Nandrolone decanoate is indicated 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. Whenever an increment in weight gain is required, by means of an increase of efficiency in food conversion and promotion of proteic synthesis: commercial fatteninig, animals with delayed growth or weakened animals. Reduction of convalescence period in chronic diseases, as well as help in parasitary and infectious diseases. In cases of fractures, osteoporosis, arthrosis, rachitis, decalcifications and in prolonged treatments with corticosteroids, among other.
Increase in weight gain, through increased efficiency in the conversion of food; in adult animals, or in development. Specific indications include:-further development of bone structure and muscle mass and body weight increased. -Better and greater retention of minerals, protein synthesis, improves appetite and feed conversion. -Anemic processes (by stimulation of erythropoiesis: formation of red blood cells). -As an adjunct in cases of osteomalacia, osteoporosis, leukopenia. -As an adjunct in consumptive or debilitating diseases that produce weight loss, convalescent States, senile weakness, rickets, fractures (to promote the formation of bone callus) and stress (post-surgical, weaning, dehorning, castrations, changes in environment and summers or winters long among others). -States of protein catabolism due to continued use of corticoids (osteoporosis-astenia – muscular atrophy). -As an adjunct in dietary measures and specific therapies, in pathologic States characterized by a negative nitrogen balance and any other situation which requires promoting protein synthesis. Note: For an optimal therapeutic effect, it is necessary to administer adequate amounts of vitamins, minerals and proteins in a diet rich in calories
