    Moderate to High Red counts

    Hello,

    I havent been on this site in some time but would like to compare some results and DR comments on my recent BW. From what i understand red count "normal" is around 5.2. I just had BW after a very low dose cruise and my Red count is 5.5. Apparently 5.4 is where they caution (yellow flag) if you will. I also suffer from Sleep Apnea which can contribute to a higher count. DR is working with me on the sleep disorder but is demanding i stop all Test support. I am just about to go into a blast cycle of 250mg npp and 500mg of enth/week and then cruise again to about 150mg test/week. Again he is telling me to stop now as i run the risk of blood clots. I dont want blood clots. He also stated i am not critical at this point but wants me to stop. I respect his opinion because he is my DR...he is also my new dr as last one i had long term moved away. My original Dr never brought up these concerns while i was on or off over the last two years. My gym bros say not a big concern but I would like to read thoughts from other people around the word that may have dealt with this before. I will start donating blood next week as i know this helps reduce the high red count. I feel good and would like to continue to feel good.

    I never started running gear until after i was diagnosed with low T from Dr to begin with. My whole life i stayed away from gear cause i just wasnt ready. Then it was prescribed to me and i thought **** it then i will start using. I have enjoyed amazing results and enjoy the lifestyle greatly.

    Age: Almost 40 (2months)
    weight: 220lbs
    height: 6'

    Thanks,

    Wait for a pro to chime in. But you can give blood And if they don't take you at a donation center ask ur TRT dr for a blood draw script.

    What John said. Know that Polycythemia is a serious matter. Giving whole blood or a double red cell donation will help. It's something you have to monitor and stay on top of for your health. Many on TRT routinely give blood as part of their protocol. You should also consider a downward titration of your weekly test dose to help slow down the issue. Doesn't mean you can't cycle, just know your numbers and keep health in mind before you do. Starting this cycle now would be a bad idea.

    Hmmm. K thanks for the comments. I guess my priority should be to get those reds down and then look at cycle. I will try to find that balance on the T to at least keep me levels respectable.
