  • Getting your blood work done? Read this!

    We encourage everyone to get their blood work done Here are the reasons why:

    • General health and wellbeing. Your blood work is a roadmap to your body and your overall health. 90% of the diseases and ailments you could have in your lifetime, including cancer, and many other terminal illnesses will show themselves in your blood work long before they manifest symptoms on the outside of your body. Its wise to know what your cholesterol and other lipids are at, along with your liver and kidney markers. 
    • To understand what your hormone levels are BEFORE you begin taking steroids or any other drugs. I can’t stress this enough to our customers. Its relatively cheap and easy to get your blood work done, so spend $100 and get some basic tests done to see what your natural Testosterone levels are at, and to know if you have any other levels that should cause concern. It would not be wise to begin  cycle of oral anabolic if you already have high liver enzymes, or beginning any anabolic if your kidneys are very stressed. Not only will the drugs be much less effective in your system, but the damage done to your organs and body can be great. 
    • To know if the Testosterone products and HGH your taking are real. This is why most guys will want the blood tests, and we encourage everyone to do it to ensure their products are real and they are spending their hard earned money on top shelf products. 

    If you have insurance-

    Some of you may have insurance, if you do a full panel blood test can be done for very cheap if your physical; will order it. Most will if you tell them you want one just to ensure your healthy. Get the full panel and make sure they test for free testosterone as well. Most insurances will not cover a HGH or more precisely an igf test. This has to be ordered separate, but its not expensive. 

    If you don’t have insurance-

    If you don’t have insurance, then you can choose from one of the man y different labs online sites that offer this service. Most of them are very straight forward and pretty cheap too. You don’t need a doctor order or prescription to get this done. You choose the tests you want on the website, pay the fee, and then you select one of the blood drawing facilities they have listed. Most people live near a lab corp or some type of lab that will draw blood. Select the facility, and compete the transaction. You will have a for you will take into the facility to draw the blood, they will draw it there, and then send you on your way. A few days later you will have an email with he results. This is really a great way to check your blood on a regular basis. 

    Protocol for testing your testosterone products

    depending on the Testosterone your taking, I would recommend injecting 48 hrs before your test. This is important as this will give you the best result and the most accurate reading on the product. Inject the dose, I would take 1-2 cc’s of whatever product your using depend on your normal dose. 48 hrs later, you should  have the blood drawn. Sometimes they want you to fast in the morning of the test, other times they don’t. 

    Protocol for testing HGH (igf)

    Do a 10 iu injection of your hgh product, 3-4 hrs after taking the injection is when you want to have the blood drawn for the test. No strenuous activity for at least 30 min prior to test, so don’t work out or anything before getting the blood drawn. 

    Should I tell my doctor I am taking Testosterone or HGH

    This is really a personal choice and it depends on if you feel comfortable doing so. some Doc’s ar cool with this kind of thing, and others are not. If you feel your doctor is not cool with this, then I would tell them you are taking a new testosterone boosting supplement from GNC and ask them if they can do blood test to see if yours has raised or where its at? If they ask you what kind it is, tell them DHEA, or Tribulus. They should not have an issue with this. If your getting the test done from one of the online websites, they will not ask you any of this as its none of their business. 

    When you have the test done you should be able to decipher it to see where your levels are at. if you need any help with this, please send us over or let us know the results and we’d be more then happy to help you read the results. This goes for anything to do with general health or the hormone readings. Make sure you get a hard copy of the results from the doctor or lab company. Remember, these are your test results, they belong to you as you paid for them. Keep them in a safe place and file them away for future references. 

    If you need a reference for a good online lab to test your blood, please feel free to email us, i have a few we use on a regular basis.
