Bcaa vs creatine, which is better?

Bcaa vs creatine, which is better?

BCAA and nutrition: Branch chain amino acids is a measurement used to assess the nutritional status of a patient with chronic kidney disease. It is not a measure of kidney function per se. Malnutrion is common in patients with chronic kidney disease especially on dialysis and this appears to be a more sensitive test than serum albumin which usually drops later in the progression of renal disease. ...Read more

Incretin: Januvia (sitagliptin) is an incretin which inhibits the breakdown of an enzyme called dpp-4. Dpp-4 breaks down glp-1. Glp-1 stimulates Insulin and inhibits glucagon (which raises glucose). Inhibition of glp-1 breakdown means it can stimulate more Insulin and inhibit more glucagon. ...Read more

Amino fuel anabolic liquid (amino acids ) is it safe ?

Amino fuel anabolic liquid (amino acids ) is it safe ?

"Amino fuel": It might be generally safe, but it has 10 grams of sugar in each serving and also uses Cyanocobalamin for the b12. Routinely using anything over 5 grams of sugar in a serving causes a sugar spike and increased Insulin response -- possibly leading to Insulin resistance which you do not want. Also, methylcobalamin is much preferable over Cyanocobalamin for the b12. ...Read more

NO!: At 16 you should not need testosterone unless your doctor has checked your testosterone level and find it low. Excess testosterone is potentially quite dangerous.

Lab results "not fasting", glucose 117mg, Ac1 5.5%, Est Av Glucose 111, Insulin Inmuno 82.2 uIU/ml. Female, 33, 5'8, 208lbs, weighted 160 4-5 yrs ago.

Unclear question: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it is not likely that you have diabetes. However, the weight gain is not a sign of good health and you should try to lose weight (easier said than done). It may help to consult a nutritionist for advice. ...Read more
