Increasing Number Of Men Are Afflicted With Bigorexia

Colin Tyrie, public health advisor at Manchester Mental Health NHS Trust, has issued a warning of an off-the-scale demand for ‘bodybuilder drugs’ in Greater Manchester. Last year, police made 1,488 seizures of steroids across the region that is almost double the previous year’s total of 799.

The ‘needle shots’ of anabolic androgenic steroids can be made for as little as £2 and use of these drugs is extending well beyond amateur and professional bodybuilders. In the last few years, steroid use has been greatly associated with police officers, builders, and security guards. A NHS-run Pump Clinic in Ancoats that provides advice on anabolic steroids and operates a needle service for ensuring that the drugs are used safely have about 600 steroid users on the books. The NHS-run Pump Clinic is now seeing athletes from rugby, cycling, and young actors.

It is believed by some experts that men drawn to anabolic steroids could be suffering from ‘Adonis body syndrome’ or ‘Bigorexia’. Bigorexia (also known as Muscle dysmorphia or Reverse anorexia) is a disorder in which an individual becomes obsessed with the illusion that he or she is not muscular enough. The use of steroids in long-term or steroid abuse (or overdosing) can be associated with the development or aggravation of side effects like hair loss, acne, and shrunken testicles. Steroid abuse can also be a reason behind problems with the liver, heart, kidney, and fertility. Use of injectable steroids through shared needles can increase the possibility of contracting HIV and Hepatitis B and C.

Tyrie remarked the ‘trickle’ of people coming to the clinic has become a torrent due to the growing pressure on young men to have a ‘good’ physical appearance. The health expert expressed fears that the new market for anabolic androgenic steroids may create health problems and remarked when they were really easily accessible but with a smaller demand, we tended not to get a lot of problems with them. Tyrie added that the people who were using them knew a bit more about it and they researched them to an extent and they were generally athletes or body builders. He said now it’s gone off the scale with people doing it for emerging reasons and they might be less inclined to do the research required. Tyrie added the male role in society has become quite damaged and it is not sure what it is any more. The public health advisor added that men don’t have an identity like our fathers did so there’s this sense we’re trying to fulfill that. He went on to add that there is quite a strong prevalence of this amongst white working class males and it is a quick way to get prestige to say ‘yes I’m a big bloke’ and all the associations that go with that.

Tyrie said further study was needed to understand the long-term effects of anabolic steroids and also remarked if there is a ticking health time-bomb, we are pushing users away by criminalizing them more and more and that is what is happened in the past with drugs

Steroids Were Found In Body Of Chris Benoit – cliff notes

Dr. Kris Sperry, Georgia’s chief medical examiner, has revealed that professional wrestler Chris Benoit, who killed his wife and son before hanging himself, injected anabolic steroids not long before he died. The medical examiner also said the son of Chris was sedated before his death.

The 40-year-old wrestler, who was nicknamed “The Rabid Wolverine” and “The Canadian Crippler,” as found dead with his wife, Nancy, and 7-year-old son, Daniel, on June 25, 2007 in their suburban Atlanta home.

Toxicology tests found drugs in all three Benoits, according to Dr. Sperry, who said elevated levels of steroid testosterone were found in the body of Chris Benoit and the anxiety drug Xanax was in the body of his 7-year-old son, Daniel.

The elevated level “is an indicator that he had been injecting testosterone, but how much, how frequently, how often and for how long is something that cannot be answered through this,” Dr. Sperry said.

According to investigators, anabolic steroids were among prescription drugs found in the home of Benoit. The urine of Benoit had about 10 times the normal level of testosterone, which is a form of doping in sports. The wrestler’s body also had traces of hydrocodone, a pain reliever, and Xanax and no other steroids were found.

Chris Benoit’s Last Match

The employer of Benoit, @World Wrestling Entertainment, made a statement that the professional wrestler had passed a random drug test in April.

