Blood Tests Before Using Steroid Cycle

The most effective way to control your health is by regularly taking blood tests. Your first step should be to look for a hospital, a polyclinic, or any other medical facility which take blood tests. The blood test is taken, as I think, you all know from the vein, it doesn’t matter how many times you take a blood test, the same blood is taken every time. The exception is the analysis of the sugar curve, for several hours from 3 to 5, you will regularly take blood tests. It is best to take tests in the morning and on an empty stomach. Also it is necessary to refrain from exercises for 2 hours before the blood test.
The main organ, which should be get increased attention of the athlete is the liver. I think you all know how important it is to regularly get tested for hepatitis. After all, most of the loads fall on the liver, people engaged in power sports use plenty of protein, which often negatively affects the liver. Oral steroids also are toxic to the liver. There are 2 basic tests for checking the liver function: ALT and AST, tests for hepatitis. You can sleep peacefully and not to worry about your liver condition, if the tests are approximately equal to these indicators – AST 10-34 E/L, ALT 9-43 E/L. If your AST and ALT are higher than normal, you will have to take a couple more tests such as albumin and bilirubin and several others. The best solution will be taking all tests at once, this will allow you and your doctor to get a complete picture of the liver condition. If you exceed the permissible values of ALT and AST several times, you will have to take tests for hepatitis (A, B, C).
Also, very important is test for cholesterol, its content in the blood and the fraction of its density. High-density cholesterol, PAP, is “positive” cholesterol, its content in the blood should not exceed 1.42 mmol / l. Cholesterol, low in LDL, when test for cholesterol is taken, it is bad cholesterol and its concentration in the blood should not exceed 3.5 mmol / l.
Another important is the test of the atherogenic factor, in general terms the test shows your predisposition to chronic genetic diseases. Indicators of this test vary depending on the age of the person who takes it. For example, for people from 40 to 50 years the norm is 3-3.5, and at the age of thirty it should not exceed 2.5.
When you visit the hospital, you can also check your kidneys, do a urea test. Do not forget to do several other tests, for example: triglycerides (level of fat metabolism), tests for calcium and sodium, and other tests, including the main blood test. Perhaps you will be offered to check your thyroid gland, do not refuse, as people say – “forewarned is forearmed.” In any case, you will always be informed about the full course of available tests on the spot, if this does not happen, do not hesitate to ask yourself. Estrogen analysis and testosterone analysis will never be superfluous, and for the athlete they are actually mandatory.
