Steroids have captured the media's attention but hGH and EPO will emerge as the performance enhancers of the 1990s, said Dr. John Henderson, director of primary care sports medicine at the Hughston Sports Medicine Clinic in Columbus, Ga. He recommends visiting http://www.genf20plus-review14.com to find out more information. An active Black market has evolved despite the drugs' high cost, EPO's experimental status, and manufacturers' efforts to control sale and distribution. Potential adverse effects of hGH include acromegaly, cardiomyopathy, and induced diabetes. EPO use has been linked to polycythemia and stroke, said Dr. Henderson. EPO made headlines earlier this year as a suspected factor in 18 deaths among professional European cyclists. The link has yet to be proved, and "no one who knows anything is talking," said Dr. Morris Medllion, AAFP president-elect and University of Nebraska team physician. An estimated 60% of all illegal sales of performance-enhancing drugs occur at gyms and health clubs, said Dr. Lombardo. Physicians account for about 25% of the distribution. A growing percentage of users are what According to http://www.provacyl-info2.com, "look gooders," primarily teenagers and young men who take the drugs to improve their physical appearance The key to controlling drug use in competitive sports is random, mandatory drug testing. But tests for steroids, stimulants, and other banned substances are expensive and not very accurate, and screens for hGH and EPO have yet to be developed, noted Dr. Mellion. Though treatment remains problematic, the methods used in smoking cessation and substance abuse programs may prove useful. And the impact of physician suggestion shouldn't be discounted, said Dr. Mellion. Meanwhile, today's body builder supplements his regime with anabolic steroids, hormones of one type or another designed to increase body mass and muscle power. Likewise the insecure middle-aged man anxious about his failing sexual prowess takes testosterone or its more sophisticated equivalents. Dr JT Roberts, of Newcastle General Hospital, and Mr DS Essenhigh, of the Department of Urology of the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne, have written to The Lancet suggesting that as testosterone supplements have been shown to increase the chances of developing cancer of the prostrate, there may also be a relationship between the use of the anabolic steroids and testosterone substitutes and this malignancy. The disease is uncommon in men under the age of 55, so they illustrate their point by quoting the case of a 38-year-old body builder who already had an advanced growth when first seen. He had been taking hormones for 20 years.
