Does Low Dose Accurate Work
Scam: This is a very-low-calorie diet with an expensive placebo. You'll lose weight by restricting calories, and spend money for something that will do you no good. Ask your personal physician whether a crash diet is really right for you. Better, start hanging out with people who are into physical fitness and join in. Unlike a crash diet, this will result in real, sustained good results. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Probably a bit: I have found mention of seanol helping to lower blood pressure but have not seen the actual studies and am guessing that the amount it will lower pressure is only a few points on average. It is safe to try and has other benefits but if your BP is very high it is unlikely to be adequate treatment by itself. See http://securepubs.Com/offer/abag28_fibroboost.Html. ...Read more
It is rarely helpful: There are some theoretical reasons why it can help and anecdotal evidence for its utilization although amantadine is a relatively challenging medicine to both tolerate as a patient and dose as a clinician so it requires a lot of fine tuning to be a useful intervention. I would talk with your prescribing doctor about how it makes you feel and i hope it could be a useful treatment approach for you! ...Read more
Will sustanon at such a low dose of 125mg weekly increase cholesterol levels I know it dose not raise blood pressure at that dose?
Titrating the dose?: I know you're searching for a safe dose to take. Understand this: taking sustanon is not recommended. If you're determined to use it anyway, rather than speculate, just have your lipids measured on the drug! ...Read more
29 y.left testicle looks smaller, low energy, very low libdio,my total T level is high normal, free t is lowest normal.asking for safe T booster. ?
Pt is prescribed testosterone pellets for low t, uses as directed, and tests at 3.77:1 test-epi. Anything unlikely/fishy there re:athletic doping?
Probably not . . .: Check out http://www.Webmd.Com/fitness-exercise/features/steroid-doping-questions-answers. Wada considers 4:1 as maximum to be normal so 3.77:1 is normal whereas 11:1 as in article would be consistent w/using performance enhancing drug eg anabolic steroid. However, that doesn't make t pellet legal for competition, just that someone got lucky at that test. ...Read more
Barely high: Overall the Hct of 47.7 is not much higher than the upper limit of normal, about 45.5 for an adult man. If you smoke, stop. Do you have sleep apnea? Smoking and sleep apnea are two common causes that can raise it. The MCV though is a different story, and is reflective of altered production of red blood cells in the bone marrow. I recommend you see a hematologist to sort this out. Be well. ...Read more
A doctor has prescribed 0.5 mg Arimidex 2x/week for low testosterone.E2 is 24 pg/ml and Total T is 199ng/dl. Could it work? On Clomid (clomiphene) E2 was 66 pg/ml
Maybe (not): Clomid (clomiphene) is used off-label to stimulate Testosterone production in hypogonadal men who want to maintain fertility (or by infertile men who hope to gain fertility). However, T is also converted into DHT & E2. Stopping conversion sometimes increases T. But it also sometimes diverts conversion to other. That's why Finateride & Dutasteride to inhibit DHT can increase E2 w/side effects. ...Read more
MCV level 78.3 MCH level 25.1 Can I take Iron pills and B12 Together? If so will twice a day be fine?
Yes to both: It would be better to take iron with food to avoid stomach irritation. It does not matter for B12. You may wish to substitute a multivitamin for B12 once a day. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Hope this helps and i think that you should try before giving up and/or going with donor eggs. ...Read more
