Lipid Profile


#1

What effect does taking steroids have on one's blood lipid profile? (By steroids, I am referring to testosterone and its various forms, like dianabol, etc.) If there are effects are they positive (healthy) or negative (unhealthy)? For example, do they increase/decrease total cholesterol, HDL, triglycerides, LDL, and therefore the cholesterol ratios?

Do the effects occur quickly? What effect does long term use of steroids have on blood lipids? Do they go back to normal, pre-usage, levels when discontinued? If so, how long does this take?

Thank you for your help.

You can get all this information VERY quickly and easily from a search engine - rather than coming into a steroid forum and asking a question which is almost certain to get you flamed and receive absolutely no useful help whatsoever.

If you are trying to spark thought on this well documented and known effect in us, then you are about 20-30 years too late i think. If you are genuinely asking for knowledge then i suggest you either change the course you are on or learn to research more effectively. ither way posting here was not the best idea you have had all term.

Are you deliberately extremely patronising - is it an effort to accomplish or does this knack for talking down to intelligent strangers come totally naturally?
