Got the results back from my blood test. My doctor said that my thyroid level and testosterone is ok, but I do have high triglycerides. I'm going to be starting up my supplements along with a new workout routine that incorporates a lot more cardio, and a much stricter diet. I should get everythinig started sometime the middle of January.
With a higher triglyceride level, is there something else I should be doing about that to help me lose weight?

What are your actual levels of thyroid and testosterone?
A lot of doctors will tell you that things are "ok", but the values are on the low or very low side of normal.

I'll stop by my doctor's office on the way home from work today and pick up the actual report.Originally Posted by Sir Savage

I got my report back from my doctor and here are the results:
Triglycerides: 277 *should be less than 150?
Total Cholesterol: 206 *one year ago it was 170, can it go up 36 points in one year? I only eat healthy food!!!
Glucose: 99 *should be 65-99 mg/dL
Testosterone: 379 *out of a range of 241-827 ng/dL
TSH w/reflex to FT4: 1.36 *out of a range of .40-5.50 mIU/L
Any experts want to take a crack at this?

TSH levels on the low end, and high blood glucose could imply some degree is insufficiency in T3/T4 action.
From here, it is impossible without further tests to pinpoint the sources of the malfunction (assuming this is even the case, which I won't concede that it is). The dysregulation could be the result of increase plasma-protein binding, tyroine deficiency, low iodine levels.
Decreased conversion of T4 at peripheral locations (liver, kidney) is unlikely IMO since that would result in an increase in circulating T4 which inhibits TSH secretion. Even though it is in the lower range of the specrum, I'd wager against conversion being the culprit.
Supplement with some Tyrosine and get your Omega-3's up to lower the cholesterol.

Thanks for the reply. Because my thyroid is on the low end, do you think taking some Thyrogen-X might help? I'll try to get in some more Tyrosine....I'm already getting some of that in my daily protein shake but I can't remember the amount off the top of my head......probably not enough.
I'll restart my supplements, new workout routine that includes more cardio, and my new diet in 2 weeks time. The only difference in my diet will be even less calories than before. Hopefully, that will be enough.

Ohh yea! The amount in a typical shake is definately insufficient. Get some bulk L-tyrosine. It's relatively tasteless and goes down easy in juice.Originally Posted by Kegger

I started my new diet, supplements, and workout routine today. Here is what it looks like:
Breakfast: protein shake
late morning: ham sandwhich on wheat bread
early afternoon: can of tuna fish and some carrots
dinner: boneless skinless chicken breast or piece of fish with a bowl of chicken vegetable soup
ECA Stack 3 times daily
(25 mg E, 200 mg C, 1 A)
1000 mg pill of fish body oils twice daily (to lower my cholesterol)
Thyrogen-X twice daily to raise my Thyroid level (its on the low end)
Lipo Ultra and Capsaicin applied in the morning and after workout
I am changing how I lift from heavy weights to lower weights and more repetitions. Much more cardio in the way I lift. I do my workout routine in between my late morning sandwhich and my early afternoon can of tuna and carrots.
Monday: 1/2 hour cardio, chest workout, and abs
Tuesday: 1/2 hour cardio, legs workout
Wednesday: 1/2 hour cardio, arms workout, and abs
Thursday: 1 hour of cardio
Friday: 1/2 hour of cardio, shoulders and back workout, and abs
I am more determined than ever to lose weight at this point. Today I now weigh 215 lbs. That is way to much in my eyes and I will be relentless in my pursuit to lose all the fat I've gained.

I'd bump up the Fish Oil to around 4-6g, but everything else looks solid. Cals look very low, so the fat should be burning up nicely.

Gotcha, I'll double my current intake. Now I'm really gonna be burping up that nasty fish smell now!Originally Posted by Stay Puft

Update: 1 week down and I've lost 5 lbs....I'm down to 210 lbs. I expect from now on, I'll should be losing 2-3 lbs. per week. The diet is not as hard as I thought, except later at night....I get the munchies. To fight that, I'll drink a cup of iced tea with 0 cals and 0 sugar.....believe it or not, it still tastes pretty good.
