Not shortly after Roger Maris record was broken, another baseball player, Jason Giambi and various other athletes were either suspected of, or proven to have, taken anabolic steroids. Again, Congress convened a hearing, and just as they did the first time in 1990, they did not determine that steroids were a danger, but rather that the danger was more in protecting professional sports organizations. The updated statute has been updated to proscribe pro-hormones also The definition of an anabolic steroid as defined currently in the United States under (41)(A) is that "anabolic steroid" means any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens , progestins, corticosteroids, and dehydroepiandrosterone (7).
You know, that is really not true. I have a blog about diabetes and the 86 million people in the US who are at present pre-diabetic which is very sad. In less than 3 years, it is possible that all 86 million of those people will be type 2 diabetic. I would go to any length which includes suggesting supplements that I have used to help deplete my need for any “prescription by big pharma”; they do nothing but prolong the diabetes because it can be cured with proper diet, exercise, and rest. All of these things can be enhanced ten fold by using supplements that I have suggested. These suggestions do not come from a flip of the switch either. Thanks for listening. I understand your theory but not all of us are “big pharma salaried”.
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.
