When an androgen (either your personal natural testosterone or an anabolic steroid you have actually taken) binds to a receptor inside the cell, it provides the cell a message to do something. When it comes to testosterone, one of the messages it sends is to enhance nitrogen retention, permitting your body to make use of more healthy protein as well as build more muscle. Now that’s a very streamlined variation of exactly how all of it jobs, but it’s essentially just what takes place and why steroids allow you to gain muscle.
Thanks. When I reduced from 4o to 35 I noticed I got a slight temperature again so GP suggested staying on 40mg while I was on holiday. Bloods history CRP was 3 on 23 June, 12 on 7 July, 25 on 22 July, 13 on 1 Aug and 1 on 11 Aug. Looking back, I reduced from 60mg to 40mg on 1 July so perhaps that's why the CRP went up and I felt rubbish. It will be interesting to see what my CRP does in a months time after two 5mg reductions. If that causes me to feel poorly and the CRP to support that, then I may suggest a slower reduction, although my tabs are 5mg so smaller denomination will be needed.
