In brief: A good anabolic

Deca is only available from a limited number of compounding pharmacies nationally, but tends to be helpful either alone or combined with test cypionate in hypogonadal males, especially if you have joint problems.
It tends to act as a "joint lubricant." beware to watch serum prolactin levels with deca. If elevated they can be controlled with 2.5 mg bromocryptine at hs avoiding "deca dick.".

In brief: Most docs will not

Anabolic steroids can stimulate the creation of muscle fibers when associated with diet and exercise.
This would be an off label and probably illegal use of a controlled substance. Deca-durabolin has been used with aids patients who have muscle wasting.
