Help I have a friend who is a gym goer Im not sure of his quantity or how long he has been taking steroids, but stopped recently because he had really bad neck pain. No dr or scan, ultrasound etc showed anything. Put on huge pain killer amounts didnt help alot but felt after about six weeks some relief. Until today when he thinks a prior knee issue has flared up. If this a result of steroid abuse how long before it heals? Im pretty sure he wont touch them again. He can handle all over aches and pains but these last two injuries have had him off work.
Hey I’m 18 and have been lifting since I was in 7th grade and am now a senior. I’m interested In the dball cycle over the dianabol but have a few questions. The first question is do I need to take a test booster with it? Although it is recommended Ik if you mess with your body’s natural production at a young age it can screw up your production of it. My next question is about after you finish it. I’m seeing stuff about if the effects last and what I’m asking is if the dball effects of muscle growth wear off or do you lose the muscle you gained. What iv got from reading is if you just take the pills daily without test booster which is my option I’m really wanting to take, after my cycle runs out I won’t just lose muscle or stop growth will I? Thanks for you’re time and get back to me asap as I’m looking to order it soon
All C17- alpha alkylated oral steroids have displayed at least some level of hepatotoxicity in studies, and what is very important to make note of is the fact that in many of these studies, doses utilized were medical therapeutic prescription doses that are generally doses of oral steroids that are far lower than those the doses of oral steroids required for performance and physique enhancement. A perfect example to examine is Dianabol, as it is without a doubt the most popular oral anabolic steroid. Studies have demonstrated that Dianabol doses of 15mg per day or more displayed elevated bromosulphalein levels (an indication of increased hepatic strain), and at doses of 10mg or less per day displayed minimal hepatic strain  . This would indicate that Dianabol’s hepatotoxicity will always increase in relation to the dose used, and is the case for all oral steroids that happen to be C17-alpha alkylated. In terms of how the doses in the aforementioned study relate to real world bodybuilding doses, one could easily see how liver toxicity could potentially become an issue seeing as though the minimum beginner dose for bodybuilding purposes for something like Dianabol is no less than 25mg per day on average.
