      If one were to take all appropriate preventative measures (AI, prostate supps,etc), can elevated of Test lead to adverse health conditions?

      The AI alone will cause health issues.

      it depends how high. hemocrit can be controlled if you donate blood frequently. some people hemocrit won't go out of normal range even if taking high doses for years. how high of a dose and for how long. there was a study not too long ago where men were put on a high dose of test I believe around 500mgs for 6 months and all blood work including PSA was still in normal range. You might want to do some google searching for the study. I don't think anybody could really answer your question though. It many comes down to your genetics and lifestyle factors otherwise.

      at 200mg/wk which is high, my hematocrit stays right over top of scale. not much over, but over.

      Are you referring to lipid profile issues?

      Same here, well, mine hovers around 50 (not too bad)

      The blood letting idea is looking more and more appealing!

      Venous thrombosis (clots) and increased chance for heart attack due to the high viscosity of the blood

      again the AI issue is based on person to person. some peoples lipids can be thrown off by a low dose of a AI while the next guy can take more or a higher dose and still be within range. it varies from person to person. the only way to tell is by bloodwork.

      Yes and that's not a small issue. Estrogen has an important role in overall health.

      I hear ya.

      Lipid profile is not a concern. As a matter of fact, it's rather pristine (Thank God).

      Probably in large part due to the cardio, low carb regimen and sizeable doses of a wide array of healthy fats.
