Anabolic-androgenic steroid abuse

Throughout the history, mankind has always tried to increase productivity by increasing physical strength, fighting tiredness and increasing the concentration. Currently enhancers (aka anabolic androgen steroids “AAS”) are the most common drugs for increasing productivity that are freely sold.

Almost all kinds of sports including running, swimming, weight lifting, body-building and sports personnel take these drugs during preparations or within their training programs, although they have been added to the latest PED list of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). In addition to their useful effects, the side effects caused by over doses should be also considered.

What are anabolic steroids?

Steroid principle

Synthetic steroids can compensate lack of hormones cortisone and aldosterone and can be used for treating many inflammations. Testosterone is the natural human androgenic anabolic hormone. It is used as the basis for almost every anabolic steroid. It is generated in testicles after puberty.
Testosterone is responsible for development of secondary male sexual characteristics such as body hair, voice depth, libido, aggression, and sexual drive.

It strengthens protein synthesis, muscle bulk and strength, inhibits the generation of natural testosterone through hypothalamus and hypophysis. Testosterone was produced in 1935 for the first time.

Role in treatment

Male sexual hormones used for treating diseases related to male-hypogonadism and used for improving the physical state due to its anabolic and androgenic effects. Nevertheless, currently this application is obsolete as these drugs although can improve the shape and increase the muscle bulk, they cause severe and irreversible harm that can’t be compared with the gained results without the verification of a doctor. So currently it is prohibited to use anabolic steroids for treating these diseases when they are not prescribed. Many find this a way of the health system making more money, as many athletes and others have stated that they have cured their own problems with the use of these steroids without needed to visit a GP as they order their substances form overseas where is it legal to do so.

 

Side effects of an over dosage?

Steroid side effects

Higher doses or longer period of taking the drug physiological effects of corticosteroids becomes excessive and leads to side effects.

Some sportsmen take the therapeutic dose of the steroid for gaining the required result several times, even 300mg during several weeks. In addition to such consumption, it reduces the generation of natural testosterone as the hormone level is higher.

The side effect can be toxic and cause hormonal disturbances. Some oral drugs are hepatotoxic for vulnerable people who take it for a long time. So when you take this anabolic steroid, the liver function should be controlled all the time! Depending on the used dose, the hormonal side effect is reduction of virilization (for men) and their testicular functioning.
When considering the advantages and side effects, it should be mentioned that although positive effects of anabolic steroids are temporary, most side effects are irreversible.

Male and hormonal effect

For women – increased hairiness, clit growth, periods disorder, masculinity, and male tone.

For men – amount and mobility of sperm cells are reduced due to testicle disorders. Prostate gland swelling and decreased libido can be seen. Also increased hairiness, penis increase, changes of voice depth and aggression level occur due to expressed secondary sexual characteristics. Long intakes of anabolic steroids will lead to breast tissue increases, fat deposition and muscle softening if the preventative drugs are not used alongside.

Liver failure

Jaundice occurs due to the increased amount of liver cells and bile duct obstruction. This mainly occurs though the long term use or oral and more toxic steroids when liver care is not taken. The effects can be really bad if these are abused, but then again, so can a few beers per day!

Cardiovascular effects

Due to disorder of the electrolyte balance the tissues swell, the blood volume increase, the heart starts working more intensely and the arterial blood pressure is increased. Loss of fat exchange increase the levels of fatty acids and triacylglycerol. This leads to early atherosclerosis and risk of cardiac and apoplectic attack. In case of regular and long intake it is recommended to control the cholesterol level in blood. Anabolic steroids also increase the level of corticosteroids and this lowers the body defenses.

Other effects

Changed skin quality, pimples, swollen sweat glands. Hairless sections on the head appear or even baldness. Children may suffer from irreversible changes of long bone growth and body growth inhibition. Currently ignorance is the main reason of side effects from the use of anabolic-androgenic steroids. These drugs cause side effects that are not just possible, but are rather predictable and real. If they knew this, they would hardly use anabolic drugs for long periods of time in high dosages without being safe with their cycles.

Luckily, all of these side effects are mentioned in the cases of overdosing or abusing the drugs for long periods of time. The main problem for many, is that these substances can be very effective and once a user has the taste, they want more! This is where self-control and discipline comes into play. Luckily people who are serious about their training and their bodies do not abuse these substances and due to this, many have been cycling for 20+ years without any hindrances of major side effects. Studies will argue this all day long but nothing beats personal experiences over short and sweet studies, as everyone is individual, so what works for you, may not work for your partner or friend.
