what are bad things about steroids?

Response from Dr. Young

Steroids can be a very important part of medication therapy for patients.

That said, steroids shouldn't be used without an understanding of the potential benefit and risk. Risks, you ask? Try diabetes, hypertension, avascular necrosis (of the joints), liver disesase, just to name a few.

Needless to say, I'm not a big fan of anabolic steroids simply for the building of extra muscle mass. BY
