Anabolin Injection, Im Injection

Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid. It promotes tissue-building processes and protein anabolism. It also stimulates erythropoeitin production, causing an increase in haemoglobin and RBC volume.


Nandrolone decanoate is used for the management of the anemia of renal insufficiency and has been shown to increase hemoglobin and red cell mass. Surgically induced anephric patients have been reported to be less responsive.

Anabolin is also used to associated treatment for these conditions: Chronic renal failure anemia, Osteoporosis (Senile), Postmenopausal Osteoporosis
