Hi am a powerlifter and am on testosterone eathanate at 300mg week low dose "am just asking will Dianabol at 10mg day raise my LDL levels up bad?

Probably not: I can't approve the use of medicines for athletic enhancement, but the real question is whether you are willing to take the increased risk of a heart attack or stroke for the competitive advantage. I can't quantitate the risk for you, but I'd like to share with you that this medication poses a greater danger of your doing something impulsively that you'll regret. Trust you don't smoke. Good luck. ...Read more

I ve low testosterone , but normal periods, i heard that can cause bone loss, how much calcium and vit d per day I should take, ? I am 38 yr old femal

Relax: You're supposed to have relatively low testosterone, after all, you're a female. If you're having normal menses, you're protected against significant bone loss until menopause. However, if you're caucasian or asian or have chronic illness (liver, kidney, rheumatoid arthritis, etc) or take anti seizure meds, steroids or the like you're more prone. Exercise, take calcium (diet) and vitamin d. ...Read more

I m 19 years old my hight is 5ft 4 in...I want to increase my hight ...How can I do so.

Unlikely to happen: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist & hand can yield a bone maturity. When you have reached bony maturity, you are done. ...Read more
