    Blood Work

    Hey guys Im ready to make the dive. Im planning on running an 8 week papervar cycle at 30-40mg/day. I wanted to get my levels checked before though to see if everything is normal then get it checked later on in the cycle to see if anythings changed. I just wanted to know what levels I should have checked. If anyone knows a thing or two about blood work let me know. Also what are some sups I should take durring the cycle to protect myself. Thanks.

    You should get your:
    HDL
    LDL
    Total Cholesterol
    Triglycerides
    VLDL
    AST (SGOT)
    ALT (SGPT)
    BUN
    CREATININE
    BILIRUBIN
    WBC
    RBC
    HGB
    Thats what I get checked before and after a cycle. Just got mine done for my upcoming cycle starting the 10th.

    tell him what your doing it should all be confidential. my doc knows every move I make and often has good advice and tips for me.

    No, not at all. People ask all the time to see those things just so they can know whats going on in their body, if they have some problem that isn't showing symptoms like High Cholestrol, for example.

    Just tell the Doctor you want a:

    CBC with Differential/Platelet..Tell him you are just checking things out to make sure you are in good health..It shouldn't go beyond that unless you want it to..He will more then likely just send you down to the lab to have a lab tech do the workup..I really don't think the Anavar will make the readings vary too much..

    Me personally I want to know my liver values and to know where I am at on the HDL/LDL ratio, not to mention keeping an eye on my kidneys. CBC isn't enough for me personally.

    That test should include AST and ALT readings along with a complete Total Cholesterol level unless your particular lab does not include this in the CBC with Differential/Platelet series..I send patients for this workup several times per week and this is always included..

    Here is a sample of what our lab test for when we send patients down..

    CBC/Chemistry panel that includes glucose, cholesterol
    triglycerides and indicators of liver and kidney function
