As a non-aromatizing androgen, dihydrotestosterone is extremely potent. Aromatization refers to the conversion of testosterone or anabolic steroids into estrogen. High estrogenic activity causes bloating, acne, water retention and oily skin. As dihydrotestosterone does not aromatize even at high dosages, users do not face the aforementioned side-effects. Lack of water retention also has a hardening effect on muscle tissue, in bodybuilders. Being a powerful androgen, dihydrotestosterone is also responsible for a shift in the estrogen-testosterone ratio in the body. Due to its predominant androgenic component, the steroid has a stimulating effect on the adreno-pituitary functions, and causes neurological excitation in the ‘sexual orientation areas of the brain’. This in turn, spikes sex drive in males.
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.
