Dianabol Side Effects
Like most anabolic/ androgenic steroids Dianabol comes with some serious side effects. First and foremost, it is a very hepatoxic (liver-damaging) substance, and must be used responsibly in order to prevent liver damage. But this is not the only serious Dianabol side effects: it also aromatizes very rapidly causing water retention and more serious issues like gynocomastia. Prior to examining more unwanted side effects, let’s cover some basic ground rules. Use of this steroid and any other steroid is strictly for adults. No children or adolescents should ever use steroids, since their bodies are unable to manage the large increase of hormones that can cause permanent damage to an underdeveloped body. Individuals that have hypertension or cholesterol issues should not use steroids as the effects could permanently damage their health. Dianabol or any other steroid should only be used by healthy adult men. As with any side effect there is a chance the user won’t experience any negative side effects at all. But living in the real world side effects are a endgame that needs to be address.
The most significant Dianabol side effects is an increase in blood pressure. This is why men with pre existing high blood pressure should not include it in their regimen. Even healthy males without high blood pressure can put themselves at risk with an elevated dose of Dianabol and a sloppy diet. It is known that Dianabol can lower your good cholesterol(HDL) and increase your bad cholesterol(LDL). That is why it is recommend to carefully monitor your dosage, and to steer clear of foods high in triglycerides or are generally unhealthy.
Another possible Dianabol side effects is Gynecomastia, male breast enlargement. This side effect is rather uncommon but can occur in high dosages or prolonged use. It is also well known for retention of water which if not managed will account for much of the users gains. This side effects are made possible by its ability to aromatize. Aromatization is a process that occurs via the aromatase enzyme, which converts testosterone into estrogen. As aromatization takes place, estrogen levels increase, causing the negative side effects mentioned above. You can manage these symptoms by monitoring your daily dose, especially if taking more than 30mg per day and supplementing an aromatase inhibitor such as Arimidex. Aromatase inhibitors can provide great protection and help get you through your cycles with better success and avoid these particular negative side effects.
Let’s discuss some negative side effects that are more likely to occur with elevated dosages and prolonged use. Much like Parabolan one of the most dangerous Dianabol side effects is liver toxicity. This can be the most pernicious side effects, as liver damage quite often does not manifest itself until symptoms are very severe and possibly irreversible. As a C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa) anabolic steroid, Dianabol brings with it a high probability of hepatoxicity. Alcohol and OTC pain medications should be avoided when on Dianabol, being they put added stress on an already stressed liver. Another negative Dianabol side effect is suppression of testosterone production which leads to atrophy of the testicles. In order to remain healthy and successfully mitigate against this unwanted side effect, you must engage in some level of testosterone supplementation while cycling. It doesn’t matter what sort of testosterone you choose, as long as you supply your body with enough of this primary androgen to function properly. It will NOT keep your testicles from atrophying, but you’ll have enough testosterone for your body to function normally. Luckily, after Dianabol use is discontinued, and all steroids have left the bloodstream, natural testosterone production will resume, and the testicles will return to their normal state.
