Frank McGrath - Dialysis.
« on: August 09, 2022, 12:45:19 PM »
Video from Ron Harris, from four weeks ago.

I feel like Getbig wouldn't have missed this news before, but maybe with so many more bodybuilders coming down with health issues, it's hard to catch them all.

This news sucks - Frank is only 44 [today is his birthday]!



Frank had a 29" waist at 230-lb [he's 5'11"]. Such a small waist is basically unheard of on a modern IFBB pro:

Always had one of the best builds imo. That’s to bad.

Damn shame. Is there a specific steroid that causes kidney issues, or is this a diuretics/cutting agent risk?

Just after the 15-minute mark, Frank says he was born with one kidney, but didn't find out until he was in his twenties.  ???

So might some Getbiggers have only one kidney and not even know it?

They’ve recently found a link between Anadrol and kidney failure. Everybody’s been talking about it. It’s brutal yet true.

At about 16:30, Frank says that he is on dialysis, three times a week, four hours per session.

He also says he is 240-lb.

So...is it safe to say he is on a compound with a higher safety profile, like testosterone?

Really? Anadrol and kidney FAILURE?

We just went and WOOOOOSH, jumped right through kidney problems, straight to failure?

I am currently using 16mg daily. I kept tinkering with a low dose until I felt no side effects, and only effects.

I also used 12.5mg daily for 30 days with success.

Is Anadrol SO toxic, that even such low doses are dangerous?

I'll talk to my doctor about it tomorrow [I have a date tonight], but I wasn't going to stay on for more than another month anyway.

I’m just messing with you, Matty. Cruel joke I know. I know you’re kind of a hypochondriac. You’re blowing up on that stuff. Great progress

Then he looked like a shirt in a coat hanger in that 2019 Shawn Ray interview?

Yeah, lol.

But it does seem a bit too good to be true.

So if I put on 27-lb on 16mg, would I put on 165-lb if I used 100mg daily, like a friend of mine used?  ;D Jk.

It looks like Frank has been on dialysis since at least the start of the year:



I'm sort of surprised this news didn't come up yet.

What! That's crazy. There is going to be a lot of lawsuits from all the people prescribed anadrol for anemia

Actually Bhanky is just a little shorter. So he must have more muscle to weigh the same

Dialysis then straight to the gym.

This idiot will be dead soon.

Hopefully, sooner rather than later.

Why these drug addicts won’t come off and downsize.

Gnarly looking shoulder varicosities.

Maybe he'll cure his kidney with a Hankins inspired protocol of testosterone and HGH for maximum cocoon effect.

He started putting hashtags on IG like renal failure sucks ECT. It's truly a shame. I met him sometime ago at the Arnold and he was a super cool guy. He was really nice to my gf's son let him come behind the table signed some stuff for him..real humble guy

Have you seen him lately? (Big as a house and vascular like he used to be!)
