A recent research survey was carried out to try and determine the adverse effects associated with continued use of steroids. The population consisted of 970 respondents who were pooled into several categories according to their levels respective levels of addiction to the hormone-based drug. In one of the steroid group, which consisted of highly addicted population, it was found out that about half of the respondents developed severe shock-related problems just 27 hours after exposure to supportive therapy.
The condition, according to preliminary investigations, resulted due to the many psychological problems which, in turn were due to the realisation that the desired results had not been achieved, and they were now the laughingstock of the public. Efforts were made by the researchers to assure the respondents that the purpose of the research was not to humiliate them but offer them a chance to share and be part of the solution rather than a part of the problem.
The response of the respondents, that is, the way in which they carried themselves, which had a bearing on the results, was attributed to the use of the steroids. They generally avoided the topic and when they showed signs of being in a jovial mood, the asked if there was a way out of their problem as far as the ongoing research on the abuse of steroids was concerned. In a completely different study group consisting of addicted steroid users, one patient succumbed to skeptic shock and died after 26 hours of extubation. Another respondent developed breathing difficulties and died just two hours later.
One of the principal outcomes of the research was that the way individuals responded to therapy was determined by many overriding factors, the most significant of which was the risk factors that the patient was in as a result of his immunity to infections and stress threshold. What was relied on more in order to get a more conclusive finding was the quest for a harmonized analysis found in previous studies. This review, it was hoped, would add more content and precision of expounding on the research objectives, which it surely did. This is how the findings were arrived at. For one, steroids were found to present a major share into the global incidences of laryngeal complications as a result of steroid use.
When steroids were introduced in large doses during the research, they appeared to have a positive effect which was reflected in 87 percent of the population, but there was no such effect when only a one-dose pattern was introduced. The sustainability of this effect on patients was not maintained in those patients who had lower levels of steroid abuse. These findings are clinically very significant in that they confirm the worst-held fears that the more you are addicted, the more you need in order to become satisfied.
However, most of these side effects resulted from a wide array of factors, including stress due to unaccomplished dreams at a time when the stakes were too high.
