proline, and lysine are also beneficial.

    Yes, Allicin and S-Allyl Cysteine are both key ingredients there. It is recommended that 500mcg of SAC and 9mg of Allicin are key in lowering cholesterol. I found that when I was digging through possible ingredients for cycle support.

    Yeah...'tis true. Especially with 17aa's. An enzyme produced by the liver is the culprit.
