I'm taking metformin for type 2 diabeties an is at a steady 5.9 I do bodybuilding an an going to start steroids how do I do it safely?

You don't: If you don't have a testosterone hormone deficiency, and you take steroids, you may become more Insulin resistant. Additionally you may cause testicular shrinking as doping (when you take anabolic hormones when you don't physiologically need them) suppresses pituitary gonadotropins from normal feedback mechamism to keep testes healthy. For females other problems develop. ...Read more

Bodybuilding is a sport in which you cannot win without taking steroids. I am very much interested in bodybuilding n really want to compete I am havng a well built physique as well but in order to reach that level of competition I will have to take stero

Steroid side effects: .. are well documented, especially at the levels you must take/inject to compete. It is your choice, not anyone else's. If you want to win this competition bad enough, at all costs to the rest of your body long term, then that is the decision you must be ready to live with. There is no other advice anyone can offer you that would not require that ultimate decision. ...Read more

Can one use steroids with wpw? I have wpw (asympt) but I do bodybuilding. Will a cycle of test propionate hurt? Can it cause arrhytmia?

Be careful: I'm not aware of any reason to think that wolff-parkinson-white makes using Anabolic steroids for bodybuilding any more ill-advised than it already is. Testosterone propionate is likely to be a placebo for an 18 year old man as you're already loaded naturally. I've been around gyms for 40 years and every guy I know who's dong steroids has been sorry. Don't cheat and go for a natural look. ...Read more

If I take on cycle of deca durabolin (steroids) for bodybuilding, is there a risk of death from over dose, if I have one kidney? Or its ok

If I take on cycle of deca durabolin (steroids) for bodybuilding, is there a risk of death from over dose, if I have one kidney? Or its ok

Glad you're lifting: You don't die of direct toxicity. I've spent time around gyms and i'd encourage you to reconsider your involvement with anabolic steroids. Even if it's legal where you live, many people will consider it cheating, most women prefer a natural bodybuilder, and you're playing russian roulette with your mind. You may do something you'll regret for the rest of your life. Higher dose, greater danger. ...Read more

I took aldactone (spironolactone) 25mg 3x/day (no steroids) for 2 days before a bodybuilding comp. 3 days later I am bloated like a blowfish. Been drinking water, pedialyte, not getting better. What can I do?

I took aldactone (spironolactone) 25mg 3x/day (no steroids) for 2 days before a bodybuilding comp. 3 days later I am bloated like a blowfish. Been drinking water, pedialyte, not getting better. What can I do?

Fluid retention?: It's tempting to take diuretics before a body building competition, but it's not healthy. Especially if you're also stepping up your workout at the same time, you could get seriously dehydrated. Aldactone (spironolactone) can also increase your potassium level which can cause heart rhythm problems.
Stop aldactone! You need medical attention, electrolyes & EKG ASAP. Without that info, my advice is worthless. ...Read more

Will a testosterone booster supplement that is sold on bodybuilding. Com or GNC alert on a steroid drug test or urine drug test?

Who knows?: Since no one knows what's in those "supplements", there's no way to tell. However, they won't "boost" you testosterone or anything else, other than boosting the $$ out of your wallet and into their pocket. Don't get your medical info from tv or the internet. Avoid the supplements and save your money and your health. ...Read more

Hi I ask Q 's before and u keep saying steroids are bad there's been hundred study's that say they are safe in sports at low doses I never ad probs?

What kind of studies: Is the question. All companies will say that studies show the wonderful benefits of their product. 'the problem is: are the studies good ones? There are good and bad ways to do a study. When looking at results, see who paid to have the study done? Check that there is no conflict of interest. A study with only a few people is not definitive. Good study results will be reported by reputable groups. ...Read more

What type?: Glucocorticoids such as prednisone are basically safe if used exactly as prescribed by a competent physician. A short course, for example, is great for poison ivy. Anabolic steroids are widely used, and the greatest danger is that the user will do something impulsively that they'll regret terribly for the rest of their life.
