What is anabolic steroid (Anabolic Steroid, Steroid, etc)?
Anabolic steroids (also called anabolic steroids, anabolic steroids, or anabolic/androgenic steroids) are synthetic drugs used to enhance body-building, muscle-building, or athletic performance in humans. The drug is usually taken orally. Some examples of anabolic steroids are prednisone, prednisolone, prednisolone sulfate, prednisone propionate, prednisolone acetonide, prednisone propionate, and prednisolone ethyl acetate.
Testosterone is a steroid hormone that is produced in the body. It is a strong muscle-building and athletic hormone. It is the primary male sex hormone, which promotes muscle mass and strength in men and is responsible for the development of muscle in women. Testosterone is mainly produced by the pituitary gland. Its main use is to increase muscle mass in people and has numerous other uses in medicine. It also is used for sports such as wrestling, weight lifting, and cycling.
Androgen replacement therapy is used to treat high levels of male sex hormones and is often used in combination with testosterone.
The main type of testosterone replacement therapy used in the US is a testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT) (topical and injectable) which is an injectable drug which is injected directly into the male sex organ. It is typically used after years of high levels of testosterone.
