Androgenic steroids cause enlargement of the breasts, water retention, abdominal cramps and some skin irritations. Estrogenic steroids cause increase facial and body hair, deepening of the voice, menstrual irregularities. Both steroids may have some irreversible characteristics but the difference between them is that the one of the steroids give women a masculine look while the other gives men some female features like the enlargement of the breasts.
Question 4 C.
There are risks that can come with taking steroids but the risks can be minimized if they are taken in moderation. The dose of the steroids is 10 to 100 times higher than the dose prescribes by the doctor. Some of the side effects can be irreversible like kidney failure.
The testicle that is left tries to compensate for the missing one, causing it to produce more testosterone. Since the single testicle has to produce double the amount of testosterone it would enlarge do to the overactive gland.
Major effects inside the
-unable to father children
-enlargement of the breast
-high blood pressure
-increase the chance of heart attack and stoke
Question 4 A. (cont)
Major effects inside the
-increase in bad cholesterol (HDL triglyceride), decrease of good cholesterol (LFL)
Anabolic steroid use has many common side effects. One of the more common ones for males is testicular atrophy or shrinkage. This is caused because the use of steroids, suppresses the bodies natural testosterone, which in turn causes a decrease in the size of the actual testes. Unfortunately, this decrease in size, also causes minimized sperm production, and sometimes even stability.
It seems that this treatment might actually work to alleviate testicular atrophy, and here's why; if HCG is similar in structure to LH and FSH, and also produces similar biological effects as those two hormones. If this is true, the HCG could help balance the effects of the anabolic steroids, by supporting Leydig cells (which produce testosterone), and also encouraging spermatogenesis (sperm production) through the Sertoli cells.
Marion Jones: Went to the Olympics in 2000 and was accused for using “The Clear” steroid prior to the Olympics starting in 1999. She was later to be stripped of her 3 gold medals and 2 bronze. As well as serving 6 months in prison as well as 200 hours of community service for lying to federal prosecutors (Sports ESPN).
Question 5 Cont.
One of the most decorated and well-known female track and field athletes, Jones admitted to steroid use in October 2007. Though steroid rumors dogged the athlete for years, Jones routinely denied any involvement with doping, even testifying before two grand juries that she had always been steroid-free. Jones competed in her first Olympics in Sydney in 2000. Though she was aiming for five gold medals, Jones came home with three gold and two bronze, a feat that had never been achieved by a female athlete (Sports ESPN).
Through much of her career, Jones was suspected of using steroids. In 2003 a federal investigation into illegal steroid distribution by the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (BALCO) led to allegations by BALCO founder Victor Conte and Jones’s ex-husband, C.J. Hunter, that the sprinter used banned substances. Jones, who had never failed a drug test at that time, denied the allegations. In 2006 she tested positive for a banned substance but was later cleared by a follow-up test. The following year, however, she pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about her drug use and admitted to having taken steroids (Britannica).
Question 5 Cont.
No they shouldn’t. Because as to reference from the case study itself, there seems to be more risks than positive outcomes. In the case study it states that the steroid produces 3 times more testosterone than in natural occurring testosterone, which is also used in livestock to beefen them up. The steroid has trenbolone which is naturally produced by the testicles, that being said it can cause testicles to shrink 25% from their original size. By using steroids it causes the patterns of hair growth to change as well as muscle with the fat distribution. Overall it can affect sperm count and cause roid rage, it affects your heart as well as your personality. The professional/competitive sports is what kids look forward to accomplishing. It’s what makes them work so hard to get to possibly be in that category. If steroids are allowed then what’s the point of having to work so hard to accomplish your dreams to have an easy way out.
