Depending on the length of drug abuse, there is a chance that the immune system can be damaged. Most of these side-effects are dose-dependent, the most common being elevated blood pressure, especially in those with pre-existing hypertension,[SUP][/SUP] and harmful changes in cholesterol levels: Some steroids cause an increase in LDL "bad" cholesterol and a decrease in HDL "good" cholesterol.[SUP][/SUP] Anabolic steroids have been shown to alter fasting blood sugar and glucose tolerance tests.[SUP][/SUP] Anabolic steroids such as testosterone also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease[SUP][/SUP] or coronary artery disease.[SUP][/SUP][SUP][/SUP] Acne is fairly common among anabolic steroid users, mostly due to stimulation of the sebaceous glands by increased testosterone levels.[SUP][/SUP][SUP][/SUP] Conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) can accelerate the rate of premature baldness for males genetically predisposed, but testosterone itself can produce baldness in females.[SUP][48
[/SUP]There are also sex-specific side-effects of anabolic steroids. Development of breast tissue in males, a condition called gynecomastia (which is usually caused by high levels of circulatingestradiol), may arise because of increased conversion of testosterone to estradiol by the enzyme aromatase.[SUP][/SUP] Reduced sexual function and temporary infertility can also occur in males.[SUP][/SUP][SUP][/SUP][SUP][/SUP] Another male-specific side-effect that can occur is testicular atrophy, caused by the suppression of natural testosterone levels, which inhibits production of sperm (most of the mass of the testes is developing sperm).
I say go for it, Mike. It doesn't sound like it'd be much different from your current health situation.
