Is the atrophy of a man's testicles permanent after taking anabolic-androgenic steroids?

Is the atrophy of a man's testicles permanent after taking anabolic-androgenic steroids?

How long....: Long term use will shrivel the testes of any man and also shut down the production of the lh and fsh parts of the pituitary gland, which turns on the testes. The longer on Anabolic steroids the longer to resurrect testicular function. This why steroid users, acommodating to higher than normal testosterone levels have such a hard time quiting. Their levels immediately drop to pre-pubertal levels! ...Read more

Can taking anabolic steroids effect my RA or the medication I'm on?

Can taking anabolic steroids effect my RA or the medication I'm on?

Not a good idea.: The anabolic steroids are not a good idea. Your system is highly stimulated already with an autoimmune disease. There is no sense in adding more chemicals for this. And sometimes people are already on steroids for the RA. If you are on DMARDS I would not add to the mix with anabolic steroids.
Best wishes. ...Read more

Please tell me if there are any anabolic steroids that don't show up on a drug test?

Please tell me if there are any anabolic steroids that don't show up on a drug test?

Why?: So you can use that particular one? Anabolic steroids are highly dangerous drugs, even when they are used for the right reasons in people who have deficiencies or where such agents have therapeutic purposes. When used for the wrong reasons (artificially inducing muscle growth) by people with little or no medical training they can cause psychosis, cardiac problems, liver damage and many others. ...Read more

Can you tell me how drug dealers get dianobol and all these other anabolic steroids?

Can you tell me how drug dealers get dianobol and all these other anabolic steroids?

Many places: For the most part, pharmaceutical drugs are diverted by corrupt workers in retail pharmacies, more so in wholesale pharmacies and the pharmaceutical companies themselves, as well as their warehouses. In some cases, there are chemists with their own labs who actually make the stuff, and that can be a problem because quality control isn't what it could be. Bad docs and clinics prescribe them too. ...Read more

How is it possible for drug dealers to get dianobol and all these other anabolic steroids?

Not Clear: Of course if it were obvious the drug dealers would be arrested as well as their source if implicated. I think most experts would predict it comes somewhere in the pharmaceutical distribution line or from overseas. ...Read more

Which drug is most dangerous? Anabolic steroids, hallucinogens, or club (designer) drugs?

Which drug is most dangerous? Anabolic steroids, hallucinogens, or club (designer) drugs?

Tough 2 decide!: What an interesting question! Hard to say, steroids cause shrunken testicles, enlarged prostate, breast development, erectile dysfunction, reduced sperm count, severe acne, high blood pressure and strokes. Hallucinogens like LSD cause psychosis, flashbacks, schizophrenia, depression. Club drugs could be a lot of things, sudden death from arrhythmia is reported with several. All are dangerous! ...Read more

Would super dmz 3.0 an anabolic steroid show up on a 8 panel drug test? Or on a etg drug test for probation?

Would super dmz 3.0 an anabolic steroid show up on a 8 panel drug test? Or on a etg drug test for probation?

You're okay, Ken!: Super DMZ is a perfectly legal substance marketed as a prohormone to bodybuilders. I will be pleasantly surprised if it actually helps you put on mass. I'm very pleased you're not using true anabolic steroids, especially if you're on probation -- they can make you do things you'll regret & ruin your life. I'm glad you're taking staying-straight seriously and also building yourself up. Stay free. ...Read more

What to do if I have been called in to take a drug test to be a mail carrier, does the usps drug test for anabolic steroids?

A cautious no: Most federally regulated drug testing programs perform a 6 panel test which includes marijuana metabolites, cocaine metabolites, PCP, opiates including heroin, and barbiturates. However if suspicious behavior warrants, additional testing may be requested on an individual basis particularly if it involves a post injury situation. ...Read more

Will my creatinine level raise from taking anabolic steroids? And will drinking lots of water bring it down for my drug screen that uses urine dilute

Both unlikely. . .: It's unlikely that anabolic steroids will affect your creatinine level, a measure of kidney function. Drinking water may decrease blood urea nitrogen (BUN) but not creatinine. Different drug screens test for different things. Most employers check for opioid abuse, not anabolic use, unlike sporting oversight groups. Unfortunately, there's no way to get stuff out of your system any faster or hide it ...Read more

Does inactive hep b patients have to stay away from only anabolic steroids to prevent activation of the virus or from any performance enhancing drug?

Does inactive hep b patients have to stay away from only anabolic steroids to prevent activation of the virus or from any performance enhancing drug?

What's 'inactive? ": Very few people with hepatitis b spontaneously clear the infection, which usually persists at a low level. If you were treated for it, you may have a long-term remission and even cure. However, if your liver is already damaged, throwing other drugs, many of which are toxic to the liver, is not good for you. You should clear anything you want to use with your liver specialist. ...Read more

Does inactive hep b patients have to stay away from only anabolic steroids to prevent activation of the virus or from any performance enhancing drug?

Depends. . .: Answer depends upon how you define ped. After all, viagra (sildenafil) & Cialis are peds, too, but shouldn't be an issue in folks w/liver disease. In truth, prescription testosterone, either as a shot or via cream/gel/lotion/patch is really very safe as far as your liver goes. It's only oral testosterones that are dangerous as well as anabolic stuff that is designed to keep from breaking down in liver. ...Read more

Can you tell me how anabolic steroids work?

Can you tell me how anabolic steroids work?

Same as testosterone: The body produces testosterone and similar steroids during puberty in men to increase muscle mass, hasten sexual maturation of both the anatomy (penile and testicular enlargement, sperm production) and sexual desire. Synthetic Anabolic steroids do essentially the same thing but can be far more potent. They also increase prostate cancer, depression, psychosis, heart trouble and other nasty stuff. ...Read more

Can you tell me how can anabolic steroids work?

They are hormones: That are similar to hormones the body makes to help increase muscle strength and growth, mainly testosterone and its derivatives. Boys and girls produce about the same amount of these until puberty, when it markedly increases in boys, which is why they have different kinds of muscle development. Synthetic steroids do the same thing, just more so. They also have major toxicity and dangers to health. ...Read more

Are anabolic steroids worth taking for fast results?

Are anabolic steroids worth taking for fast results?

I say No: I've been around gyms for decades and every ordinary lift-for-fitness guy I know who's tried them has been sorry. The aggression may cause you to do something on impulse that you'll regret forever. The depression after can land you in the mental ward. Most women prefer a naturally-fit man and can tell -- and not just from your shrunken testicles or puffed nipples. Go for "natural". ...Read more
