Steroids stunt growth myth

Anabolic steroids can cause the development of acne. However, the extent to which it is experienced can be due to a number of varying factors, with the particular steroids and exact dosages used being primary. The skin´s sebaceous glands have a particularly high affinity to Dihydrotestosterone, which is an androgen the body naturally produces from testosterone via the enzyme 5-alpha Reductase. Increased sebaceous gland activity promotes oily skin which can combine with bacteria and dead skin (normal wear and tear) eventually causing pores to become clogged more quickly than the body can cleanse them. This of course, is preventable by using only particular steroids, cleansing the skin regularly, and perhaps using a topical anti-androgen.

Side Effects of Prolonged Steroid Abuse

"Rick’s growth and bone development have been affected by his high steroid use.   He was evaluated completely in the Pediatric Endocrinology clinic at the children’s hospital.   Their findings indicate Rick is constitutionally delayed in growth and his severe asthma and requirements for high-dose steroids over the past several years have contributed to this delay.   Based on their information, Rick has an estimated adult height of 5 feet 6 inches. Rick also has steroid induced osteoporosis that needs to be dealt with.  "

Because of an editing error, an article on Monday about teenage boys and body image misstated the number of boys who were interviewed as part of a recently published survey. It was 1,307, not 2,800. The article also misidentified the academic affiliation of a doctor who commented on supplements and steroids. The doctor, Shalender Bhasin, is a professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and chief of endocrinology, diabetes and nutrition at Boston Medical Center. He is not a professor at Boston Medical Center. And the article misidentified the nationality of the soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, whose body a teenager quoted in the article said he would like to emulate. Mr. Ronaldo is Portuguese, not Brazilian.
