Dianabol is not an extremely androgenic steroid, its androgenicity has been structurally reduced, but androgenic side effects are still possible. Such side effects of Dianabol use include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. Most men should not have a problem with such effects, response will be the final dictator, but most will remain clear. Although the odds are in your favor, such effects are brought on by Methandrostenolone being metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This is the same enzyme responsible for the reduction of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, but the overall conversion here will result in very low amounts of dihydromethandrostenolone. This tells us 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride that are often used to combat androgenic side effects will have very little if any affect on Dianabol.
Despite its reduced androgenicity, Dianabol can promote virilization symptoms in women. Such symptoms include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. It is possible for some women to use this steroid without virilization symptoms with extremely low doses, but the odds are not favorable. Most all women should choose anabolic steroids with less translating androgenic activity to meet their needs.
While it may sound overly simplistic, one of the best things you can do to combat Dianabol side-effects is to live a healthy lifestyle. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, after all, to maintain a proper blood pressure and healthy cholesterol levels you must live a healthy lifestyle. For this reason, you are encouraged to keep an eye on your diet; stay away from foods that are junky, and be sure to get in plenty of healthy fats, as such foods will greatly serve you in a tremendous fashion. Foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids will serve you well. Further, abstaining from alcohol is a great idea, as is any other activity that might bring about undue stress to the body. If you can do these things, keep your doses moderate and supplement for proper periods of time, almost all of you will be fine. We say almost all for one simple reason, we are all unique individuals, and there may be some who even when responsible have problems. Look at it this way, some of us can drink milk, while others can’t and such is the nature of life. Even so, through responsible use, Dianabol side-effects as you can see are very easy to control.
by Bill Roberts - Contrary to what many would expect, this compound is actually only a weak agonist of the androgen receptor (AR), with poor binding. It follows, then, that its value must mostly come from non-AR-mediated effects. It is therefore a Class II steroid. Since it is not very effective in activating ARs, it should be stacked with a Class I steroid that is effective in this regard, such as Primobolan , Deca Durabolin , or trenbolone acetate . There is no point in stacking it with Anadrol®, which has similar activity -- one ought to simply use the more appropriate drug. With testosterone or Deca, Danabol / Dianabol is to be preferred; with Primobolan or trenbolone acetate, Anadrol® is to be preferred (though Danabol / Dianabol is still a good choice) because Anadrol® does not aromatize. For an oral-only cycle -- something I don't recommend -- Anadrol® is the better choice in my opinion for that also, at 150 mg/day (preferably divided to 3 or 6 doses.)
