    cruising and cholesterol levels

    Hey guys

    To anyone who is cruising out there , did your cholesterol go through the roof from cruising ???

    Does testosterone injections increase or decrease cholesterol levels ( the bad cholesterol)??

    1- At HRT dose ( about 100 mgs a week)
    2- At cruising dosages ( in my opinion from 200 mgs and above)

    thanks

    hummm ... ok thanks for the reply guys , i will get blood work and go from there , if and when i get on test i will test my cholesterol before and after and see what happens.

    One more question :

    If someone has a low testosterone level , does that mean he is sterile ???

    Does low testosterone or being hypo = sterility ??

    Very high risk of cardiovascular problems if you will go with this long term.

    Total chol/HDL ratio is in your case 8,6 it should be under 5.

    Men should have HDL more than 1mmol/l and LDL under 3mmol/l and to be safe you should have HDL over 1,6mmol/l or 60mg/dl.

    But depends how substances you used. 17aa will kill your HDL...

    I know mate, just got more bloods back today, getting more done in another 6-8wks, my gp is more concerned about my WBC, up again by another 2.3
    My LDL is within normal range, so at the mo it's just keeping an eye on the lymphocytosis.