The family physician, Phillippe Astin, M.D., who prescribed anabolic steroids to Chris Benoit in the year before the double murder-suicide went to trial on March 16, 2009 though there was not even a single charge related to anabolic steroids against him. The doctor faced charges of distributing and dispensing approximately one million dosage units of painkillers and stimulants classified as controlled substances, which included Percocet, Oxycontin, Demerol, Lorcet, Ritalin, Vicodin, Xanax, Klonipin, Methadone, Ritalin, Adderall, Dexedrine and Soma “for other than a legitimate medical purpose and not in the usual course of professional practice.”

Chris Benoit was identified by DEA Diversion Investigator Anissa Jones as an “excess purchaser of injectable steroids” during a federal investigation of Rx Weight Loss in Marietta, Georgia. Prescription records obtained from Jones Pharmacy in Fayetteville, Georgia suggested that Chris Benoit was prescribed 10-month supply of testosterone cypionate every 3-4 weeks from May 4, 2006 to May 9, 2007 on the prescription of Dr. Phil Astin.

In February 2006, Benoit received steroids from Signature, based on a prescription by Florida physician Gary Brandwein. The steroid pharmacy was also supplying anabolic steroids to top wrestlers Randy Orton, Charles Haas, Jr., Adam “Edge” Copeland, Robert “Booker T” Huffman, Shane Helms, Mike Bucci, Anthony Carelli, John “Johnny Nitro” Hennigan, Darren “William Regal” Matthews, Ken “Mr. Kennedy” Anderson, Eddie “Umaga” Fatu, Shoichi Funaki, and Chavo Guerrero.

Over a period of approximately 30 months between December 13, 2004 and June 22, 2007, Chris Benoit was prescribed 5,580 tablets of Lorcet (10mg), 3,600 tablets of Xanax (2mg), and 1380 tablets of Soma (350mg) while 3,690 tablets of Lorcet (10mg), 600 tablets of Xanax (2mg) and 240 tablets of Soma (350mg) between June 6, 2005 and May 30, 2007 to Nancy Benoit, his wife.

  Some side effects of steroids injection

Some side effects of steroids injectionThere are many known side effects to steroids use both short term and long term. It actually depends on the type of compounds used as each compound exhibits different effects in the body. Some may report feelings of nausea, dizziness and fainting while may experience no side effects at all. On example is Robby Robinson, a professional bodybuilding champion who recently came out against the use of anabolic steroids. He claimed to have experienced nausea, dizziness, lightheadedness and almost fainted after his first injection of Primobolan.

Primobolan or methenolone enanthate generally exhibits milder side effects compared with other compounds. Some of those reported side effects were oily skin, acne, hirsutism and increased male pattern baldness. There is a possibility that reported side effects are not directly related to steroids use. It may just be effects of anxiety. Most people, even bodybuilders, have a certain fear of needles. Added to this, steroid users may not be comfortable with the idea of some foreign substance entering into the body.

There are of course real side effects to steroids injection such as coughing fits reportedly occurring after injection. This may be due to the rapid movement of the substance towards the lungs as transported by major arteries in the thigh or gluteal areas, the common sites for injection.

If you happen to experience any of this symptoms, then it is time to consider switching to orals or to re-consider taking any AAS at all

  Which is better during pregnancy, oral or injectable?

Which is better during pregnancy, oral or injectable?During pregnancy, using steroids as medication should be in such emergency cases wherein the child could be more affected by the medical illness rather than by the method of treatment.

Many cases have been reported wherein steroid injections or tablets were given during the time of pregnancy. One particular case is with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). SLE is an auto immune disease affecting mostly women in their child bearing age. Such a use definitely has effects to the unborn child but only in a mild way. If steroids really must be used, then a physician should be consulted, preferably a specialist handling your specific condition.

Usage of steroids to treat asthma during pregnancy has long been debated, although there have not been any harmful effects reported with the use of inhaled steroids or preventive inhalers during pregnancy. Experts have drawn a conclusion that it pays more to prevent asthma by using steroids during pregnancy and there has not been any side effects reported to stop such method of treatment.

The conclusion, steroids in tablet or injection contain the same composition and usage of either method is just the same. This stresses the fact that the aim is to avoid any condition which could be crucial during pregnancy. If it is possible to opt for a minimal dosage, do so or else discontinue any usage and ask your doctor for an alternative.
