Turinabol, or to use its proper name, Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, was originally developed in the early 1960’s by an East-German company, Jenapharm. Used extensively by East German athletes it propelled them on the world stage to rival superpowers USA and Russia in the seventies and eighties. In 2005 the company was forced to contribute $ to a fund to compensate former athletes forced to dope, many suffering life changing physiological issues. With the collapse of the eastern bloc, and more modern anti doping methods Turinabol gradually fell out of fashion (despite its relatively short detection window) and officially is no longer manufactured despite being widely available.
But one has to remember, Tbol dosages nowadays are more then mg per day, often exceeding 60mg. Therefore, more of a negative impact on liver, kidney and cholesterol would be expected. Just like many oral steroidsthe users cholesterol profile can change dramatically. HDL can fall and LDL can rise causing a bad environment for other cardiovascular related side effects and increase risk factors. Recent research has pointed the finger at cholesterol as being one of the most important steroid related side effects bodybuilders want to avoid.
