Metabolic effects occurring during anabolic steroid therapy in immobilized patients or those with metastatic breast disease have included osteolytic-induced hypercalcemia. Anabolic steroids affect electrolyte balance, nitrogen retention, and urinary calcium excretion. Edema, with and without congestive heart failure, has occurred. Decreased glucose tolerance requiring adjustments in hyperglycemic control has been noted in diabetic patients. Significant increases in low density lipoproteins (LDL) and decreases in high density lipoproteins (HDL) have occurred. [ Ref ]
For the athlete looking for an edge a dosing of 20mg per day will generally prove to be the minimal with 40mg per day being far more optimal. While 40mg per day will provide a nice boost in-terms of overall athletic performance if you’re really looking to transform your physique you will probably need a far greater dose. As this steroid will not provide massive amounts of lean tissue most bodybuilders will not mess with it and if they do they will necessarily take massive amounts making it a poor choice for off-season periods of growth. The dieting bodybuilder however might find a more suitable use for the steroid but again there are more efficient choices for this individual. In either case, as it is an anabolic steroid that is hepatic total use should not extend past the 8 week mark but many will find 6 weeks to be just about perfect.
For the female Turinabol user 5mg per day would be the starting point with 10mg per day being the absolute max . Most females will need to start at 5mg per day to see how they react but understand if you approach the 10mg mark you will increase the probability of virilization. While 5mg per day may not sound like much it is important to remember on a per milligram basis Turinabol appears to be much stronger in women than it is in men meaning lower doses will have a far reaching and pronounced affect.
Alternatively boldenone could be stacked with other non-aromatising drugs such as primobolan (methenolone) or masteron (drostanolone) where the small amount of estrogen produced by boldenone is beneficial and the resultant gains should be lean and more easily kept. Given the long undecylenate ester (11 carbons) normally attached to boldenone, injecting the hormone twice a week is more than sufficient, although favourable for stable blood levels over injecting once per week. If one purely wants to use boldenone for its appetite enhancing properties, lower doses of 400mg/week should suffice for this purpose, although the full benefit of boldenone in my opinion is not achieved at these lower doses. Some example cycles are outlined below (I recommend in all cases 500IUs HCG is administered weekly from week 1 throughout the cycle as this will significantly aid recovery by helping to stop shut-down from fully occurring):
