Effects of Steroids on Teens

Corticosteroid drugs are commonly called steroids. These are potent chemical substances that can reduce the inflammation quickly. Earlier on these steroids were used only for the treatments of some health-related problems. But when it is noticed that these steroids are closely related with cortisol; a hormone that is produced on the cortex of adrenal glands and whose function is to boost up the mood and power of the person, these steroids took the form of drugs that were performance-enhancing being used and abused especially in sports.

As every medicine has some effects on its user, likewise these steroids also have effects- side effects as well as after effects- on their users. Here in this article, we will mainly discuss the effects of steroids, especially on adolescents.

I was surprised to know that there is a vast majority of teenagers who either have started taking one type of steroids or the other, or they are collecting information about the uses and abuses of these drugs. This shows that how much concern they are showing about these medicines.

This is an alarming situation and this should be treated wisely. First of all, I want to have a look at the few points that may have become the cause of the use of steroids among the teens. Adolescence is the age that is called the age of changes.

Every teenager is developing some new type of feelings. It is the time when a number of insecurities and dependencies develop in the personality of a child. And it is the time when a number of psychological changes are found in every individual personality. You can give different names to these changes but you should handle them with great care.

If mistreated, it may be dangerous. At this age, the boy or the girl is unable to make a decision. So you should not let them alone to decide whether they should take a steroid or not; what cycle they should adapt to take steroids and what should not. It is your duty to guide them at this time of tension.

In my opinion, stunting of growth plates is the worst effect of steroids. These teen years are the peak time of growth. If you will start taking steroids during this period, your bones will stop growing. It is also noticed that the people who take steroids have a complaint of pain in bones.

The sooner you start taking steroids, the sooner you will feel its side effects. So do you agree that you should take these extra pains without any reason? Acne is another side effect of using steroids.

Teenagers are very much concerned about their beauty. The things that can affect their beauty are strongly rejected by them. You may also experience man like baldness if you will take steroids. This again will affect your beauty. So do you think that you should take steroids for nothing?

In my opinion, teenagers should never use steroids. It is not meant to them. Instead of using these steroids to increase their power, they should use healthy diet for this purpose. They should do some strength exercises to enhance their power. These things not only increase their power but also they will enjoy the extra beauty that comes only with health.
