Furthermore, a Dianabol only cycle highly increases the chances of the user developing gynecomastia which is a hormonal imbalance condition where the user develops enlarged breasts, commonly referred to as “man boobs”.
These oral only cycles have also been proven to cause high blood pressure and an increase in cholesterol in the body. Hence, people who have a history of high blood pressure and cholesterol related issues are advised to stay clear of this steroid.
