    Consulted my Doctor/Physician

    Hi guys, Some of you may know that I'm starting my very first AAS cycle in just over a week. I've been reading a lot and I'm all equipped and ready to roll. I'm very excited about it to be honest!

    I thought I'd do what many don't do, and I went to have a consultation with my Doctor. I want to be honest about my intentions and reasons, and I wanted assurance that my Doctor would monitor me over the next 3-4 months, and have regular blood tests.

    My Doctor advised me against doing AAS. His principal concerns were 1. Osteoporosis when I get older and 2. Diabetes.

    Have you guys considered the increased risks of suffering osteoporosis and diabetes? Is there anything we can do to decrease the risks? My blood pressure is perfect, my weight to height ratio is perfect. I'm getting 'fasting' blood work done tomorrow morning. And I'm adamant about doing this cycle.

    Just wanted your thoughts....

    There r risks everyday u step out the door. Through my research and learning the benefits of aas outway the negs. There is not much research that shows aas r actually that bad. Because they r clasified in the same category as Cocain and meth, there can b no scientific testing done to prove it one way or the other. Shit breathing the air here in California is worse for u than aas
    Stay consistent!

    I've been a client of TRT Clinics, talked to their MD's and talked to my own Primary, NP's and different practice doctors for well over decade. End of day they all agree TRT will not extend your life but increase your quality of life.

    The guys I know my age on my level are at least using GH.

    I had a person warn me of diabetes as well. I researched it and came up with nothing. I, like you, think they confused the type of steroid. Maybe get private lab tests and skip the doctor. Talk with vets here about your results. I am pretty sure MDs don't spend a whole lot of time on AAS in medical school and much of what is said is media biased and even coming from a doctor not based on hard scientific evidence. It might spook you more than anything and cause you a lot of undo stress.

    I do commend you for being proactive however, and responsible.

    I've heard it's best to not let your Doc know about your use of steroids, unless health problems occur and he must know. They keep everything in your records and notice of steroid use can be a red flag when looking for health insurance, or can get you dropped from your current insurance.

    Re: Consulted my Doctor/Physician

    I don't tell my Doc what I'm taking, even if I would tell him about what I do I know he'll advice me against it cause he doesn't want to risk in losing losing his license, also everything i tell him he writes it down on my file so I don't want to have any type of record. I been seeing the same Doc for at least 10 years and he does my blood work every three months cause he has me on TRT, so my point is that 99.9 percent of Doctors will advice u against using AAS, so you need to inform yourself by reading and looking up to a lot of great members who have experience with AAS. But remember a good diet is what matters the most in this game, doesn't matter how much AAS you use, if your diet sucks then AAS is not the solution, Good luck.
