I wanted to conclude this post with a few considerations for the reader. Most people have reached the consensus that if one tries to take steroids to increase height, they can actually have the reverse affect and can decrease one’s growth rate and one can end up shorter than one was intended for if left alone . 2nd, steroids do have some bad side effects including sexual dysfunction, so more research needs to be done. If you intend to take steroids, do your own research first and get all the facts first. That is why this post will be the first in a series of posts which looks at which steroids out there have been reported to help one increase height. Stay tuned over the next few months.
Come on, a half inch isnt worth the risk of permenantly damaging your endocrine system... But...
Anavar can encourage growth. Most of the research is done on younger people with actual medical problems, such as 13 y/os with Turner syndrome, not 5ft10 guys who are nearing the end of their growth...
"A total of 130 patients with uncomplicated short stature (4 to 17 years of age) were treated with oxandrolone, mg/kg/day, for up to four years. Oxandrolone therapy resulted in a two-fold increase in mean growth velocity in the first six months of therapy and was an effective growth stimulant for the full four-year period. There was no overall adverse effect of oxandrolone on post-treatment mean growth velocity or on skeletal maturation relative to height gain. There were 37 patients with greater increase in height age than bone age and 22 patients with greater increase in bone age than height age. Assessment of the contribution of oxandrolone therapy to the latter group is difficult because of inadequate methodology and the wide variation in individual growth patterns. Taken in their entirety, the data suggest that oxandrolone is useful in the prolonged treatment of uncomplicated short stature and is not associated with undesirable acceleration of skeletal maturation."
"Height gain was significantly increased in the oxandrolone treated groups: (SD ) in group 2 and (SD ) in group 3 versus (SD ) in the controls (P<)."
