All anabolic steroids have a tendency to reduce HDL (good) cholesterol and increase LDL (bad) cholesterol. The relative impact of an anabolic/androgenic steroid on serum lipids is dependant on the dose, route of administration (oral vs. injectable) type of steroid (aromatizable or non-aromatizable) and level of resistance to hepatic metabolism. With regards to nandrolone at a dose of 600mg per week over 10 weeks demonstrated 26% reduction in HDL cholesterol levels. This suppression is slightly greater than an equal dose of testosterone over an equal period. In other words it shows a slightly more negative impact on HDL/LDL ratio with nandrolone than with testosterone cypionate. It’s always recommended to accompany the use of this product with a low saturated fat diet and a cardiovascular exercise program.
Using a randomized "double-blind" "placebo-controlled" design, 16 experienced male bodybuilders (age: 19-44 yr) either received ND (200 (-1), intramuscularly) or placebo for 8 wk. Body composition was assessed using the four-component model, combining results from underwater weighing, dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), and deuterium dilution. Total bone mineral content and density were measured using DXA. Water compartments (extracellular water [ECW] and intracellular water [ICW]) were determined using deuterium dilution and bromide dilution.
These books make great birthday, holiday or anytime gifts for that hard-to-please fisherman! There's fisherman-friendly information about Florida's Gulf coast from Homosassa to Pensacola in the "Big Bend and Emerald Coast" book and information from Homosassa to the Everglades in the "Tampa Bay and Southwest Florida" book.
