Using steroids correctly and avoiding side effects

The word “ steroid ” brings up negative connotations, as it is commonly connected with drugs that have bad side effects. Under the right conditions, steroids can be administered for medical purposes.

Athletes utilize anabolic steroids (similar to testosterone) for a variety of physical enhancement reasons, such as developing muscle and increasing strength. Steroids can be taken or delivered in three ways: orally, topically (with an ointment or lotion), or intravenously (via injections).

As we all know that taking steroids has many benefits like-

  • increasing muscle growth as a result of increased protein synthesis in the body

  • increasing muscle endurance and strength

  • reducing your body fat percentage in general

  • increased synthesis of red blood cells

  • improve strength-related sports performance, such as weightlifting.

But the problem arises when steroids are used without proper consultation with a doctor or physician, which we called: STEROID ABUSE”.

Abusing steroids can result in major adverse effects like-

  • Weakening of body muscles & body functions

  • Heart Attack or stroke

  • Kidney failure

  • Liver tumor

  • Anger& depression

  • Bleeding problems. Etc.

That’s why before beginning or stopping the use of steroids, it is usually advisable to consult a doctor or a professional physician. Stopping medically prescribed steroids abruptly can result in unpleasant side effects and unidentified withdrawal symptoms.
