High Blood Pressure
And Steroids Use

Researchers states that high blood pressure and steroids given in small amounts have negligible implications on your blood pressure.  It can be taken in the form of a pill or in injections form, but never to be taken in excess because excessive use can cause high blood pressure.

Steroids main use is to overcome pain and inflammation.

So What Is Steroid

Steroid is a type of organic compound that is made up of four rings that are all joined together.  The rings include cholesterol, your sex hormones called estradiol and testosterone, and the anti-flammatory drug called dexamethasone.

Steroids are found in plants, animals and fungi and are made in cells from animals and fungi or from plants.

But, they are different types of steroids:

Anabolic steroids include estrogen, cortisol, progesterone and testosterone that interact with androgen receptors to increase muscle and bone synthesis. They were developed to treat conditions in which testes did not produce sufficient testosterone for normal growth, development and sexual activities.

Sex steroids that produces sex differences or support reproduction, they include androgens, estrogens and progestagens.

How Steroid Raises Your Blood Pressure

Lots of drugs that are prescribed for other types of illnesses that are not related to blood pressure, like pain killers, do have some steroids in them.  They disrupt your body's natural blood pressure regulation systems causing high blood pressure

The good news is that once you stop taking them your pressure usually returns to normal.

Steroids raises your blood pressure by increasing the intensity of your heartbeat.  It also affects your body's mineral balance resulting in sodium retention and increased blood volume.

So you can see why these drugs should be avoided at all cost if you have any type of high blood pressure.

High Blood Pressure And Steroids Side Effects

One of the main side effects of steroid use is the increase in high blood pressure and we know that elevated blood pressure level is the silent killer.

We read so many stories of body builders who used steroid to build their muscles who end up with high blood pressure and other related illness like kidney disease.  With some even dying due to their body organs failure.

To-date researchers are still examining the relation between high blood pressure and steroids with evidence pointing to the heightened risk for cardiovascular disease with the constant use of steroids over a long period of time.
