  • VISIBLE to non-members.

I googled "private lab" and found 2 places im going to try for getting blood work done during cycle. The idea is a place that will not add these results to my medical history, like my primary care doctor.

My question is, specifically, what numbers/tests do i need to ask them to run for me? Thanks friends

Lipids, liver, E2, total and free test are the basics.

Thanks so much! Any idea if they can measure cortisol ?

Kinda wondering if stress has been a factor holding back gains for me. Last year or so has been pretty rough. Trying to force myself to let things go nowadays

Yes cortisol can be measured via blood work. Steroid hormones lower cortisol levels in the body drastically so they shouldn't be a concern on cycle.
