Study about a Japanese girl running Drol 30mg for 6 YEARS!
Another study, that somewhat supports the previous hepatotoxicity case, showed the possibilities of hepatic adenomas(cysts in the liver) caused by androgenic-anabolic steroids. In this study, a Japanese girl was found to have multiple liver lesions after the use of the drug oxymetholone (aka Anadrol). Most everyone â??knowsâ?? that Anadrol is linked with liver problems, but a closer inspection into this study shows more.
Apparently, this girl, starting at the age of 14, was diagnosed with aplastic anemia. She was prescribed oxymetholone at 30mg per day. This continued for 6 years until the lesions first appeared. Assuming that the girl was most likely around 100 lbs., this was a pretty heavy dosage. If you extrapolated this data out to a 200 - 250lbs. male, that would be taking approximately 60 - 90mg of anadrol per day for 6 years. Ouch!
The researchers also stated that there were only 17 other cases of hepatic adenomas, found in English literature between 1975 and 1998. They failed to mention the causes of these 17 cases, but there is no reason to believe they were all using 17-AA androgens and 17 is certainly miniscule compared to the number of people who have used them. The authorsâ?? finish off the study by saying the following: “This report may be helpful in identifying the population who is at risk of developing hepatic sex hormone-related tumors.” So remember, if you’re a small 14-year-old girl taking 30mg of Anadrol per day for 6 years, you may be at risk!
So in theory, liver toxicity from oral steroids is extremely overated? And running an oral for 8-16 weeks at a moderate dose would be completly safe?
