Kidney effects[edit]

"Kidney problems

Kidney tests revealed that nine of the ten bodybuilders developed a condition called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, a type of scarring within the kidneys. The kidney damage in the bodybuilders has similarities to that seen in morbidly obese patients, but appears to be even more severe.[95]"

This sentence appears misleading. [95] studied 10 steroid using body builders who have severe kidney damage and noted that 9 out of the 10 had FSGS. It said nothing about the prevalence of kidney failure in steroid users. The sentence seems to suggest that steroid users have a high risk of kidney injury. [95] does not support that idea. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.34.207.79 (talk) 23:04, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Anabolic steroids and testicles[edit]

In this edit, an IP editor removed text that appeared to claim that the androgenic and virilizing properties of anabolic steroids cause growth of the testicles, with the comment "I deleted (increased testicle size from the initial summary because they would normally decrease testicle size, as they mimic the effect of testosterone which inhibits hormones FSH and LH secretion which usually have a trophic effect on testicle size." I think the IP editor is correct on this, as steroids are notorious for this effect: see [1], or search for "steroid testicular atrophy" in general. -- The Anome (talk) 09:45, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Usage section copied without attribution[edit]

It looks like the contents of the Usage section have been copied verbatim to the Anabolic-androgenic steroids abuse article without attribution. @Msrainbow: Typically such attribution may be provided in the edit summary. For example, "Copying usage information from Anabolic steroid article". At least that way there is a trail back to the original contributors. Kaldari (talk) 06:58, 3 August 2016 (UTC)
