03 Jan Anabolic Steroid-Induced Low Testosterone? How Can We Help?
Anabolic steroids are a very common medication in our world today. While many people associate these steroids for their ability to improve sports performance, these steroids can also be used to help treat some medical conditions. This is because steroids can be used to boost performance, endurance and muscle mass—they also can help improve recovery time for those who exercise frequently.
No matter what the reason is for taking anabolic steroids, it is important for any man taking or considering these drugs to not only know how they work, but how they may impact your testosterone levels.
What are Anabolic Steroids?
Anabolic steroids are artificially derived from testosterone, the primary male hormone and the hormone responsible for promoting and maintaining growth. While it is true that these synthetic steroids can build muscle and improve athletic performance, when they are not used correctly—they can come with some serious side effects.
In fact, research shows that long-term, non-medical uses of anabolic steroids can be linked to heart issues, aggression, physical changes, and also—low testosterone.
This is because anabolic steroids can lead to a condition known as hypogonadism—a condition that can have a range of side effects on the body including ED and low testosterone.
