    your parents are going to be there? how old are you?

    if your going to see how you are doing on a cycle you have to ask your blood to be run for certain things test levels ect.
    they are probably going to run for cholesterol, maybe liver numbers and kidney numbers..

    Well here's my experience. I went to a doc for a blood test a couple weeks ago and my ALT and AST liver reading were pretty high. The doctor looked at them and told me she thought I had a liver tumor or liver hepatitis. What she didn't know was that the enzyme secreted by the liver when the liver is damaged that caused ALT and AST to rise is also the same enzyme secreted by your muscles when you lift weights. She didn't know that in order to assess liver damage in a bodybuilder you need to check the GGT and CK.

    So basically, she scared the shit out of me for no reason.

    Just bare in mind that most doctors' knowledge of AAS is limited to a chapter or two in med school, and is based on very old very outdated and mostly wrong information.

    It's my personal policy NOT to tell doctors about my AAS use for that reason.

    BTW, she also told me I was at risk for "sudden death" because of my liver readings. That was before I "schooled" her, lol. Anyway, I'm still alive.

    red meat, how high were your values. I'm curious because mine were, "elevated" in the eyes of my Doc. My values were 130 and 150 . He did say though that bodybuilders have higher numbers for some reason.. He didn't go into specifics like you just said, but i'm glad I just read what you wrote about weightlifters values being elevated naturally..
