hep c infection from steroids
Jun 17, 2007
Can Hepatitis be transmitted from 'homebrew' steroids? These are produced via turning the testosterone powder into oil etc. Benzyl alcohol is sometimes used.
Response from Dr. McGovern
Never heard of this but will simply say that viral hepatitis needs exposure to blood. However, there is drug induced hepatitis, and any drug can do that, although some are more likely than others.
