Anyone know what are the markers they look for when testing for steroids in MLB or other sports? What foods, herbs, supplemennts (other than the obvious andro or other pro-hormones) - non-steroid thingies may result in a positive test? I've heard colostrum raises IGF-1 levels and that may result in positive test results...any info greatly appreciated

bushy hit it on the head. if i can recall correctly the ratio is 6:1 test to epitest. naything over this is a positive. i am 99% sure the NCAA does not test for compounds, it is way too expensive to test a whole team. now individually it might be different b/c someone might have tipped them off (i.e coaches, other players, etc). i have gone through many NCAA drug tests and have grilled the trainers on what they test for and they were very honest with me. here is a list and the definitons:
hope this helps.
You are correct. In fact,last year the Olympic commitee was talking about the need in developing a test that could detect HGH. Too many records being broken I guess.
Hope you don't mind me throwing out a few related questions.
Is steroid testing included in the drug testing that employers would typically do?
Is there any relationship that exists between an individual that uses steroids and a positive urine drug test?
A typical employer drug screen whether it's a 8, 10 or 12 panel doesn't test for roids. It's too expensive.
I know in powerlifting you pop with a 6:1.
Ed Coan was banned from the IPF due to a 6:1, which he popped for twice.
