SERIOUS Question About AS and White Blood Cells
Hope some of the experts can help
Can AS lower your White Blood Cell Count ?
If it does, how long post cycle do levels return to normal ?
My count has always been a bit below normal. Very healthy otherwise, matter of fact I really don't often catch a cold.
My latest blood work showed a drop in my white cell count from before I did AS. (3.2 1 year ago to 2.7)
I have just started my second cycle and I dont want to drive my levels so low that I get sick.

I want to thank Nandi12 (a mod at Triedia and very knowledgeable person) for providing this response. I have personally thanked him from AR.
Androgens actually have the opposite effect: they raise white cell production. This is due to a general stimulatory effect on the bone marrow production of all types of blood cells. Among athletes, androgens are better known for their stimulation of red cell production.
Androgens used to be used to treat people with bone marrow disorders but now they have more sophisticated drugs like granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF).
Is your friend using antibiotics? that can lower white cell count, as can various anemias. What if any other drugs or medications is your friend using? Some drugs can lower WBC.
