Is combining Dianabol and HGH a smart move for bodybuilders?
Many bodybuilders want to increase lean body mass and definition, with more muscle strength and endurance and an appearance of being “ripped.”
Some of these athletes have turned to the use of the steroid Dianabol and the PED HGH together.
This article will summarize the most up-to-date information about both each of these steroids and explore the cumulative benefits and possible side effect of stacking them together.
Stacking Dianabol and HGH
“Stacking” or using the anabolic steroid Dianabol together with the hormone HGH has been shown to have a synergistic effect leading to a maximizing of muscle growth and fat loss.
A risk and benefits comparison of potential side effects versus possible benefits should be carefully done by anyone considering this potent combination.
Cycles and Dosages
Typical stacking of Dianabol and HGH usually involves a beginning dosage of Dianabol of from 30 to 50 mg per day for 4 to 6 weeks along with a dosage of 3 to 6 IU of HGH per day five days on with two days off.
The chart below helps breakdown what a cycle with these two substances might look like.
Definition of Steroids
Steroids are organic compounds which naturally occur in the body.
There are three main type of steroids: Glucocorticoids, Mineralocorticoids and Androgens.
Glucocorticoids such as cortisol have anti inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties. Mineral Corticoids such as Aldosterone help control water and electrolyte balance.
Androgens refers to steroids such as Testosterone which are synthesized in the testes and promote normal male characteristics such as facial hair and the enlargement of skeletal muscle cells.
Danabol is a methylated derivative of Testosterone.
Definition of Anabolic Steroids – The term “anabolic” refers to the general class of steroids that build up organs and tissues by stimulating growth and thus increasing muscle mass.
Dianabol whose chemical name is Methandrostenolone is an anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) that is one of the most popular oral steroids.
This group of steroids includes testosterone and synthetic androgens which are structurally related to testosterone.
An old saying among body builders is “If you can’t grow on Dianabol, you can’t grow on anything.”
Dianabol is metabolized in the liver and excreted by the kidneys.
In the United States Dianabol is a Schedule 3 Drug which means it has a currently accepted medical use and is available by prescription only.
Potential Common and Serious Side Effects of Dianabol
One of the most common side effects of Dianabol is Gynecomastia which is an abnormal enlargement of male breasts.
This occurs because taking Dianabol, which is a derivative of Testosterone, increases the overall level of Testosterone causing a hormonal imbalance that causes the body to convert testosterone to the female hormone estrogen.
Another common side effect of Dianabol is severe water retention and edema also due to the increased levels of estrogen.
Also, toxic effects can include the development of hypertension which can lead to strokes, heart attacks and even blindness.
Dianabol can also cause acne and increases the production of Dihydrotestosterone which is a hormone that shrinks hair follicles which predisposes to male pattern baldness.
Liver Toxicity is one of the most dangerous potential side effects of Dianabol which is classified as a C17-Alpha Alkylated oral anabolic steroid.
This means that it is metabolized in the liver but remains basically unchanged and so can cause liver toxicity, liver cancer and even liver failure.
Another very troublesome and potentially dangerous side effect is an increase in LDL (Bad) cholesterol levels and a decrease of HDL (good) cholesterol levels both of which are risk factors for hypertension, heart attacks, heart disease and strokes.
In addition, in some rare cases , since it is excreted by the kidneys, Dianabol use can lead to what is called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) which is scarring within the kidneys that can eventually led to kidney failure.
Psychological side effects of Dianabol can include bouts of aggression, paranoia, depression and what is often called “roid rage.”
Dianabol has also been found in studies to decrease sperm count, reduce sperm motility and cause various sperm abnormalities.
Human Growth Hormone
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) which is also named Somatotrotropin is produced in and secreted by the Pituitary Gland in the brain.
It is made up of 191 amino acids and its normal function is to stimulate growth in all areas of the body.
A recombinant form of HGH is available as a prescription drug and is used to treat children with growth disorders and adults with Growth Hormone Deficiency.
It is a “stress hormone” that causes increases in blood levels of glucose and free fatty acids.
Human Growth Hormone increases lean muscle mass, decreases fat mass and can promote injury resistance.
It also encourages rapid muscle repair and increases the ability to “bounce back” quickly from injuries and fatigue.
HGH helps to increase metabolic rate and enhances energy levels. It is often used in combination with anabolic steroids to help increase strength and stamina.
Side Effects of HGH
Serious side effects of HGH include insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, hepatitis, acute renal failure, gynecomastia, joint stiffness and thickening of the jaw, fingers and toes.
It can also lead to fluid retention, an increase in blood triglyceride levels and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Dianabol and HGH both help to increase lean muscle mass, endurance and strength while decreasing body fat, fatigue and injuries.
When stacked together they act synergistically to maximize muscle growth and fat loss.
Care should be taken to be aware of the hazards and potential serious consequences of both types of steroids.
