In the US, the most common form of steroid testing is more sophisticated than any of these three. It’s called antibody-antigen based radioimmunoassay. This term may sound complicated, but simply put, it uses a series of antibodies to seek out and measure the concentrations of antigens in the body. Hormones like anabolic steroids are considered antigens for this purpose, and the test is surprisingly accurate. If an individual tests positive, though, chromatography is performed. This process passes either blood or urine through a very specific medium to measure the rates at which different components move. It is even more accurate than the radioimmunoassay procedure, and is used mostly by anti-doping agencies.
All anabolic or androgenic steroids when taken in doses sufficient to promote muscle gain are expected to suppress endogenous testosterone production.
Nandrolone exhibits significant binding affinity for the progesterone receptor. Progestogenic side effects are almost identical to Estrogenic side effects, and they include: severe endogenous Testosterone production shutdown/suppression, gynecomastia, water retention and enhanced rate of fat storage. Therefore it is recommended to use the anti-prolactin and anti-aromatase drugs.
Military and Government employment. I have yet to meet anyone in the military or government that has been tested for steroids? I know they have the ability to do this, but I have yet to hear of anyone actually being tested? I would imagine the only time anyone in the government or military would be tested for steroids is if they were previously arrested or had some kind of run in with the law pertaining to steroids and even then I doubt they would go through the trouble to test you. If anyone reading this has been tested by the military or government please email me and let me know, I would be interested to hear more about it.
