? When ordering bloodwork through private med labs

Topic created · 10 Posts · 435 Views
  • So I see I have a location in my area. Which test do I order to get the complete bloods I need that those who do bloods get?
    Also, how long off my blast should I get my bloods checked? I plan on cruising on 125 mg.

    Have you ever run tests before?

    E2 sensitive, Total/Free Testosterone LCMS, CBC(hgb/hct,RBC count). Frequency could be ever 4 to 6 weeks depending on what you’re doing. I do these tests every 2 months.

    CMP(liver and kidney function tests once a year), however if you’re running AAS with known liver toxicity run them more often. Could just run enzymes ALP, AST, ALT if all you’re interested in is liver.

    Lipid Panel(once a year)

    SHBG(get a baseline of where you’re at to determine injection frequency).

    Preliminary workup should include a PSA. I run a Thyroid Panel once a year.
    PSA every 6 months to be safe, bare minimum would be once a year.

    If you’re donating blood frequently(every 56 days) get a Ferretin level(iron level) run.

    Coupons are available for 15-20% off labs. They’ll be sent to your email every few weeks.

    Go with the panels to save money. Ordering test individually costs a lot more.

    PrivateMDlabs is by far the cheapest place to get them ran, even with insurance this much testing would cost a fortune as just a simple Total and Free T LCMS from my employer runs $400.

  • No this is the first time I’ve ever ran gear so wanting to get my blood work done. I’m new to all this so I need the dummy version. Just want ro make sure everything is g2g.

    Are you interested in safety or just wanting to know how effective your gear is.

    Is money a concern. May have to limit your panel to just the basics.

    PMDlabs has a panel under hormones>bodybuilding. “Hormone Panel for Males” for $179 -15% off with coupon code, which would be around $150.

    If anyone else has a suggestion on how to put together a cheaper panel that would be great. This is first time labs. I’m gonna assume you haven’t started taking anything yet.

    Safety labs are CBC, PSA. These need to be done for your own safety. The Hematocrit being something you can monitor if you donate blood, which you can do every 56 days. Although the monitors use capillary blood and that tends to raise the hemoglobin 1 gram.

    Ultimately the panel above covers the basics.

    I prefer using the LCMS testing for Test levels, however it’s more expensive and slower turnaround times.

  • https://www.privatemdlabs.com/lab_tests.php?view=search_results&show=2572&category=14&search=Hormone Panel with Testosterone LC/MS-MS#2572

    Most basic one with lc/ms-ms available

    You should get bloods before your blast, every 6 weeks during, and 6 weeks after.

  • For safety reasons. I’ve been running 500/mg test for 13 weeks. I was only going to run it for 12 and do a PCT but decided to go BnC route at 125 mg/week. I just started a new relationship and honestly kinda worried if I go BnC my thing won’t work on que.

    I will definitely get that test you recommended. After the 16 weeks is up should I wait a couple of weeks to get the work done or should I do it now?

    I would be more worried about my thing not working if I PCT’d. Going the cruise route should be no big deal. Get some cialis if you are really worried.

  • Thanks @“Dexter” @“propionate”

    Get bloods on cycle. That way you know for sure your ai is dialed in and what your multiplier is. You can use that info for future blasts. If you drop to a cruise I’d get bloods again 6 weeks into my cruise. Do it fasted so the liver values will be accurate and then once you get the results two things happen

    1a) your levels are good (Test/e2 normal with no ai)
    1b) your levels are high or low and you adjust the dose then repeat bloodwork again in 6 weeks to see how the change impacted you

  • They have a bodybuilder test actually which is cool. I’d wait 6 weeks after coming off, 8 weeks if you really want to be safe, then you’re good
