Blood pressure question

Can someone explain why certain steroids increase blood pressure.

Can anything be done to reduce BP whilst on a cycle?

Thanks all

    Increases in oestrogen and sodium, and thus water retention. Some steroids increase red blood cell count, another contributor.

    To reduce it, don't take dosages which cause the problem to get out of hand. Take an Aromatase inhibitor, to prevent oestrogen buildup and avoid overdoing salty, processed foods or adding additional salt. Potassium supps may help. Continue doing some mild cardio.
