Steroids are a class of compounds that share a similar chemical structure. This broad group of chemicals includes many normal substances in the body (such as cholesterol), vitamins (vitamin D), hormones (for example, the sex hormones and their derivatives), and drugs given to treat inflammation (hydrocortisone, prednisone). The adrenal glands secrete a number of steroid hormones, known as corticosteroids that are important for the maintenance of blood pressure, blood glucose levels, salt and water balance, and other critical body processes. However, when we speak of steroid abuse by athletes, doctors are referring to the misuse of the so-called "anabolic steroids," which are manufactured drugs similar to the male sex hormone testosterone.
The current regimens used for steroid doping include combinations of injectable and oral preparations of steroids at doses 10 to 40 times greater than those prescribed therapeutically. Anabolic steroids are designed to imitate the hormone testosterone for medical use only, and to treat conditions like hypogonadism, delayed puberty and impotence. But Anabolic steroids have potentially been abused, and only a very small number are approved for human and animal use in U.S. Steroids users are 56% more likely to experience increase in irritability and aggressive behavior.
Drug use in sports seems to be as old as the sport itself. The available scientific literature describes that short-term administration of these drugs by athletes can increase strength and bodyweight. Grievously, the dosages taken by athletes and body-builders are 10-50 folds greater than the therapeutic dosages, and give rise to hyper- androgenic conditions. Although this improves endurance, strength and muscle development, at the same time it manifests hormone disturbance with wide variety of consequences ranging from some that are physically unattractive to others that are life threatening, such as heart attacks and liver cancer.
