NAC Benefits: HDL and More

#22
Thanks, seaexplorer. Are you taking a higher dose of testosterone plus HCG anabolics?
Thanks for the reply Nelson and for the link. I will check it out next ...

I just started testosterone injections of 70mg 2X per week plus 400mg 2X a week of HCG. Today is actually the first day of this treatment for me

I've been taking the NAC for about 4 weeks now. I started that the day after these first labs. Now off to read the link you gave. My HDL is stubbornly low

Well, here's my 3 month update after taking NAC 600mg 2x per day. My HDL looks like it actually went down about 10% (34 vs 31). My Triglycerides though improved and went down by about 22% (159 vs 123) which is probably the first time in 5 years they've been under 150. Uggh, my HDL though is just super stubborn. I'll keep taking the NAC but I think I need look into some type of different exercise routines, so that's what I will look to change next. I'm not sure what type of exercise is best for improving HDL. I read that endurance cardio is good or bad and interval cardio is good, so honestly I'm not sure and that's my next task to learn here.
