Anabolic Steroids And High Creatinine Levels
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
I have been taking anabolic steroids for five years I am off them now how long will it take me to be producing normal level testosterone again?
No way to tell: It could be days to weeks -- or even permanent deficiency. There are many, many variable that can affect your return to normal. Check w/your doctor for testing and possible treatment if necessary.
If anabolic steroids increase estrogen (e) levels, will boosting testosterone naturally (ie taking vit d, lifting weights, abstinence) also increase e?
Your "natural": Methods do not "boost" testosterone. That's determined by endocrine feedback mechanisms and other factors. Any increase in testosterone will lead to minor increases in estrogen due to hormone conversion, but they are insignificant and meaningless except in people who take excessive exogenous testosterone. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams.
Are There Natural Ways To Treat Secondary Hypogonadism after prolong Anabolic Steroids usage. T/LH/FSH level low rest is fine. Hypogonadism revesable?
Depends on: Amount and duration of suppression. Sometimes, no, not reversible. This is one of the more serious side effects of anabolic steroids. Consult with an endocrinologist.
No: The list negative effects is long, including both short and long-term effects. The short list is aggression, manic episodes, acne, alopecia, increased risk of tendon tears, liver dysfunction, liver cancer, hypogonadism, decreased sperm count and mobility, gynecomastia, increased risk of prostate cancer, hypertension, cardiac hypertrophy, and case reports of sudden death. Those are the highlights.
I'd urge you not to: I've been around gyms for decades. Among the ordinary fitness-guys that I know who've tried them, all have said they were sorry. The emotions are the worst. You may do something impulsively that you regret horribly for the rest of your life. Tapering may cause depression bad enough to land you in the mental ward. Your balls shrink. Most women prefer a naturally fit man and can tell you aren't.See 1 more doctor answer
They are hormones: Derived from cholesterol, that are related to testosterone, which is the naturally occurring one (as is andostenedione). They are either semisynthetic (chemically related to testosterone) or fully synthetic. They increase metabolism and muscle mass, which is their natural function in men, and cause sexual maturation. In excessive doses, they are very toxic, which is one reason they are banned.
See below: Anabolic steroids, technically known as anabolic-androgenic steroids (aas), are drugs that have similar effects to testosterone in the body. There are four common forms in which Anabolic steroids are administered: oral pills, injectable steroids, creams/gels for topical application, and skin patches. Methyltestosterone and Fluoxymesterone as well as testosterone are examples.
See below: Depending on the length of drug abuse, there is a chance that the immune system can be damaged. Most of these side-effects are dose-dependent, the most common being elevated blood pressure, especially in those with pre-existing hypertension, and harmful changes in cholesterol levels: some steroids cause an increase in LDL "bad" cholesterol and a decrease in HDL "good" cholesterol.
Anabolic steroids: Please go on-line to "www. Drugabuse. Gov/public" Unless a doctor has documented that you have a low testosterone level it is foolhardy to use anabolic steroids. You should be aware of the athletes who have got themselves into trouble by using anabolic steroids.See 1 more doctor answer
Many Adverse Effects: Side effects from taking oral Anabolic steroids can range from mild to severe. Hypertension, elevated cholesterol, changes in blood sugar, baldness, and cardiovascular disease occur. Males can develop gynecomastia or enlarged breasts, reduced sexual function, aggression. Irritability and testicular atrophy. Females can experience lowering of their voices, and increased body hair.
Many: Increased bad cholesterol, atrophy of the testicles, acne, high blood pressure, liver damage, heart disease and (depending on the drug) enlarged breasts. Also there are reports of increased irritability, and mania. Definitely powerful medications which should be taken under a doctor's supervision.See 1 more doctor answer
Testosterone needed: Men with kleinfelters usually have small testes that do not make enough testosterone. Therefore, testosterone replacement is often needed. However, once the t replacement gets your t to a normal level, more is not better. How do you judge a normal level of t replacement? It is not as straightforward as with thyroid. You need to judge bone health, male characteristics, and side effects.
