The effects of anabolic steroids and strength training on the human immune response.I was just curious to know how a steroid such as EQ or an oral like Tbol stefoids Dbol or any other would affect your immune system. In a sense that it lowers your own protection and you would be more prone to catch colds or flus. Let me know if anybody can comment on this. I'm eystem curious cuz I seem to have had a sinus infection during my last cycle and would want to avoid it again as much as possible!!

do steroids lower your immune system?
There are currently 3 users browsing this thread. Allex, since you already had a thread going on basically the same topic, I merged the two threads. Results 1 to 25 of Do steroids weaken your immune system. Everything worked out great and got really nice results. Now i just came back from vacation and for the last week ive been getting the worst chills at night and in the morning which feels like a really bad fever. During the day it goes away then at night comes back. Its been a week now and i cant shake it.
Now i rarely get sick maybe like once a year. Do u think the juice played a part in this or just a coincidence??? Join Date Sep Posts So i would have to imagine that it is not a coincidence. I would not think so -- they give test to aids patients for wasting away.
Anabolic weakens your immune system: SCU study reveals serious side effects of performance enhancing drugs As the countdown continues to the Athens Olympics, a new study by a team of Southern Cross University SCU scientists has revealed serious new side effects of performance enhancing drugs.
The SCU study, led by Dr Robert Weatherby, has revealed that the use of anabolic steroids may significantly increase susceptibility to viral infections and cancers and raises questions about the dangers of long-term use of the banned substances.
The study, completed over six weeks under strict ethical and health controls, was carried out in conjunction with Mentorn, Channel 4 UK and New Scientist. The volunteers were divided into two groups. One group was injected with an anabolic steroid testosterone enanthate and the second group injected with a placebo.
The volunteers were then put through a training regime under the supervision of an Olympic standard coach. This reduction comes on top of the already reduced immune system that many athletes have through stressing their bodies with intensive training.
It is believed that the reduction in NK Cell activity would be even greater at the higher level of steroids normally taken by bodybuilders and sports people. The scientists also discovered significant psychological changes in those administered with testosterone, including effects on personality. These included a reduction in a psychological factor called sensitivity.
This finding is significant because very few drugs cause an actual change to the personality, rather than just heightening mood swings after which the user returns to normal.
The changes to personality result in a less empathetic, more compliant person who would take less responsibility for their actions. This may have legal implications, as for the first time, people using steroids who are charged with a criminal offence may be able to argue a defence of diminished responsibility.
Dr Weatherby said the results of the study demonstrated the need for further studies into the side-effects of performance enhancing drugs and SCU was considering avenues for ongoing research.
Other SCU academics and researchers took part in the project. Join Date Feb Posts Originally Posted by Alexander the Graet. Join Date May Posts Originally Posted by GoingBiG. Join Date Apr Posts Join Date Aug Location in your brainz Posts Originally Posted by fitnessNY.
My retarded friend that knows nothing about BB'ing said that his uncle did " steroids " and he dipped, and it killed him. I came down with a horrible flu for that lasted about 3 weeks. Eventually I ran across a couple of older people that were friends with my parents who had exactly the same symptoms that I had. Up until that point I was really questioning the gear I was taking. Everything was going great and then all of a sudden I had a fatigue and fever set in that really had me worried at the time.
I called a doctor friend of mine and did a lot of bloodwork and everything came back normal so he said it was a late season flu but I was still a bit skeptical about the diagnosis until I heard of the other cases.
When it comes down to it any point of view here is pure speculation but my experience says it will make you more susceptable to illness than normal. Join Date Aug Posts 2.

While coming off cycle, as testosterone levels are much lower and near 0, your immune system does get weak. On cycle, when your body is adapted to the high levels, I have never experienced a dip in any of my CBCs.
The fluctuation of the hormone levels, do however lower your immune response. I would not say its nessicarily the AAS itself, more as the change in homeostasis. This applies to many things though. There are, as posted, studies showing a negative impact, however Ive yet to find one that was conclusive. Most of them "possibly suggest" Thats my opinion. Steroids do not weaken your immune system. I love this comment Originally Posted by Ntpadude. I read something from a Harvard study that showed mixed results.
Of course all is relative to proper intake of protein, carbs and vitamens. There is also a very clear increase in white blood cells, just as most have problems with red blood cells as well having too many. I dont know if it does or doesnt lower your immune system.
I find it funny how im ok during the day then come 8 pm i get the worst chills and start to shake. Its been a week now with the same symptoms. If by monday its not gone im visiting the doc. Anyways went to doctor and he said i got a Neumonia. I got no idea how i got this fuken shyt. And never heard of anybody with it but there3 goes my training. I think that being sick and muscle growth are two totally different things in the same realm.
I mean, the fact that your muscles are growing doesnt mean that your not going to be susceptible to viruses or infections. Possibly even more so, considering your body is actively trying to recover from all the hard workouts which all of us most likely do.. But, the fact that aids patients take AS to maintain muscle who have weakened immune systems and can still maintain and build muscle while having a weakened immune system prove the fact they are two totally different actions, one does affect the other indirectly as opposed to directly.
If they directly affected each other, aids patients would not get AS The only relation is that if your sick, the AS will most likely keep you from wasting away as if you werent on it. And that overtraining may lower your immunity, and make you more susceptible to becoming sick.
