Blood Donation

Hello guys. My question is if you do 1-2 cycles each year of steroids how to lower increased RBC hematocrit levels? I have heard it increases the chances of stroke heart problems. Steroids like boldenone especially. Is donating blood the only option to lower RBC count? Or RBC decreases automatically offcycle?

It will decrease off cycle. If you want to know if you should do a blood letting, then get a CBC panel done.

Everything SHOULD go back to normal. But you really should be getting routine bloodwork anyway.
