Getting a blood test.

I'd like to get blood work done as I'm running a heavy cycle at the moment, 2g test, 1g eq, 450mg deca, 70mg dbol per day.  I'm growing really well off that lot and haven't got any visible sides apart from bloat. 
 
Anyone had blood work done on the NHS?  Would they do it if I went to the docs and told them I was running a lot of AAS and asked for one? 
 
I'm not in a position to pay for it privately as I haven't got the £!
 
Cheers!

    Thats some cycle mate. Costly too I'm sure.
    Do you always run such high doses?
    Not from England but I'm sure I've read on here before that some needle exchanges will do blood tests for you.

    Thanks buddy.

    Yeah it's a lot but I have a powerlifting comp in 2 weeks so decided to up it to that for the 4 weeks leading up to the comp.

    I normally cruise on around a gram and blast on around 2-3g.  This is my first time past the 4g work.  The results strength (and size) wise have been crazy.

    I will pop into the needle exchange and ask!  Thanks mate.

    You wont get a blood test at a needle exchange you will have to pay for it.If yu cut back on all those meds yo could pay for it yourself,cruising on a gram of test, thats not a cruise.e VEN IF YOU NORMALY TAKE 3 GRAMES PLUS/WEEK.!! What you are asking is ,if i spend all my cash on taking steroids will the tax payer pick up the bill for m y blood test.Like i said why not try pct and off for once and save to pay for yopur own blood test.

    I wasnt having a go just someone pointed it out to me when i said i got needles from the drug project and didnt buy my own.Also by doing this or telling a gp we are being recorded as a statistic of steroid users,and then health ministers and lobbeyists can use these stats to try and get a change in uk steroid law.Something we dot want!! Also Sam you do heavy doses mate and as you get older this may well lead to serious heart probs,all the best with the comp though mate.

    Another good point there mate.  I haven't been to the docs yet, just thought I'd ask.  Privately blood work is circa £500 and I haven't got that sort of cash. 

    I actually buy my pins and syringes from medisave, I've never even been to the exchange.  If I go in lean at 18 stone it's obvious what they're for and as you say I certainly don't want a change in the steroid laws within the UK.

    Yeah I realise the doses are high.  There is no denying they work though.  I'll get vids from the comp and post them up on MT.  Hoping for a 200kg raw bench at 110kg bodyweight.

    Sam I've read on here that you can simply go to your doctor for a blood test as apparently they can't refuse it. From reading on here if you go in and say a friend or family member has been diagnosed with diabetes or something like that and your concerned and want to get yourself checked out they have to give you one. I'm not 100% on this as it's only what I've read in threads here but it certainly makes sense. If you act genuinely concerned about your health and well being to a GP I can't see them refusing to take a sample of blood and then test it?

    Thats not a particularly impressive bench at that weight in an untested fed, and you aren't 18stone lean either....

    You will be having some serious health problems with a cruise dose of 1g, I know a few PLers, some have held WRs anbd they haven't used close to those doses.

    You need to realise that health is more important than anything. Can't afford a blood test to see if you are causing yourself long-term damage but can afford a cycle. Priorities in order?

    That said, go to GP and ask him for a blood test. Most will oblige.

    Sam you get flamed with whatever posts you put up mate. True you run big courses but some people are just pain naive. 

    also most people that take 3g a week dont actually tell the truth about their dosages IME.

    anyway I went to the docs and said I was taking steroids first thing she done was to give me a full blood panel.

    if you don't mind the doc knowing then would go their first.

    and a 200kg bench at 110 is ****ing good mate.  Not a record setting but the uk raw record is circa 235.

    I was always under the impression if you told your doctor you were taking steroids it went down on your medical record for life making it impossible to obtain life insurance and health plans???

    Oh I am well aware of the doses used, but these are not for prolonged periods of time. People who bang in 4-5g will have a good few months on TRT, and these guys have checks quarterly.

    But then your health, your body. You can justify it all you want but at the end of the day if you have a heart attack you will wish you had those check ups.

    Have a read on Professional Muscle if you want to read some stories about the health side of things, or you could just bury your head in the sand.

    Don't mention AAS mate, they'll **** you off 99% of the time.

    Go about it one of two ways

    a) tell them someone close to you has died, pref a relative. Ask for a full blood count test and a hormone/thyroid test as you're worried about your health, that's the method i used.

    or b) schedule yourself for the hepatitis jabs, you do 2/3 jabs a month apart and at the end they give you a blood slip with the boxes all unticked and hepatitis written on to the 3rd box. Just tick the other boxes you want testing.... my mum gets regular blood tests and she just ticks extra boxes willy nilly (she's on 3g a week....
    LOL JKS she's anaemic)... they never ask questions and just take more blood.

    Worked for my brother more recently as well.


    If all else fails go private, think it's about 150 for the full test.
