  • Any Recommendations on Steroids for muscle growth?

    Posted by Phil on October 23, 2023 at 9:40 pm

    Cystic fibrosis effects nutritional absorption and effects muscle growth. Does anyone have any experience with the use of steroids to enhance muscle growth combined with a gym regime for middle age men with cystic fibrosis? Some comments and suggestions are appreciated.

    I would speak with your doctor or another medical professional regarding this issue. They would know better as to what would benefit you as CF is different for everyone.

    Don’t!

    Unless your Dr prescribes and closely supervises them.

    Premature death and heart failure are all too common .

    Also, just because I know this as a huge baseball fan and have seen what has become of my favorite athletes growing up, I wouldn’t recommend it because the long term results for sure outweigh the short term gains.
