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 ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

Those are the highlights. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
No: Interactions with all.Get a more detailed answer ›
Risk vs Benefit: Elevated blood pressure, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, liver disease, testicular atrophy, development of breasts in men, increased body hair in women, decreased libido, depression, mood instability, and potential for violence. There are other side effects, but I thought this list would keep anyone from using anabolic steroids. It seems there is a lot to risk and to little gain. ...Read more
There isn't good data: With any medication, side effects usually occur in some percentage of people. For some drugs, certain side effects may occur in a high percentage, but for most, particularly with serious side effects, they only occur in a minority. It often depends on how much & how often you use it, in which form, and your own biology, other medications, other illnesses or predispositions, whether you get them. ...Read more
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
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
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
I am researching anabolic steroids for personal use and was wondering if one cycle can affect fertility?
Not a good idea: Anabolic steroids have significant long term detrimental effects and problems so it is my strong recommendation that you do not start taking them even for very small period of time unless there are actual medical reasons to do so then you should do so under supervision of your doctor good luck. ...Read more
