The formation of gallstones is probably one of the major causes of blockage in the bile ducts. This also results in the formation of stones of different sizes in the gallbladder that create a blockage in the common bile duct present at the liver base. In the event the duct continues to stay blocked waste matter starts getting collected in the bloodstream as well as the system of the bile duct. You may also develop a severe infection known as ascending cholangitis, if bacteria accumulates with the blockage and retreats into the liver. If the gallstone stops between the gallbladder and the common bile duct, an infection known as cholecystitis could result.
The side effects of Anadrol can include liver damage as this steroid is highly hepatotoxic. The use of this steroid will increase liver enzyme values; you should not supplement if your liver isn’t healthy. While liver enzyme values will increase, this does not mean damage has occurred, but it is an indicator of stress that could lead to damage. If liver damage is to be avoided excess alcohol consumption must be avoided. Avoiding all alcohol isn’t a bad idea. The individual should also avoid all over the counter (OTC) medications when possible. Many OTC meds are hepatotoxic, in some cases, more so than many anabolic steroids. OTC meds should be limited to when only absolutely necessary. The individual should also ensure he does not supplement with any other hepatotoxic anabolic steroids, specifically C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa) steroids when supplementing with Anadrol. There should also be at minimum six weeks of no C17-aa steroid use after Anadrol use and total use should be limited to 4-6 weeks. If the individual can follow these rules, while enzyme values will increase with use, they should return to normal after use is discontinued and no damage will be done.
Although clearly not as effective as mechanical blood doping, or even the newer practice of erythropoietin injections, anabolic/androgenic steroids still do enhance Red Blood Cell concentrations. Whether or not this will consistently equate into an increase in aerobic capacity in healthy athletes remains a matter of speculation and debate, however their base effect on the process of erythropoiesis does not. Since bodybuilders are rarely concerned with things such as overall oxygen uptake capacity and optimal aerobic performance, no doubt this debate is not of tremendous interest to the average reader. Perhaps of greater interest though is the simple understanding of the mechanism involved in erythropoiesis, and how anabolic steroids interact with this process. I hope also evident through this piece is the more primary focus on the different agents, and the fact that the enhancement of red blood cell production is a trait shared by all anabolic/androgenic steroids. Certainly those mentions of the vast superiority of one agent such as Anadrol or Equipoise over all others should be ignored.
