Bodybuilding steroids can lead to kidney damagePerformance enhancing drugs or bodybuilding steroids that have been used to build solid muscle mass and enhance body strength could lead to kidney damage, as per a paper presented at the American Society of Nephrology’s 42nd Annual Meeting and Scientific Exposition in San Diego, CA.

This finding is concerning in today’s times when more and more athletes are depending upon anabolic steroids to stay close to fame and success.

The finding, which was not recognized till now, also suggests that long-term or habitual use of steroids could lead to severe effects on the kidney.
