    Question,
    I have never used real injectable type gear but I have puffy gyno type nipples really bad. I have used those "prohormone" things your can buy in the store and noticed that I got some lumps under my nipples after I stopped taking that stuff but that was a year ago. I am dieting for my first show and as I get leaner the more they show out... Are some guys predisposed to get gyno even if not on gear or having ever taken gear? The show is not a tested show at all but I am going in only having supplemented with protein and vitamins all 20 weeks, I dont wanna appear like Im on gear when Im not...
    thanks
    time will tell

    hey doc,

    i have a medical question.

    i currently am taking trazodone for sleeping. but i also just purchased some additional arginine to take throughout the day. i have read that the night time dose before sleeping is very important however i was wondering if this would interact with my trazodone.

    thank you.

    Hey Doc,

    there are a lot of myths around trenbolone. based on bloodworks do you think it really affects negatively the kidneys and liver values? thanks

    hey doc, i got a serious question i was running the other day doing some hard intervals and i began to get a bad tightness in my chest so i stoped and walk.

    then yesterday i did a back workout and then did some cardio (45min) on the elipitcal. about 2 hrs later i went out to eat and had a very uneasy feeling in my chest.

    so after dinner i went over to my girlfriends house and i used her mother blood pressure machine and i got a reading of something like 197 over 88 with a 99 pulse. which i know is not good.

    so i waited alittle bit and calmed down then went to hannafords and used there machine and i got a reading of 165 over 70 with a pulse of 92.

    so this morning when i woke up i took another reading and the results were better 145 over 72 with an 78 pulse.

    im currently running 500mg of test its my 5th week and i did an anadrol kicker at 50mg on workout days for 3 weeks(anadrol def fucked me up).

    im def going to stop my cycle and cutting out some red meat and getting some lipid stable.

    my question is what should i do workout wise should i stop or should i just no go so hard. also would u do a pct bc i heard anti-e are hard on ur heart too.

    i have no insurce right now so im kinda screwed. and once i get a job i will be joining up with u cuase im real close i live in duchtess county ny. thanks

    and will the diaretic make cell volumizing supplemets like creatine, taurine , l glutimine less affective cause they pull water into the muscle and the diaretic is pulling water out?

    Hey doc didn't get to meet you at arnold too many people good time though. Anyway I have a question regarding blood pressure. I am a 23 yr old bodybuilder and recently my blood pressure seems to floating around 140 over 80 . I have never taken AAS , I do supplement with protein, creatine, arginine, glutamine, 600 mg of ecdysterone , 500 to 1000 mg Methoxyisoflavone a day. Is there anything I can do to help get the top number in check? I weigh about 205 lbs 5ft 9in. I do not have a lot of bodyfat definetly under 10 percent. Should I be concerned or is this something that is commom? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

    OK here we go, OMG sooooo many guys are calling and joining up after the Arnold !!! Thank you and lets roll. I am looking to hire my first intern "anabolic doc very soon" but for now, you guys get the man himself!!!

    so lets go with speed round questions:

    TRT HPTA shut down question guy.. great question, who knows ?? we do nopt have any longb term literauture on this topic. Actually, this is part of the reason why I came out of the underground!! to establish some guide lines on this crazy, but great sport of muscle building !!

    And I love your question and great one truely, what will happen after 30--50 years of shutting down your own nature production of T, LH, FSH and can you imaging the implications on the pituiatrgland in genral with such down regulation... no one knows. that is why I watch my patinest close with frequent labs and I manage T E2 and DHT.. not too mention tight control on cardiac risk factors.. i am trying to maximize every aspect of the "medical approach" known to modern day medicine.. so lets see what happens, talk to me in 50 years


    AAS and heart enlagrement!!!!!!!! This is my baby, My expertise is managing the intoward effects of AS onn the vascualr system and LVH is big time consideration!!! appears that As , in usual super physiolologic doses will damge blod vessels and lead to early MI and stroke, ED PVd

    A multi system affect. direct damage to the deliquite endothelioum and secondary to elevate BP, abnormalities in cholesterol panel--eg high LDl and low HDl, big problem!! so yes, heart will be damaged form AS,, so if you are on, better see your doc and manage these issues. good news, its possible to block these affects.. thats what I do.. I am the GURU on this



    Chest pain guy..see above... and get bp undercontrol please!!! serious, you will pay and for all Jack asses like UK strong ass hole.... yes, if you bp is elevated ... your in trouble and I am using a scar tactic ass hole


    I love my patients and I do not F around thats why at the Arnold people love me!!!



    Tim man who used our labs on line thanks man. glad you enjoyed our service... and you got your labs done and an answer to your issue... Glad we can be at your service...come again.. and from Dutchess CO.. great just next door.. look forward to caring for you one day in our practice.. stay strong and healthy bro


    metoprolol tartrate guy... this is a beta blocker and we do not use it any more for essential hypertension, which is what you probably have and HCTZ is a thiazide diuretic , which is still first line drug for BP, but I have moved away from it for many reasons, specially in my lifters.. now I use ACE inhibs and ARBs in addition to Amlodipine... for first line... see my recent blog on my web for a very informative response from me on this topic... all of you... very important !!! and take it to your docs....


    Arnold guy who was trying to see me... sorry i missed you... I met soooo many great people.. Ill have a booth next year and we will kick some butt with all medical info for all... I am going to open up the world of medicine to my lifters I love.......

