I only abstained from kava for 1 day prior to the test, but I did take 1.5mg of Ativan the night before. As you can see, at the time of the test, the combination of daily benzodiazepine + kava + occasional alcohol had no negative impact on my results, specifically the liver. At the time of my 2015 results, I had been drinking kava daily for about 2 years. During that period, much of the kava was adulterated with tudei kava and I generally drink large doses(*Normal doses by Vanuatu standards*) of heavy or balanced kavas. I would occasionally drink alcohol when visiting friends. I abstained from kava for 3 days before my 2015 test. All results were perfectly in range but cholesterol, which was slightly out of range. Now, 5 or 6 years into drinking kava almost daily, and drinking it occasionally for the 10 years prior to that, my labs are still nearly perfect. There is almost no significant change in results from 2015 to 2018. **Probably unrelated or erroneous result: High Testosterone: 1065 (In range=250-827 ng/dL) I specifically asked for a testosterone test because I had symptoms of a testosterone deficiency and had read that low testosterone can make people susceptible to fatigue/depression/anxiety/brain fog. I was expecting to see a low result here, not a high one. 1,065 ng/dL would be on the high end for an 18 year old...I'm nearing 38, so the result is odd. I exhibit no signs of High T behavior either, quite the opposite actually. So, perhaps I'm "testosterone resistant", my body does seem to operate more resistant to many chemicals...or maybe the testosterone level itself is less important than it's actual ratio compared to other related hormones? Or it was an error, anyway, I only bring it up here because @Edward and some others had been curious about testosterone in kava drinkers. I doubt my result has anything to do with kava and I think most people would say kava would either lower testosterone or have no effect on it. We don't really know, but I thought I'd share the result anyway.
