One study comparing the effect of a weekly injection of 200mg testosterone enenthate vs only a 6mg daily oral dose of winstrol makes this very clear. After only six weeks, stanozolol was shown to reduce HDL and HDL-2(Good) cholesterol by an average of 33% and 71% respectively. The HDL reduction (HDL-3 subfraction) with the testosterone group was only an average of 9% LDL (bad) cholesterol also rose 29% with stanozolol, while it actually dropped 16% with the use of testosterone.
