I’m glad your labs came back good brother. Hopefully you can get the creatinine down. Did you have lipids ran as well?

I did. Lipids are never a problem. I can eat just about anything and take everything and they are always good. Genetically, I got lucky on that one.

What brand of astragalus have u been using?
Swanson. I have used it for a couple years and it usually keeps me in the 1.3x range. I could also just increase the dose. I was just reading some studies that showed the optimal dose for reducing creatinine is 3 grams a day. I have been taking 1.5 grams a day.

Well, my testosterone results came back finally, total test 729. I went off TRT 1 November as part of my health cleanout and I ran HCG for 3 weeks post TRT at 500 iu 3x a week. Not really as a PCT, more just to get my nuts back. I did not run any AI's, as I didn't want my recovery to be too great, plus I hate AI's. I was actually hoping my total test would come back low, so the doctor would up my script and I could bank test, so I didn't have to buy any when I run cycles. No such luck. I did the same thing last year and my test came back about the same, so it is safe to say my body still recovers well despite being on TRT for a couple years. One thing I can tell you, is when you go on a blast cycle after doing this it is amazing. It is almost like a first cycle all over again. Looking forward to the start of the year.

V-grip pull downs (4) feeder sets, 230 lbs x 11/180 lbs x 8 (Back off set)

with the elevated creatine levels, do you ever get gout like pain in the feet or ankles?

Yeah, I think Swanson is a great brand. I would just take more. At least till bottle is out. I was only taking 1 gram twice a day. Idk if splitting the dose helped but maybe spreading it out could help. You’re probably already doing that though aren’t you? Now that I’m on a blast I increased it to 1.5gm twice a day. I read/ heard same as u recently that u want to take 3gms.

So u just started using gear a couple years ago? And just trt doses? What was you total test when u got on? I’m asking because I think trt even at same total test as what u would be natural that u grow better. Because instead of the ups and downs with natural levels, on trt it’s a lot more steady at elevated levels. Like I would image maybe keeping a total test of like 500 on trt is probably more equal to double that naturally. Did u add a decent amount of muscle when u went on trt? Cause I know u been training hard a lot longer than U have been on trt. Or did u cycle before going on trt a couple years ago? How long have you been using gear? If u don’t mind me asking. I’m being nosey/curious. Lol

Oh no, I have been using for 25 years, averaged a couple short 8-12 week cycles a year. Even did a 6 month cycle when I was young and dumb. I just jumped on TRT I think it was March 2020, so almost 3 years now. There could be something to what you are saying, being on TRT even if total test is the same is a greater benefit, but I don't know. What I do know is 1000 total test is significantly better than 729, so TRT is where it is at. Plus, like you said, I have more control. When I did start TRT there was a massive physiological response. Muscle growth and fat loss was easier.
