Human Growth Hormone’s metabolism effects include its major effect of shifting the human body’s preference of energy source from carbohydrates to lipids (fats). As a result, Human Growth Hormone use will commonly result in rising blood sugar levels (known as a diabetogenic effect). This effect is, of course, dose-dependent and directly correlated with doses. Excessive Human Growth Hormone doses or periods of use can possibly result in the beginning of type-2 diabetes. However, through its manipulation of energy sources from carbohydrates to body fat as the preferred source, the fat loss effects can be very dramatic and as a result will also decrease cholesterol levels. Human Growth Hormone also tends to deplete potassium, phosphorous, and sodium levels, which should be kept in mind by the user (proper supplementation with these minerals is advised especially with higher Human Growth Hormone doses). Human Growth Hormone also tends to have a lowering effect on circulating levels of T3 (thyroid hormone) , which can temporarily disrupt metabolism. Once again, this is a dose-dependent effect.
Two other primary Dianabol side effects include high blood pressure and inefficient cholesterol levels. For those who already have high blood pressure this is a steroid you must avoid and if youre predisposed to a high blood pressure condition you are advised to seek alternative steroids without question. Those who have a healthy blood pressure and who do not overdo the dose will generally be fine; in-fact, its not uncommon to see an athlete supplement with 30mg-50mg of Dbol a day and never see his blood pressure go up.
