A very typical case of severe cholestasis due to anabolic steroid use. Because the steroids were being used without medical supervision, the dose and actual duration of use of each preparation was unclear, but cholestasis usually arises within 4 to 12 weeks of starting a C-17 alkylated androgenic steroid. The jaundice can be severe and prolonged and accompanied by severe pruritus and marked weight loss. The serum enzymes are typically minimally elevated except for a short period immediately after stopping therapy. The pattern of enzyme elevations can be hepatocellular, cholestatic or mixed. Liver biopsy shows a “bland” cholestasis with minimal inflammation and hepatocellular necrosis. Ma Huang has also been implicated in cases of drug induced liver injury, but is associated with an acute hepatocellular pattern of injury.
Being c17alfa-alkylated anabolic, Stanozolol tablets can be hepatotoxic for you liver so do not use oral Stanozolol for more than 6-8 week, or better prefer the injectable form to pills. Negative effect of Winnie V on the level of cholesterol is also declared. So you should check out the level of cholesterol from time to time on a regular basis. Winny V as almost all anabolic steroids, inhibits your own natural testosterone production. Acne, hair loss, prostate enlargement and virilization are other side effects. As it has been already said, to avoid undesirable side effects the time and the dosage of using should be strictly supervised.
