Steroids (Anabolic)

Anabolic steroids are drugs that mimic the effects of the male steroids testosterone and dihydrotestosterone. They increase protein synthesis within cells, which results in the build-up of cellular tissue (anabolism), especially in muscles. Steroids are often abused in professional sports, as well as among adolescent boys and young men.
