NOTE: Simple Mass Spectrometry is not enough to determine dosage and purity of tested substance.
Tests done with GC/MS, LC/MS/MS or HPLC methodes are considered much more reliable!

This was my off cycle bloodwork while running 5 iu pharmatropin ED all one slug in the morning. I’m disappointed in the IGF but it shows there is some GH being converted, just less than I’d like. It should be noted this pack was in transit for 6 weeks (mostly due to time of year/transport conditions) so perhaps that had an impact on the strength.

Regarding cholesterol, I tested my total cholesterol during a blood draw immediately following 8 weeks of anavar and some winstrol. Total cholesterol came back a few points over 400.

I shit a brick. I’ve never seen it so high. I immediately got on irongame’s cholesterol protocol, fish oils high dose ED, red yeast rice twice a day, policosanol, niacin, and TUDCA. I am SO relieved to see it down over 50% in just 4 weeks. I will continue to monitor and have adopted some dietary changes to supplement as well. I had not had problems previously and I know it was mostly just the winstrol but I never want to see that again. Moral of the story get your shit CHECKED.

All the best to you my brothers and a very happy new year from the Beard!

Main Thing is keeping your HDL up and triglycerides low. Though High cholesterol is bad it is not as bad as once thought. Higher than normal cholesterol can be hereditary and considered normal for some. Now I am not talking like the levels you had that is not normal for anyone. But great post though it shows how much Var and winnny can affect cholesterol. My normal is like is around 160 or so but var had me around 260 or 270. So it goes to show just how much certain oral affect your cholesterol. It was around 50mgs dosed 2 times a day. I dont think I took anything except for fish oil which I took while on it. But I take red yeast rice and liver cleansers when on oral now and it doesnt seem to affect it as bad. Also double up fish oils. It was tested around 8 weeks to 10 weeks later and it went back down to 172.
