    Deca showing as total test?

    So I went to do my blood work a couple weeks ago and the doctor called me and told me everything looked great except my total test was off the damn chart high. Trying to pinpoint the cause of this. Iíve recently switched doctors and perhaps the test they are using is showing a false positive as Iíve been tested before on deca and havenít had any problems.Another thought was maybe my guy sent test instead of deca. Never had any issues with the lab whatsoever. Primo or something like that I could see but not deca I wouldnít think. Anyone with experience on this would be greatly appreciated

    Yes it can happen if the Dr uses the ECLIA form of test vs. the LC-MS.

    There's a .gov document posted online about Deca interfering with testosterone values when using ECLIA testing.


    Hmm, I can't find it now, but there was a .PDF available.

    I’ll take your word for it. I gotta do bloods again in 4 weeks, you think that’s enough time to clear my system?

    I believe so. Read the link in post #2 and see if it mentions how they handled it. I would definitely drop the Deca now and probably order online labs on my own in 2 weeks to see how things are looking before I went back to my Dr.
    You don't want.to wreck your relationship w/ your Dr.

    Did they give you an actual value and reference range or just say "off the chart high"?
