  Aromasin-Exemestane

In the segment of professional sports, Aromasin is an admired antiestrogen for controlling or preventing excess estrogen formation, especially toward the end of a steroid cycle. Sportsmen on anabolic steroids use Aromasin, also known as LiquiAroma, to stay protected against estrogenic side effects such as oily skin and gynecomastia.

Chemically designated as 6-methylenandrosta-1,4-diene-3,17-dione, Aromasin has an active life of 24-40 hours and the molecular formula of C20H24O2. The active ingredient in Aromasin tablets is exemestane, which is an irreversible and steroidal aromatase inactivator while the list of inactive ingredients include mannitol, crospovidone, polysorbate 80, hypromellose, colloidal silicon dioxide, microcrystalline cellulose, sodium starch glycolate, magnesium stearate, simethicone, polyethylene glycol 6000, sucrose, magnesium carbonate, titanium dioxide, methylparaben, and polyvinyl alcohol.

This third generation aromatase inhibitor (AI) has the ability to reduce estrogen production by inhibiting the aromatase enzyme, which is responsible for estrogen synthesization. In addition to this, Aromasin use is related to dramatic improvements in the levels of lipid profiles and bone mineral content. The fact that this antiestrogen can reduce estrogen production by 98 percent is enough proof for its efficacy, which is unmatched.

Furthermore, Aromasin use reduces the level of SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) to improve testosterone levels of the body besides making other steroids (parts of the steroid cycle) bio-available. One of the best things about this drug is that its use does not result in liver toxicity and is second to none in improving IGF-1 and optimizing benefits of steroids during a steroid cycle besides stimulating powerful bloat-reduction effects. When used in daily doses of 25 mg for three to four weeks, Aromasin demonstrates its true potential. It should be stored at a controlled temperature of 25°C (77°F) with excursions permitted to 15°–30°C (59°–86°F).

Pros and cons of steroids for athletesThe use of steroids by athletes has been on a high for many decades and athletes of all shapes and sizes have been experimenting with attaining the benefits of steroids during training to deliver top-notch performance.

It is believed by some players that the use of steroids and professional sports is often exploited by the media, which do not think twice before diminishing the character of the players.

It is worthwhile to note here that the media has always tried to seek an advantageous position, which is evident from the fact that it has done almost nothing to prevent the use and popularity of steroids by any means and is always keen to take the glamour out of using steroids.

No end to controversy over steroids in baseballThe steroid era in baseball may have been an amazing black eye for the sport but it seems like that there is no end to the growing popularity of anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs in baseball.

All this surely suggest that steroids were and will be a part of baseball and other sports in the future as well. Athletes don’t mind using their body as a tool for putting them at top of the sports mountain to stay close to name, fame, and recognition and the doping policies are often ineffective, to say the least.

More and more sportsmen are expected to join the lucrative world of steroids as they make an athlete feel a sense of being superhuman and benefits of steroids surely outweigh all factors that could have possibly inhibited the use of steroids.

One year sentence for Phoenix steroid prescriberJesse Haggard, a Phoenix naturopath who became a steroid prescriber, after his role was highlighted by an investigation into an Alabama pharmacy that allegedly provided steroids to John Rocker, Jose Canseco, and Evander Holyfield and many other athletes. Haggard was sentenced in May to a year and a day in prison.

Haggard appreciated the therapeutic benefits of steroids on radio appearances post his indictment after fleeing to Costa Rica. He, however, told U.S. District Judge Ginny Granade that he regretted making those statements.

It is clearly evident that there is just no stopping when it comes to the relationship between steroids and sports.

Heart damage in children with Kawasaki's disease can be effectively treated with steroidsAccording to a study addressing a knowledge gap, the use of steroids can be an effective option to minimize the odds of developing heart damage in children with Kawasaki‘s disease. This finding was disclosed in an issue of Pediatrics.

It is worth noting that the present guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics state that evidence for efficacy of steroid treatment is lacking. Moreover, aspirin and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) are part of the standard treatment for Kawasaki‘s disease as per the guidelines.

When left untreated for five to ten days, Kawasaki‘s disease can lead to serious complications.

Young boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy can now walk for longerAs per results of a recently concluded study, boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy can walk for longer on their own after getting themselves treated with daily steroid treatment. It was also remarked during the study that steroid treatment can help them reduce the risk of scoliosis to a significant extent.

The results were part of a published study in an issue of Neurology, the scientific journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

However, it was remarked that benefits of steroid treatment for boys with muscular dystrophy may come at the cost of some side effects and doctors must be highly careful while advising steroid treatment.

Children with Kawasaki's disease can benefit from steroidsAccording to a study that was published in an issue of Pediatrics, steroids can prove their real worth when it comes to reducing damage to the heart in children with Kawasaki’s disease.

This study was quick to highlight knowledge gap among members of the medical fraternity for treating Kawasaki’s disease since the present guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics suggest that there is little evidence for suggesting the effectiveness of steroids for treating children with Kawasaki’s disease and reducing damage to the heart.

Stephen Aronoff, MD, lead author of the meta-analysis and Temple University School of Medicine professor and chair of pediatrics, said that a multi-center study will be more than useful in justifying steroid treatment benefits for Kawasaki’s disease.

The study also brought forward recommendations being made available for the standard treatment of Kawasaki’s via aspirin and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG).

Heart Damage gets reduced with steroids in children with Kawasaki's diseaseAccording to a study in an issue of Pediatrics, steroids can considerably minimize the odds of development of heart damage in children with Kawasaki’s disease. These findings address a serious gap in knowledge, as felt by some experts.

It is worth noting here that the present-day guidelines from the American Academy of  Pediatrics state that supporting evidence for steroid treatment is lacking. The Academy advocates the use of aspirin and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) for treating Kawasaki’s disease.

It was remarked by Aronoff that many more presently underway studies will provide further evidence of the advantages of steroid treatment along with guidelines for effective types and doses of steroids. These findings will help medical practitioners to be confident while prescribing steroids to their patients after a pros-and-cons study has been evaluated at the first place.

Boys with Muscle Dystrophy walk longer with daily steroid treatmentBoys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy who were previously unable to walk on their own for long can now have a sigh of relief. According to a recent study, daily steroid treatment allows them to walk on their own and minimize the risk of scoliosis to a considerable extent.

The results were part of a study that was published in the May 8, 2007, issue of Neurology, the scientific journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

It was remarked that the benefits of steroids come at a cost of side effects and it is best to weigh the benefits and risk of steroid treatments before making any decision. The study is expected to bring smiles on the faces of patients and parents of these patients who have been long expecting a cure for this disorder.
