Anabolic Steroids help HIV people put weight and muscle massPatients suffering from HIV and treated with anabolic steroids for preventing AIDS wasting seem to experience modest gains in muscle mass and weight, according to suggestions of a new review.

This review covered 13 studies of adults aged 24-42 with HIV. While 294 of them received anabolic steroids, 238 were administered with placebo. It was noticed during the review that the average weight increase in those treated with anabolic steroids was nearly three pounds.

From News-Medical.Net:

AIDS wasting, which leads to significant weight loss in people with HIV, causes severe loss of weight and muscle and can lead to muscle weakness, organ failure and shortened lifespan. Researchers have long sought to reverse this common, destructive effect of HIV with mixed success.

The wasting stems from loss of the body’s ability to grow muscle and from low levels of testosterone.

Anabolic steroids are synthetic substances similar to the male sex hormone testosterone that promote growth of skeletal muscle and the development of male sexual characteristics.

Although most recently in the news for their misuse by professional athletes, anabolic steroids have legitimate medical application for men with low testosterone and people with certain types of anemia. Two anabolic steroids available in the United States, nandrolone decanoate and oxandrolone, have been used to help increase weight and muscle mass in small studies of people with wasting.

Conversely, anabolic steroid use has been associated with increased rates of HIV in those who share needles or use nonsterile needles when they inject steroids.

It was remarked by lead author Karen Johns, a medical assessment officer from the agency Health Canada, that the risks and side effects of using anabolic steroids in the long-term is a cause of concern.
