Bloodwork

I wanted some help interpreting my blood work. I paid like 400 bucks to get 20 different tests done, including male hormones and testosterone, metabolic panel, vitamins, etc. I started a cut about a month prior, with 2k calories and at least 160-200g protein per day. Dropped from 203 to 194~ around the time I got the results done (currently sitting under 192). I'm 30, male, 5ft7, lifting since 23, never did a proper cut before, and my PR's for lifts are 545 squat, 325 bench, 240 overhead press, 545~ deadlift (same as squat basically). I aim aiming to cut down to 170-175 at least, so I can get a lean physique. So far my strength levels haven't dropped since I began cutting despite losing 10lbs of body weight, my stomach has gotten smaller. I am not at my peak strength for squat, deadlift, or overhead press. But my bench is sitting at 315 right now.

      Why no one cares about PSA of 23?
      Look at the reference intervals!
      You should go to urologist asap

          Prostate specific antigen.
          I have no idea what "23 L" means, bet if it's 23 ng/ml it means your prostate cells are multiplying at a huge speed. It can mean cancer

        Ah, no, total psa on the upper slide is normal. I'm not from USA so it's very confusing

    Your LDL is pretty fricked, not helped by your low HDL.

    Your homocysteine is high which also isn’t good for your heart health.

    CRP is good so that helps.

    Do more cardio, eat better, no carnivore shit, less saturated fat and see if that helps at all. If not go to the doctor and get a statin.

    Your creatinine is high from taking creatine I assume and probably nothing to worry about.

    You have hyperthyroidism so go to a doctor.

      thanks for the feedback. I dont take any creatine supplements. I do eat a lot of meat but based on tracking my diet for over a month, I dont get more than 90grams of fat per day and sometimes less. The meat I eat is usually healthy and higher quality. The other day I had some grassfed sirloin and 1.5 sausages. Had some liver the day before. Also I occasionally have shrimp and various kinds of fish. I cant lower my protein intake because its necessary for me to maintain my strength and muscle, especially during a cut. Ive tried to find ways to get more protein besides meat. Im eating a lot of yogurt and kefir daily, a little bit of milk (1cup per day) with my protein shake, and no more than two scoops of whey (25%-35% of my daily protein intake). I am trying to eat more salads and micronutrient rich foods, but I dont normally eat much grains. At most some sourdough bread as part of a sandwich occassionally. I eat rice, buckwheat, quinoa, and mashed potatoes as a side with meals. I also have started having 3 eggs and bacon for breakfast lately. To what extent will the cholestoral and homocystine improve when I drop down to 170ish body weight?

      Also, how do you know I have hyperthyroidism? what are the signs and symptoms?

      LDL doesn't matter much, but triglycerides and remnant cholesterol (=total-ldl-hdl) may not be worthless risk indicators.

      your T3 uptake is a bit high, but all your other thyroid values are within range, so I wouldn't worry.
      you should probably try to get your homocysteine down a bit. glycine (especially trimethylglycine), folate, and riboflavin will help with that.

      eating less saturated fat from healthy red meat and whole dairy may lower your LDL a bit, but it won't lower risk of heart disease. the only reason why (red) meat can be bad is if you only eat muscle meat and no organs or skin. muscle meat contains methionine, which gets converted to homocysteine. but organs like liver contain a lot of vitamins like folate, which lowers homocysteine. and skin contains collagen, which has very high amounts of glycine and serine (which also lower homocysteine).
      if you're interested in diabetes/heart disease risk, you'll also want to do blood tests for fasting insulin and HbA1c.

        LDL may not, but ApoB does and its carried by LDL particles.

        Not an exact measure but high LDL is 100% a risk factor for heart disease. There is no debate. Will high LDL always cause heart disease? No. But its certainly a risk factor, just like high blood pressure, high CRP, etc.

          there is plenty of debate. only studies from statin makers show LDL to be a risk factor for heart disease. independent studies show almost no correlation between LDL and heart disease. and even (some) correlation isn't enough for something to be useful as a risk factor. furthermore, reducing LDL by reducing intake of unprocessed meat and whole dairy does nothing to lower risk of heart disease. reducing LDL by reducing intake of processed junk food and palm-oil rich cake/muffins/whatever does reduce risk of heart disease. but you shouldn't conflate the two.

            Lmao the landmark 20 year long 1948 Framingham Heart study was funded by statins??

            No. Of course it wasn’t.

                LDL correlation with heart disease risk was only significant in Framingham for people with cholesterol >300 (increased risk) or <150 (low risk). and when they reached age 50, as cholesterol dropped their mortality increased.
                but none of this even really matters, since there have been so many other studies done over the years that basically show no correlation between (LDL) cholesterol and risk of heart disease. and even for people with genetically high LDL (Familial Hypercholesterolemia), their LDL seems to only be correlated with risk of heart disease if they also have a number of abnormal clotting factors. those with FH that don't have abnormal clotting factors (but do have high LDL) are not at increased risk of heart disease.

                You are wrong.

                Low cholesterol and higher mortality is because illness and cancers utilize cholesterol and hence it lowers. The sicker you are, the lower your LDL is going to be. This does not mean high LDL is protective.

                Show me “all” these studies. I’ve probably seen them and they are all shitty. They are not good studies.

        A post with actual correct information. Good to see. This Anon knows their stuff. OP should eat more organic, white potato, rice, sourdough , all need to be with no pesticides and unfortified. This might also get Triglyerides down. Drinking only high quality water is also important
        OP should look into TMG (Trimethylglycine) supplement. It is an amino acid. Supports healthy homocysteine levels, and promotes normal methylation processes. This might actually help him a tone to do for a little bit.

    yeah it looks like someone who eating a ton of protein, there's really nothing surprising
    your t3 uptake is messed up because your thyroid is overloaded from trying to get rid of the ammonia that comes from the metabolism of protein

    May possibly have thyroid issues but likelyhood is you're overweight and your biomarkers will improve as your weight drops.
