If LVH from AAS use is nothing to worry about, is there a downside to my low dose TE OR TPP/NPP year round? I know that there are some individuals that have to be on some type of high-dose AAS 24/7 for many years and even decades, examples being Jose Canseco, Hulk Hogan, and Superstar Billy Graham, with each of these individuals not having any type of heart related ailment that I am currently aware of. On the other hand though, the autopsy report of Eddie Guerrero noted that one of his reasons for death was acute heart failure, so I don’t know if this may have been attributed to AAS induced LVH or not.
Injectable steroids are injected into muscle tissue, not into the veins. They are slowly released from the muscles into the rest of the body, and may be detectable for months after last use. Injectable steroids can be oil-based or water-based. Injectable anabolic steroids which are oil-based have longer half-life than water-based steroids. Both steroid types have much longer half-lives than oral anabolic steroids. And this is proving to be a drawback for injectables as they have high probability of being detected in drug screening since their clearance times tend to be longer than orals. Athletes resolve this problem by using injectable testosterone early in the cycle then switch to orals when approaching the end of the cycle and drug testing is imminent.
