    ? on Blood work

    I have been off cycle for 6 weeks now and am getting my blood work done. I am going to get my test levels, LDL, HDL, and thyroid checked ( cause I never have) and want to establish a baseline. What other values should I get checked while I am there. FYI my doc will check whatever I ask her too. Thanks

    that should be comprehensive enough.

    the only things that really matter are your lipid levels, test levels, and thyroid.

    since you have those covered i would just ask what else would be a good addition to those.

    an MD should be able to recommend what else to test that would benefit you, however if there is a significant price increase i wouldn't add anything else.

    You may as well get liver function enzyme values checked, since you're doing bloodwork anyway. You'd like to see total and free test levels. How about a hematocrit too? Let's see if AAS significantly raise your RBC count....although I assume we have no baseline value.

    I just reread....off cycle 6 weeks may make hematocrit and liver values not so much of a factor.

    why not get it all done!

    GH
    IGF1
    Test ( free, total, bioactive)
    Estrogen
    actc
    cortisol
    t4
    t3
    rt3
    tsh
    dht
    fasting glucose
    insulin

    That will probably take two visits...most males can't give more than about 5 vials at a time...and that's usually 10 vials.

    Those are the tests I get done, on advice from my endocronologist/nutritionist.
