    Gear-induced change of skin color

    Can anyone explain the reasoning that gear produces a reddish/brownish/bronzish hue to the color of skin. My appearance has taken on a sort of orangish/bronze-like tone over the course of the past several months. It appears as if I'm hitting the tanning booth (I don't) and/or I have some Jan-Tan bronzer all over my body. I know this is due to the gear but what is the medicinal/scientific reason??

    I notice most guys including my self start to get more red looking. I always through it was due to increase RBC in the blood. I'm just guessing... but I do notice it.

    I read this effect of the gear somewhere but I can't remember where nor can I remember the details and actual way the gear does it. You might be onto something with increased RBC production.

    Got it checked 2 weeks ago. While I was relaxed, it was Pre-hypertension range: 157/91.

    Hemoglobin. Go donate blood - hubby has to now that he's on HRT or his goes too high.
    Wondering where to start? Confused? "Homework 1" will get you started.

    Think you're ready for the "next step"? Take this test.

    I tried to do just this and they wouldn't take it because my B.P. was 2 points too high.

    Do something that helps you... ahhh "relax" - then go back. Maybe load up on some extra potassium and have an Epsom bath first.

    I'm noticing this too, especially after a workout. My upper chest especially gets pretty red. Even when I'm not lifting though I look kinda tan

    Actually, you're right. The prior appt BP was 133/90 which he called Pre-Hypertensive but the recent 157/91 was considered Hypertensive.

    I've read about it in more than one source and a few other users I know and/or see also experience this phenomenon. Turning reddish/orangish right after workout doesn't count. It's the state of always having the bronze/orangish tone that concerns/interests me. I get full lab work in a few weeks - will post results and ask doctor to explain the relationship between skin color and gear (if he can).

    I would think an issue with the liver would manifest itself in a jaundiced sort of way with eyes, skin, urine possibly as well as tiredness. None of these currently happening.

This and more I claim from each victim or new toy as I have come to think of them lately.I feel tha power of tha Voodoo all my Jamaican and Zulu forefathers died to keep secret and pass into me. This is my birthright, my gift if you will. I am tha VooDoo child, tha dream and tha nightmare, Tha villian and tha hero,tha bringer and tha destroyer.I am tha unwalkable road,I am tha unswimable ocean, tha unclimbable mountain, tha storm that there is no shelter to protect you from, I am tha final thought. You ask why am I like this...................... Because violence keeps me calm MUTHAFUCKA !!!!! I am tha muthafuck'n Serial Killa and I can smell your blood from here,Too hard for your Momma, Too hip for your Daddy Fuck Milk, Got TREN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
