Testosterone This is what makes a man, a man, primarily because it is the principal male sex hormone. It also happens to be an anabolic steroid. Some athletes take anabolic steroids to raise their testosterone levels, but this is quite dangerous compared to natural testosterone, which is produced naturally in the testes.

Default Organ damage

Case studies help point out the potential damage of testosterone abuse. A recent report by Samaha et al. (2008) showed multi-organ damage in 24 year old male. It is believed that this damage resulted from uncontrolled use of anabolic steroid supplements, mainly testosterone.

Yes, virtually all growth hormone or anabolic drugs come with severe and unfortunate side effects. This is why they were eventially all banned from being legal for personal use.

An interesting thing is that the current problems with steroids in sports are often considered ONLY sports problems. When, as you noted, use of steroids is often illegal. However, steroids have an important POSITIVE role in medicine too. Thus, there are no simple answers.

I found out that my 21 year old son was taking steroids to help him lose weight and gain muscle. His dad bought this stuff for him in a health food store. Neither one of them realized it was actually steroids. I threw them in the garbage and had a long talk with my son and his dad. They both thought they were just vitamins. But after reading the label I found out they weren`t.

You should sue the health store for selling steroids disguised as a supplement. What health store is this?

I`m not sure what heath food store it was. My ex bought it for him. I can`t sue them because if you read the back of the bottle you can see it is a steroid. I don`t know what my ex was thinking. I know he can read.

Steroids do more harm to the body than good..the adverse effects are many ranging from mere headaches to heart attacks,and even organ failure..Thank God, you realised it in time..
