I need to gain some weight to be more competitive for the season, but I wouldn't want my efforts to inhibit or obstruct the DoDMERB process. Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks.
the person making the medical appointment with DS told him that if he was taking any protein supplements to stop until after the appointment. It can cause unusual test results and that = problems that need explanations, and on and on into a bad spiral. Plus, as I understand it, this stuff is fairly unregulated. One is relying on the representations of some company without much verification. You may be getting other 'bulk up' ingredients that you are not aware of, and that may lead to unwanted positive results for a variety of street pharmaceuticals. So my advice is stop taking all that stuff now for as much time as possible before your medical exam. If your exam is in the next week or two, consider rescheduling. As for your weight, try peanut butter sandwiches.
