Nandrolone decanoate is used in the treatment of renal anemia (hemoglobin and cell mass increase), diabetic retinopathy, mayo dystrophy, Werdnig-Hoffmann spinal amyotrophy, breast cancer, glomerulonephritis, extensive burns, osteoporosis.
Nandrolone decanoate is not indicated in patients that suffer from cancer of the prostate, breast cancers (possibly men or perhaps female), those that allergies to anabolic steroid drugs, individuals with cancer and also large levels of calcium supplement, pregnant.
Nandrolone decanoate can be administered only by intramuscular injection.
In anemia treatment (iron preparations concurrently with) the optimal dose in men is 200 - 400 mg, (females – 100 - 200 mg) one time per week; to increase anabolic processes – 100 - 400 mg (women – 100 - 200 mg) once in 1 - 4 weeks. The treatment length is (at an interval of 1 - 4 weeks between injections) - up to 12 weeks, repeated cure - above 8 weeks after the last administration. The cure is followed by the background of a diet rich in protein.
Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid. It works by increasing the growth of certain tissues in the body and has been shown to improve the oxygen-carrying ability of blood by increasing hemoglobin and the size of red blood cells.
The positive effects of the Nandrolone include muscle growth, appetite stimulation and increased red blood cell production and bone density. Clinical studies have shown it to be effective in treating anemia, osteoporosis and some forms of neoplasia including breast cancer, and also acts as a progestin-based contraceptive.
Because nandrolone is not broken down into DHT, the deleterious effects common to most anabolic steroids on the scalp, skin, and prostate are lessened to a degree; but is rather broken down to the much weaker androgen dihydro nandrolone. The lack of alkylation on the 17α-carbon drastically reduces the drug's liver toxicity. Estrogenic effects resulting from reaction with aromatase are also reduced due to lessened enzyme interaction, but effects such as gynaecomastia and reduced libido still occur in larger doses because of other mechanisms.
