Anabolic steroids can cause the development of acne. However, the extent to which it is experienced can be due to a number of varying factors, with the particular steroids and exact dosages used being primary. The skin´s sebaceous glands have a particularly high affinity to Dihydrotestosterone, which is an androgen the body naturally produces from testosterone via the enzyme 5-alpha Reductase. Increased sebaceous gland activity promotes oily skin which can combine with bacteria and dead skin (normal wear and tear) eventually causing pores to become clogged more quickly than the body can cleanse them. This of course, is preventable by using only particular steroids, cleansing the skin regularly, and perhaps using a topical anti-androgen.
The Oxandrolone hormone does not carry any estrogenic related side effects. It does not aromatize and cannot lead to gynecomastia or water retention due to increases in estrogen levels. It further carries no progestin related activity, which again supports no estrogenic related side effects. Due to water retention being impossible with this steroid, this will decrease the risk of high blood pressure. Excess water retention can promote high blood pressure. Some steroids that do not aromatize can lead to high blood pressure, such as Trenbolone , but Anavar is rarely associated with this trait.
No doctor able to help me with my salicylate sensitivities thus far. Trying IGF sublingual cautiously at 6 drops each day, for last 3 days. Healing of cracked & bleeding painful hands in 3 days. Will occasional use for such symptoms be detrimental for a woman whose diet is salicylate restricted? I am under the care of a functional medicine professional who said I need not be concerned about the increase of testosterone from bovine colostrum because it only affects males. I use it only for occasional digestive disturbances (cramps & diarrhea). Salicylates inhibit/interfere with IGF P70 according to http:///content/275/49/
