Did you know? Anabolic steroids may raise risk of premature death in men

Men who use androgenic anabolic steroids such as testosterone may face a higher risk of early death, warns a new study. Mortality was three times higher amongst users of anabolic steroids - steroidal androgens that include natural ones like testosterone as well as synthetic - compared to non-users. The higher use was also associated with significant increase in hospital admissions as a result of high side effects including acne, gynaecomastia, and erectile dysfunction. Anabolic steroids are associated with a range of side effects that can be directly attributed to their pharmacological activities, according to lead author Henrik Horwitz, from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
