Steroids and their effects on athletes

Steroids are chiefly used by bodybuilders for three main purposes namely bulking, enhancing their performance and cutting. Some of the popular bulking steroids that help you to gain that pump in the muscles are Dianabol, Anadrol, DecaDurabolin, Trenbolone and Testosterone. Some of the best performances enhancing drugs preferred by the professional athletes are Winstrol and Testosterone. Cutting steroids are essentially the ones which help in burning that extra fat. Clenbuterol, Winstrol andAnavar are few of the popular cutting steroids.

Most modern steroid enemas are foam based - as the likelihood of someone with colitis being able to retain a water based enema is quite low. These act topically applying the steroid directly to the colon - with only small amounts being absorbed into the bloodstream. This makes side effects less likely. The downside is that they can only reach the descending colon and rectum - so for those with extensive colitis oral steroids may be needed. A combination of Entocort and steroid enemas can provide topical treatment to the majority of the colon - again minimizing side effects. As the two main steroid enemas differ quite greatly I will cover them separately.

Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes. [45]
