As we discussed above, Dianabol carries a strong aromatizing nature, and is a C17-aa anabolic steroid; as such, its side-effects will revolve around these factors. As an aromatizing steroid, this means there can be a testosterone to estrogen conversion, and if estrogen levels go to high it can lead to some complications. When estrogen levels increase, the hormone can attach to the receptors and cause gynecomastia (male-breast enlargement) and it can also promote excess water retention and high blood pressure; Dbol is notorious for promoting high blood pressure. Needless to say, if you already suffer from high blood pressure you should not touch this steroid, but if it's healthy you'll need to ensure it stays this way. For this reason, in-order to combat and avoid these estrogenic side-effects of Dbol, the use of an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) is often advised. It shouldn't be too hard to see how this can help; after all, an AI inhibits aromatase, but it goes a step further by reducing the body's total estrogen levels. Of course, and this cannot be overstressed, you must keep your doses at a responsible level; most will need at least 20mg per day for any anabolic promotion, with a maximum dosing of 50mg per day. It should be noted; if you've never used this steroid before, you should not start with a high end dose; start low and see how you respond.
When you supplement with Dbol, and this goes for all anabolic steroids it is imperative you live a healthy lifestyle that promotes the continuation of good health. If your blood pressure and cholesterol levels are healthy prior to supplementation, and you shouldn't be supplementing otherwise, continue to live in a way that promotes the continuation of such healthy levels; in-fact, give it more attention. This should not be all that hard to do; after all, you're supplementing for the purpose of performance enhancement, and an unhealthy lifestyle does not promote this end. You bet, this means avoiding excess or heavy alcohol consumption, but it also needs to be avoided due to the C17-aa nature of this steroid as discussed above. Heavy alcohol consumption is extremely hard on the liver, and you don't need the added stress; more so, alcohol itself is the most anti-performance thing you could ever put into your body. While you should avoid excess alcohol, and all alcohol if you want to do things right, you are also encouraged to avoid all over the counter (OTC) medications when possible. Many OTC meds carry extremely strong hepatotoxic natures, some even more so than many anabolic steroids, and their use must be limited to only when truly needed.
