Some people say it has a negative effect to your liver. Is this true?
How do you determine that filtration lessens?
Trenbolone is not c-17 alpha alkylated, and is generally not considered a hepatotoxic steroid; liver toxicity is unlikely. This steroid does have a strong level of resistance to hepatic breakdown, however, and severe liver toxicity has been noted in bodybuilders abusing trenbolone. Although unlikely, hepatotoxicity cannot be completely excluded, especially with high doses.
Injectable testosterone cipionate [sic] and enantate [sic] preparations do not appear to affect liver function enzymes, whereas (nor-)testosterone esters may induce parenchymal lesions of the liver.*

Thanks for the clarification, Bill. Perhaps my physician was warning me that my enzymes were so elevated that improper filtration was a possibility.Then your post follows completely from that, but your doctor did not explain well as it's not the case that elevated liver enzymes mean that the liver is necessarily metabolizing toxins more slowly (not filtering equally well.)
Ultimately when the liver has chronically experienced damage this becomes the case, but elevated enzymes themselves don't mean that the liver has already reached the point of functioning less effectively.
