General information about TESTO-ENAN-1 in Belgium
TESTO-ENAN-1 Testosterone Enanthate Injection, provides testosterone enanthate, a derivative of the primary androgenic endogenous testosterone.
Endogenous androgens are responsible for the normal growth and development of the male sex organs and the maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. These effects include growth and maturation of the prostate, seminal vesicles, penis and scrotum, Development of male hair distribution, such as beard, pubis, chest and axillary hair, Enlargement of the larynx, Thickening of the vocal cords, Alterations in body musculature, and fat distribution.
Androgens also cause retention of nitrogen, sodium, potassium, and phosphorus and decreased urinary calcium excretion. Androgens have been reported to increase protein anabolism and decrease protein catabolism. Nitrogen balance is improved only when there is sufficient intake of calories and protein.
Androgens are responsible for the growth spurt of adolescence and the eventual termination of linear growth which is brought about by the fusion of the epiphyseal growth centers. In children, exogenous androgens accelerate linear growth rates but may cause a disproportionate advance in bone maturation. Use over long periods of time may cause the epiphyseal growth centers to fuse and the growth process to stop. Androgens have been reported to stimulate the production of red blood cells by increasing the production of erythropoietic stimulating factor.
Dosage in Belgium
During exogenous administration of androgens, endogenous testosterone release is inhibited by inhibiting the pituitary luteinizing hormone (LH) response. At high doses of exogenous androgens, spermatogenesis may also be suppressed by inhibiting the pituitary pituitary hormone (FSH) response.
There is a lack of substantial evidence that androgens are effective in fractures, surgery, convalescence, and functional uterine bleeding.
