sustanon and deca are negatives for cd4?
Dec 28, 2009

nelson hello have a question. I'm using deca durabolin 300 mg per week and Sustanon 250 mg every 2 weeks. this negatively affects my cd4?

Response from Mr. Vergel

They wont affect your CD4 cells, but your hormonal axis will be impaired when you get off and you will suffer anabolic steroid induced hypogonadism, which is not a good thing. Your body's own testosterone production shuts down on nandrolone and testosterone, and when people get off those compounds they remain with low testosterone for weeks and sometimes months. Depression, fatigue, sexual dysfunction and loss of muscle mass are common during that time. Some men never return to normal testosterone after they stop anabolics.

Just make sure that you stay on testosterone replacement with a testosterone gel if you can after you finish this treatment so that you do not have to crash due to hypogonadism.
