The bottom line is very simple and it as always goes back to the same thing regarding any topic of anabolic steroids. Your personal education is paramount and it is something you will need to do on your own. There is no university class, there’s no Steroids 101, there’s no club you can join that is sponsored by your local chamber of commerce; you must learn how to self-educate. Then and only then will pictures of steroids be of any value to you; even so, most will ignore this and pictures of steroids will be all they ever use. In that case email me now; I’ve got a tube of toothpaste, I wrote “Steroids” on it with a magic marker ; trust me, it’s real and I’d be glad to sell it to you.
A very typical case of severe cholestasis due to anabolic steroid use. Because the steroids were being used without medical supervision, the dose and actual duration of use of each preparation was unclear, but cholestasis usually arises within 4 to 12 weeks of starting a C-17 alkylated androgenic steroid. The jaundice can be severe and prolonged and accompanied by severe pruritus and marked weight loss. The serum enzymes are typically minimally elevated except for a short period immediately after stopping therapy. The pattern of enzyme elevations can be hepatocellular, cholestatic or mixed. Liver biopsy shows a “bland” cholestasis with minimal inflammation and hepatocellular necrosis. Ma Huang has also been implicated in cases of drug induced liver injury, but is associated with an acute hepatocellular pattern of injury.
