    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.
