Q & A legend (continued in comments)
I am diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism and secondary hypogonadism (I am on TRT). My TSH levels were around 4.70 My TSH medication consists of 75mcg T4 (Tirosint) which I take sublingually. With that dose my TSH went to 1.20. I am recently trying to lose weight, so I increased it to 88mcg and after a month to 100mcg. I always mentioned that to my Endocrinologist. I also ran Anavar and clen for 8 weeks. My recent bloodwork, 1.5 months after I stopped Anavar and clen showed TSH levels of 4.95! My endocrinologist said that maybe Anavar or clen interfered with my TSH and they need more time to get out of my system. She instructed me to raise my T4 intake to 125mcg from 100mcg and after 3 weeks to recheck my TSH levels. Can clen or Anavar interact with TSH levels? I’ve used Anavar in the past, but I didn’t have any problem!
Recently I’ve heard a lot of anecdotal experience of crashed E2 on high EQ, low Testosterone. A lot of semi bro science says there is an AI in EQ so I went to do some research and saw that 1,4 Dienedione or 1,4 Dienedone are active metabolites of EQ and interestingly enough are AI’s. The stretch I made is that these metabolites are the possible reason why EQ is so E2 suppressive. Is this well known in the medical literature or is my jump purely the result of too much Googling? Thank you for the informative response last week on DECA for my grandfather.
I started my TRT two years ago but since that time I don’t feel any progress. It only maintains my muscles so I wanna start doing cycles again. My question is after the cycle, do I need PCT or should I go back to my TRT? I’m taking tudca 250mg a day for my liver protection and I feel great but is it okay to take it all year around?
What’s the best and safest way to take clen? Should someone pyramid? And what’s best for cutting clen or Winstrol?
My acne has got out of control, so I went to the dermatologist and she has prescribed me roacutane. My question is can I keep using testosterone while taking roacutane and will the roacutane still do its job if I’m using anabolics? I’m only taking 150mg a week of test enanthate for TRT purposes.
I have a question regarding training with a mask. You mentioned one could get respiratory acidosis? Under which circumstances exactly can this happen? With thin surgeon masks or only with ffp2 or ffp3 masks and how long and heavy would one have to train for that to happen? Is it only a risk for long and/or very intense cardio (like HITT or something) or also for 45mins of lifting with 1-2 minutes breaks between sets?
Please tell me about blast and cruise dosages and time periods for blast and cruise which will be safer for the body.
What was the most powerful and efficient stack you have done? And the worst or dangerous ones? Some anecdotes?
Dr T Can you please give your opinion on the safety of long-term AI use? The Anabolic Doc says they are not safe, will lower HDL, and are not possible to safely use long term. TRT and Hormone Optimization says say you should never use them with TRT, they are very bad for your health. Love to hear your opinion on safety and if you think anyone who is only on TRT dose of test needs them.
I have hep c and failed the Harvoni treatment. My liver Dr said it’s because of the testosterone and I need to get off it. I’ve been on TRT replacement therapy for about 5 years and suffer from hypogonadism. I’m 49 years old. Is there a TRT replacement that is less harmful to the liver than testosterone cypionate? I’m currently taking 200mg test cyp per week.
I’m 22 and ran my first cycle which was 20 weeks long. It was 400 test cyp for the entire duration, 300 eq for 8 weeks and 20mg Anavar for the last 8 weeks. Been off for 2 weeks, going in for a bloodwork in 2-3 days to see whether I need a PCT or not. Is PCT necessary? Can you do a PCT with hcg and nolvadex and not include clomid because of its bad effects on the mood and water retention? Also is it possible to keep all the gains when you come off?