    Doc what is your opinion on Marijuana and the athlete. I have always thought it to be a much better alternative to alcohol as far as health effects. You can smoke pot and still be a successful bodybuilder or athlete, but if you drink alcohol everyday you probably won't be to keep your physique in the kind of shape required to be a bodybuilder or any type of physical athlete. Would like to know your opinion?

    ok

    So busy about 4 new patients per day now, I can not hold up for much longer. so Im in middle of getting new Doc and I just Hired Fern Assard, figure girl, and Pro Fitness model as my personl assitant to help me take over the medical/lifter world.

    See her on face book and my web site as for her contact info. She will take your questions,as for joining practice ,as I will direct growth of practice and care for my special existing patients


    questions: Sorry forgot the guy with Tren question... Ok here we go

    Tren is a very special and poerfull AS, as you know. it ahs very strong androgenic properties--3x that of T!! and is very Harsh!! So right there we know to respect it.. as far as renal relations to Tren, much talk, but like much of AS and the world i (and maybe you ) have entered, not too much evidence based medicine.. thats why Im on the scene. and Im talking about "clinical medicine" not cut and past crap going on in muscle blogs.. sorry. As for renal as for what I ahve seen on real labs related to this drug , I cant say I can report any "direct" adverse renal affects. Although, lets talk about what this drug can do, in terms of sides... big increase in BP, destruction of HDL and direct adverse affects on endothielial lining of blood vessel walls!!! net effect, as with any AS, kidney damage!! more from secodary effects , eg, bp,ldl/hdl ratio, but very important new!! direct effects from Columbia Univ. and renal failure and weightlifters who use AS !! recent NY Times article.. do see it.. eg Flex was mentioned as example....

    I am currently in discussion with these docs and trying to formulate some guidelines on how to really protect my patients from future damage.. coming along well!!

    Comon issues with Tren, and relations to myth of reanl problems may be from dark urine, which is from the fact that its metabolic nature is limited and is excreted as a rust colured oxidised pigment. has nothing to do with actual estimated GFR.. so know one really knows about this "kidney Toxic" potential and the "back pump" thing is damn right stupid... you strained your back man!! dont get me wrong, you mess with this very strong drug and you will pay !! in the HTP-gonad axis and other departments...and im my clinical experience, its the secondary effects of AS that are most important, eg. BP, adverse lipid profile that I see every day and I know how to manage.. and that is one of the most important things I do in my real clinical clinic!! thats how I save lifes and keep my lifters strong and healthy... Its the heart, that matters!!




    Bulging discs no issues, you will get over it, with proper training, we all do.. see West Side Barbell for core training


    Marijuana guy.. yeahh better than booze. SHHHHH I used to smoke pot and train arms to death in college SUNY Oswego and Syracuse Univ.. back inj the day 1980 s look at me now!!!



    Stay strong and healthy

    Default long term pregnyl use

    Hi,

    there is a bodybuilder in my gym(IFBB WC-competitor) with an interesting case that nobody(No doctor, specialist,...) seems to be able to help him with. All doctors say they have never known someone with that kind of situation.

    The situation is as following..

    About 20 years ago, his test level was very low after AAS use. So he used pregnyl for a few weeks. Bloodtests indicated that testlevel was still too low, so the doctor said to him to keep using pregnyl. So he did.. But he used it for up to 8 months in high dosages (15000iu/week). Since then his test level is elevated to double of the maximum-healthy-level. And it never went down anymore in 20 years. He doesn't do post cycle therapy anymore, because his own testlevel never goes down.

    But now, because he's getting older, because he always wants sex more then ones a day, and because his doctor says this situation will go wrong one day, he went to some doctor who gave him medicines to lower his test level. The idea was to lower it to a minimum and hope it will restore to normal levels after stoping with the medicin. Result: His test level dropped to a minimum, but restored back to double of the level considered to be maximum-healthy-level.

    Do you know other cases like this? What are the risks he's facing with this situation? Do you know a possible solution?

    Default Anabolic Doc

    I have a question regarding the use oral steriods during pain management therapy. I have ruptured and or bulging discs in my lumbar spine. I still lift with caution as not to totally fuck myself up, but i feel the narcotic pain management therapy I am now enduring has killed my testosterone production and has left me standing atop a plateau. I'm taking oxycodone and ms contin on a daily basis, I have also had epidural cortisone injections and from what my doctor tells me cortisone is a steriod. Could I just skip all the cortisone and just use an oral steriod such as d-bol.Will this give me the same benefit or will i piss my kidneys out due to the use of the narcotics. The doctors say my situation is not critical enough to go under the knife but they got me flying high all day just to get by. I've hit the wall with my training due to the constant leg pain but I'm still moving on top .Do you think this might help repair or stop the deteriorization of my discs.Any input would be greatly appreciated since my doc won't even discuss it

    cortisone is not an anabolic steroid it does not have the same effects... listen to your doctor or find one with a different answere but DO NOT start mixing opiates and blackmarket oral steroids you will regret it later... put your training on hold and get healthy or risk life long damage...

    hi,

    I read MD and espacially your column with great interest. My friend really is in this situation. And i thought that if someone would be able to give some hints, it would be you.

    Doctors say to him "it can't be like this", "what are you taking?", "..." It happened more then ones that the lab tested his blood 2, 3 times, because they thought that the results weren't exact. So I understand your reaction...
    But the situation is like it is and my friend ectually doesn't have a problem with it. In pure bodybuilding-aspect, it's better for the muscles... But doctors have made him, and especially his wife, a little bit anxious for possible bad things that can happen.

    I also understand that to be able to solve this problem, you'll have to meet him etc. But we're from Belgium, so it's a little difficult.. I just hoped that maybe you knew more cases like this one..

    best regards
