Steroids: This is a tough one. It really depends on what kind of steroid and how much you used. The best was to detoxify is to stop using. You will automatically return to your normal levels. I would really talk to your doctor and show him the steroid you were taking so he can advise you better.

They are illegal, they are cheating, the testicular atrophy that they cause will get you ridiculed, and they do nothing to increase your speed or endurance. Guys I've known who've tried them are all sorry.

If a body builder takes insulin as a steroid, what are the chances of becoming insulin dependent?

If a body builder takes insulin as a steroid, what are the chances of becoming insulin dependent?

Look around at all the insulin-treated diabetics. Do they look buff to you?
