Just got the results this morning, hematocrit was 43.1. I'll scan the results and post them later when I have time to black out the names. From last time this is only a 1 pt increase, but the last blood test was all the way back in august while being on test so after coming off it could've dropped. I think I will up th dose, not sure what to yet. Maybe 3000iu mon/wed/fri, or 6000iu mon/thurs. Not sure yet
Hey mp, hope your E is good. I've ran a few cycles of E here is my protocol if you are interested;
* Pre load 2-3 weeks with about 150 mg/day of Fe in split dosages. Ferrochel is a good brand, but I use EP-No as ferrochel irritates my GI tract. Take with vit c to increase absorbance. Try to take 1/2 hour before eating.
* 3-4000 kiu eod for three weeks or 50kiu per kg bw
* B-12 supplementation
* Baby aspirin per day once crit reaches 50
* Stay hydrated
* Avoid sitting or crossing legs for extended period to avoid clots
* Avoid nolvadex as it increases chances of clots when used with E
* Trans ferretin should be ~125 before starting
* Serum ferretin should be ~ 100ng/dl before starting
* Saturation at least 20% before starting
*1500 kiu every 3- 4 days to maintain, cut the iron in half.
* IV is better than SubQ for several reasons
* Buy a crit spinner (**broken link removed**) and learn to check your crit level yourself. IV sample is more accurate than from a lancet.
I'm glad I bought one because I respond very quickly to E and and need about half the dosage most people need. I was at 50 plus very fast and probably would have went higher if I wasn't monitoring. Blood is crazy thick at this level. Higher than 55% you need to go donate some blood.
I would almost guarantee some pro athletes are using E not just endurance guys. Hockey, soccer, rugby, football, and basketball are good candidates for what it offers.
I hope you get the cycle going and look forward to the results you see.
In my experience, a normal person needs around 10,000-12,000iu to raise hematocrit about 1% so 4,000iu MWF is preferred while loading. You should also monitor the RBC/hemoglobin levels on your blood tests. Hemoglobin levels can be a good indicator if you are making any progress. Hematocrit can be affected by how hydrated you are. Good luck and drink lots of water!
