    Yellow/tanned look to skin on tren?

    Has anyone felt like while on tren there skin tone has a bit of a yellow tone to it? Is it even possible? A few coworkers have asked me if I got some sun. Looking a bit "tan". I haven't been in the sun in months. Maybe the lack of sleep is getting to my head?!? My urine is def darker for the amounts of water I drink. That's normal though.

    Yellow skin can be a side effect of a very serious issue jaundice which is the start of liver failure.You should get some blood work if you think your skin is going yellow.

    What is your water consumption? How often do you urinate daily? Are you taking tren alone or other orals? Any itchiness associated with skin discoloration? Bloating/edema/water retention in face, hands, feet, chest? How about any changes to cornea of your eyes?

    Ha! Might as well be. Week 2 on ace and its on. More of a red, really. Still helps with definition, or illusion rather!

    I drink a 1.5-2 gals a day always going to the bathroom. Tren /prop no Orals yet. Clen in a week or so. No itching or sourness. No bloat. Eyes look normal. My skin isn't yellow just has a slight tanned look. I was asking because I haven't been in the sun.

    I've never taken Orals, and don't take any other pills but fish oil. Caber and adex for control but that's it!

    Ok. Sounds good. Your aren't showing classic signs of liver distress (itchy skin, water retention/edema, changes to cornea). I have seen the discoloration in the skin you refer to on tren cycles. It comes and goes. Keeping hydrated is key, not so much for liver function but renal function. Ideally your urine should be nearly clear and odorless but tren will affect the glomular filtration to a small degree and cause more discoloration in your urine. As long as you aren't straining to void, there's no pinkish (bloody) color (hematuria) and it doesn't hurt to urinate there's no immediate concern. Taurine will help to an extent but certainly keep the water intake up. Watch for sudden changes in bowel movements or cases of dyspepsia (upset stomach/gas/bloating) as this could be secondary to liver function issues.

    If in doubt, get BW for LFTs, BUN, creatinine clearance especially if the symptoms mentioned above arise or worsen. NAC/TUDCA would be beneficial even while on tren.

    PM me if additional concerns manifest.

    you sure its yellow? it could be high blood pressure that's making your face a little red-er, giving you a "tan" look.

    Are you running prami or caber along with this? I've got zero bloat, actually am getting pretty vascular and drying out. Lets see what some of the tren experts think.

    I agree. You could have AAS induced acute liver injury (also called hepatitis - no relation to the viral kinds). Ursodiol works really well for treatment at 10-15mg/kg divided 2-3x per day with a fatty meal.

    I didn't realize there were so many posts in between the original post and my reply. I also didn't notice that MuscleInk was all over this. You can basically ignore my post.

    No, your advice is spot on. Another member has mentioned bloating in addition to changes in skin color. While not a ddx for liver distress, the added bloating would be something of further concern and worth active surveillance (or possibly BW to rule out other possibilities). Your recommendation was valuable Doc.

    If your skin has a yellow appearance I would see a doctor just to be safe. How about the whites of your eyes and fingernails?

    It's really not yellow. And my eyes and nails are fine. Might be raised BP turning it a bit reddish. I have kinda olive skin as it is so it might come across a bit dif. I'm going to schedule a dr apt next week just to get a check up. Thanks Alin!

    yes, I'm on caber and aromasin , although I discontinued caber cause I was feeling sick.
    You say no bloat. which week are you? I just started 4th week and no vascularity by now, but bloat yess. I rised aromasin dose, hope it helps. I just bumped tren to 60mg ED. Simply having not the right tren kick... don't know man, its prochem stuff, and 100% legit, maybe its due I'm bulking. how you're doing??

    I'm running prop 100mg and tren ace 150mg EOD with caber and adex for ai. I'm cutting so am on a cal def and hyper conscience about sodium intake. Week 3.5 as of now and no bloat. Sweats, breathing and no sleeps is about all I'm getting for sides but it's like I don't even notice it anymore. Might want to check your sodium intake and diet. You said your bulking? Maybe double check with the nutrition gurus if its playing any roll in your bloat. Is your strength/weight increasing?

    I am getting some back acne on this cycle that I haven't gotten before but think its due to the prop and night sweats prolly aren't helping.
