Women with higher DHEAs have effective cognitive functionWomen with naturally increased levels of DHEAs, the hormone precursor, were found to perform better in terms of cognitive function than their counterparts with reduced levels. This finding appeared in the March issue of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (JCEM).

This study revealed that cognitively intact women with increased circulating levels of DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) in the form of DHEA sulfate (DHEAS) fared better on executive function, concentration, and working memory tests.

Other researchers involved in the study were Sonal M. Shah, Dean P. McKenzie, Jayashri Kulkarni, Sonia L. Davison, and Robin J. Bell, all of the Monash University.

Unwitting victims of steroids foundEarlier this month, there was breaking news about certain dietary supplements containing steroid or steroid-like substances. In a report published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, August issue, doctors from Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit presented several cases of patients who underwent an ordeal from using these dietary supplements.

The first case presented was that of a 21-year old male who had symptoms of nausea, anorexia, jaundice and severe itching. It was found that he used an over-the-counter supplement, Superdrol. This supplement contained methasteron.

Another patient presented with jaundice, intense itching, overall fatigue, nausea, decreased energy, weight loss and scleral icterus. He was finally admitted to the hospital due to renal failure.

The third case was that of a 30-year old businessman. His symptoms include jaundice and severe itching. He admitted to using a bodybuilding supplement containing dehydroepiandrosterone.

FDA is currently investigating on several dietary supplement manufacturers. The first to be recalled were Xtreme products sold by American Cellular Laboratories. The list, however, does not end there. There is also another potent drug identified as Madol. The FDA advised the public to immediately stop using any bodybuilding products containing steroid-like substances.

From L.A. Times:

The body-building world is not for the weak of body. And body-building supplements might not be for the faint of heart. Three new case reports highlight what can happen.

In a report published in the August issue of Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, doctors at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit recount the medical ordeal of otherwise healthy men (described as “unwitting victims”) who consumed dietary supplements laced (perhaps more than laced) with steroids. Topping the list are nausea, anorexia, jaundice, extreme itching and kidney failure. Then, when the light bulb goes off, the cessation of such supplements and hospitalization.

  HAMILTON SAY GOODBYE TO CYCLING WORLD

HAMILTON SAY GOODBYE TO CYCLING WORLDTyler Hamilton, the American cyclist, declared his retirement from the international scenario on Friday due to his positive test findings for a banned substance. Hamilton said that he was battling from depression.

Prior to declaration, Hamilton, the Olympic gold-medal winner, confessed of taking an over-the-counter homeopathic anti-depressant containing the steroid dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), which is on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s list of banned substances.

In a teleconference the emotional cyclist said, “There are times when you are at such a low, low point anything that you can do — if it was taking a hammer and hitting yourself over the head you’d do it to feel better.” He also said, “I was desperate. Was it the right decision? Absolutely not. At the time I didn’t think about the consequences. The people who suffer from the disease of depression…understand my drastic decision.”

The 38-year-old cyclist said that in 2003 he was first detected with depression and accepted that he got positive for DHEA during an out-of-competition test on February 9 while he was training for the Tour of California. However, Hamilton had denied the allegations that he used the steroid to enhance his performance in his next-to-last finish in the race.

The U.S. national road champion, Hamilton won a gold medal in the 2004 Athens Olympic. It was in the month of September of that year only that he tested positive for blood doping and got a two-year suspension ban. Meanwhile, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) said that despite Hamilton’s retirement, it would reveal the cyclist’s sanction “in the coming months.”

According to the WADA code, a player is subject to a ban from eight years to life time if he is charged second time in a doping offence.
