Maximal Effective Dosing (MED) is the maximum amount of Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) you can use weekly, along with appropriate ancillaries, that will allow your Lipid Profile, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, and CBC to appear normal upon blood testing. The point of this exercise is that if you choose to exceed this level, you are hurting yourself and wasting meds. Remember, your genetics, exercise routine, and diet will help you achieve this maximal level. If you stick to the MED, you will make gains and you will stay healthy. And you will be able to repeat this MED cycle over and over again. Food for thought.
