Good Day, Y'All !!
Been away for a while, we have been enjoying the great Fall weather down here. Life in general, sex life in particular, Everything is working FINE.
My lover and I just got back from our week in the TN mountains, what a sexy week of isolation and pure adult fun that was...
But, to the matter at hand: Mr. PeakT asked me to post my lipids numbers. My SottoPelle Dr. put me on Niacin last July 2014 to start getting my lipids
numbers down. It took about 7 weeks to get up to 1,000 milligrams of niacin a day, and I have been taking 2 grams of l-Citrulline, and 2 grams of
l-Arginine, and 5,000 IU D3 daily since last February under her watch. That's for NO supply to the vasculature, makes for better erections and has
endothelial healing capabilities.
Now, this is only 90 days so far, and I have another blood draw for mid-cycle monitoring in mid-January 2015. That should show even better numbers.
I have my HRT dialed in, my E2 is in control, and the LabCorp lipid panel shows 3 months of Niacin intervention has my
HDL raised from 43 to 58 mg/dL;
triglycerides dropped 144 to 85 mg/dL; (My Dr was stunned at this drop in numbers)
LDL stayed the same at 100 mg/dL;
total cholesterol dropped to 180 mg/dL;
Estradiol (via Roche ECLIA method) is 16.1 pg/mL....(but that is due to use of AI anastrozole .25 mg/week)....
And, yes I definitely feel that E2 control in the 20 to 35 range is CRITICALLY important. I'm definitely sure I feel and function better
when my E2 is somewhere between 15 to 25 pg/mL. That's another thread, though....
The Niacin I use is plain old niacin, 250 mg capsules from a local real health and sports nutrition store. Sometimes, I get a good flush
but it doesn't bother me. Sometimes I take the big dose when my lover and I get together. The niacin flush during sex is mind-blowing.
I am working my way up to 1,500 to 2,000 mg per day per my Dr. direction. She is a firm believer in vitamin supplementation for health,
but will give an Rx as needed. She draws from both worlds to help her patients. She is just wonderful in her attention to monitoring my condition.
OK, that's the short story.
Comments and questions are welcome. I shall try to answer as quickly as I can.
Hope Y'All are doing well, go do something FUN this weekend !! Yes, we are grillin' and chillin' on the back porch, as we usually do.
Cheers! - Sam D.
