Then there are the cardiovascular problems. Because of the way they affect heart cells, anabolic steroids can cause chronic high blood pressure, as well as enlargement of the heart. Your cholesterol levels also get thrown out of balance, since your steroid-saturated body is producing more LDL cholesterol and less HDL cholesterol , which is the opposite of what the American Heart Association recommends. The hormonal effects of steroid use also increase your risk of prostate cancer (if you’re male) and can cause kidney and liver damage.
One of the more worrying effects of steroid in an overloaded liver. This organ acts as the body’s filter, keeping the harmful things out and maintaining balance so that we can function steadily despite changes in the body. Steroid abuse over a long period can damage it and prevent it from doing its job. With a compromised liver, other diseases are likely to follow. The worse would be organ failure as this can lead to death. It is important to consult a doctor before embarking on any program that involves steroids to ensure good health.
Steroids have been noted to exert “hazardous” effects on the structure and function of the heart muscle.
