Dianabol, also called methandrenone or methandrostenolone and sold under its brand name HGH, is an anabolic androgenic steroid drug that’s largely no longer used clinically. It’s also been used non-medically for performance and body-building purposes. Currently, it is usually taken orally. The oral form of Dianabol should not be mistaken with human growth hormone, which is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland. HGH is actually a compound that stimulates the rate and strength of the body’s cells and tissues and has nothing to do with Dianabol.


Dianabol is not like other anabolic steroids like prednisone or cortisone because it does not cause the same side effects common to these substances. Commonly referred to as “the silent killer,” this steroid can cause severe liver damage in non-use or abuse. Inhaled forms of Dianabol (dianabol) have significantly greater liver toxicity compared to oral forms. Also, misuse of Dianabol can result in liver cell failure, which may lead to cirrhosis and cancer of the liver. For these reasons, only persons who are advised by their doctors to avoid the use of Dianabol are recommended to use the product with care.

Those who take oral forms of Dianabol will experience at best, mild, brief side effects. These include: shortness of breath, cold, flu-like symptoms, a change in appetite, nausea and vomiting, rash or hives, and swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, or throat. Rare but possible complications from long-term usage of Dianabol include seizures and coma. Long-term use of Dianabol can result in hypothermia, low blood sugar, fluid retention, and kidney failure.

The Food and Drug Administration approved Dianabol as a prescription strength, non-steroidal, muscle building supplement in October 1998. Although FDA recognized dianabol as safe for use, many professional athletes still do not use the drug. Some companies producing dianabol products do not include recommended dosages on their labels. Many professional and college athletes continue to use Dianabol despite the serious side effects associated with the drug. Athletes who continue to use Dianabol face the risk of damaging their body, even while satisfying their athletic desires. This is one of the reasons why professional athletes continue to undergo expensive, frequent steroid injections.

An interesting side effects story about Dianabol was published in the May 2021 issue of “The New England Journal of Medicine.” An analysis of the journal revealed that more than half of the participants reported having increased abdominal girth, which may be associated with the increased mass that the drug produces in the body. Of the participants, almost half of them said that the side effects were not noticeable, but they did report that they experienced pain when consuming the supplement. Some individuals experience increased abdominal girth without experiencing any side effects. Other people experience abdominal pain along with abdominal swelling.

Because of the FDA’s approval, manufacturers are allowed to sell dianabol pills to anyone over the age of 18. Many people mistakenly believe that these pills can help them develop huge muscles or melt fat, but these assumptions are unfounded. Although some of the dianabol pills can speed up the metabolism, they also have side effects. One of the most common side effects caused by taking these pills is the enlargement of the heart, which can cause heart problems and can even lead to death.

Dianabol, despite its infomercial status, does not increase testosterone levels in the body. Although it does enhance energy and endurance, it does not increase testosterone levels in the body. It simply speeds up the breakdown of testosterone in the system. This does not mean that taking a Dianabol low dose once per day will not have an affect on the body, as most men taking this product will not have their testosterone levels spike due to an increase in workout intensity during the dianabol cycle; therefore, the increase in testosterone is purely psychological.

Since there are numerous studies that raise questions about the efficacy of Dianabol, many men continue to be skeptical about its effectiveness. Many experts also agree that dianabol should not be taken for long periods of time, as it can lead to liver damage and other complications. Another common problem caused by taking too much of this product is liver toxicity, which can cause damage to the liver, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract. There are rare cases where individuals have died due to liver failure caused by taking too much of the supplement. Long-term use of Dianabol should be avoided by people suffering from liver problems.
