    Tren effects on free testosterone in blood work

    I am on a 75mg Tren +150mg Test A EOD cycle. My test is dr prescribed and I will be doing my next round of blood work in 2 months. Will the Tren effect my free testosterone shown in those tests? Do I need to back off of it prior to getting it done? I don't want it to mess with my results and have them pull the script for test. Thanks for the help.

    It shouldn't. But it coukd throw off some other lab values (mainly metabolic and CBC stuff).

    So it sounds like I should go off the Tren before the tests are drawn. Any guidance on how many weeks before the blood gets drawn I should discontinue Tren? Thanks.

    Just depends on how much damage the Tren is doing to your body. It will increase your H&H, cholesterol, and liver enzymes. If your labs come back messed up, your doc will assume that your body isn't taking kindly to the testosterone and lower your dose or drop it altogether.

    You didn't get prescribed test ace?
    At least not 150mg EOD?

    There is no if. Tren is about the worst on all values trt should be checked on. Hct, lipids, BP, CBC.
    For me it takes 2 months. At least before the body has healed.

    Consider if you could talk to your doc first. Tell him that u wanna cycle but u dont wanna loose your trt. U wanna take the risk.
    I dont see any other choice if you wanna cycle i front of a trt-check.

    Doc wouldnt stop giving u other needed medicines if u told him u soon had to rob a bank because u needed money for your sisters eyeoperation.

    Most docs in the US would drop you as a patient if you admit you're going to use illicit drugs while under their care. They don't want uncontrolled variables that they could be blamed for.

    As if there would not be uncontrolled variables with that policy....
    If patients admitted it the docs would have a proof.

    Correct, my doc has me on 300/wk, I upped my dose a bit.

    Thanks for the advice on the blood work. I will stop the Tren 8 weeks before and drop my test down 4 weeks before. This should be ok I hope.

    I'd personally recommend seeing your GP as soon as possible and verifying whether they'll drop you as a patient as a result of this. Then reconsidering them as a GP if so, or if you feel they would be unhelpful in the event of other adverse reactions or situations that could arise. Really depends on your relation with your GP and how long they've known you.

    300mg Test a week is already 2-3 times basic HRT, plus the tren ? (pretty mild). I hope you're on AI's and DA's.

    Thanks for the advice. I will be talking with my trt doc and will let him know what else I am on. Maybe that will be off the record. I am on .5 2x per week arimidex . Don't seem to be having any real problems though. BP is ok, a little high. My sleep isn't as restful as it was, but I am still getting 9.5 hrs per day. Overall my Tren experience has been a good one. Moderate muscle gains with a nice amount of bf loss. 6 pack abs for the first time in my life - at 53! Also helps me get through 5 days per week of intense training. My recovery is so much faster.

    That's a small cycle, not TRT.

    Yes, I acknowledge that. I started with TRT and after 6 months started a small cycle. Going to cycle off in 1 month. Back to just TRT.
