    Will be 50 in August. I was happy with the T levels, but got concerned when the lab flagged the creatinine and BUN/ratio. I have a younger brother on HRT..go figure.

    If you're concerned about the creatinine stuff, stop training and drop ALL supplements a week before the blood test. Heavy training and a lot of kinds of supplements will throw that WAY off.
    Thanks, since getting the results I've seen that recommendation, but from what I understood training/supplements typically raise the creatinine levels. It had probably been 4-5 days of no supps before last test. Maybe I should stay on the supps for the next one!

    You are in healthy ranges, and if you doc isn't concerned I wouldn't be either... unless you have signs and symptoms of muscle wasting I wouldn't worry about it.
    The creatinine is under reference range and BUN/creatinine ratio is above reference range. Doc suggest another test of both.

    is your free test within range?
    Just curious about my numbers more than anything. Free T is low to mid-range.

    Advice on blood test results....good and bad?

    Recently obtained extensive blood test results being mostly concerned with "T" levels.

    Serum "T" = 666 ng/dL

    Free "T" = 12.4 pg/mL

    Prolactin = 6.0 ng/mL

    Estradiol = 20.0 pg/mL

    Needless to say, Doc won't treat with HRT due to "T" levels.

    What has me a bit concerned are a couple of the other results:

    Serum creatinine = .57 mg/dL

    BUN/creatinine = 44

    Based on a bit of research, these levels could be linked to muscle wasting conditions and perhaps liver/kidney issues. All I've ever read on these and other boards related to creatinine were concerns with high levels. I am on a somewhat high protein diet and regularly use MG's powdered muscle so I am getting solid amounts of dietary protein/creatine.

    Any thoughts?
