Injection Techniqes Part 1 INJECTING STEROIDS There is much debate surrounding the question of whether injectable steroids are more or less effective and safe than oral steroids It is suggested that the oral steroids which have a special 17- alkylated chemical structure making them active orally and more difficult for the liver to break down may be more toxic to the liver In addition these oral steroids are subject to first pass metabolism meaning the liver is exposed to the drug at its highest concentration immediately after it is absorbed from the gastro-intestinal system On the other hand steroid users characteristically use very large doses of injectables and lesser doses of oral preparations One might hypothesise that the potential for these high doses of injectables to cause harm to the liver would more than outweigh the intrinsically greater liver damaging effects of oral steroids in smaller amounts In addition injecting is potentially more dangerous because in penetrating the skin the bodys natural defence against infection is bypassed The user thus potentially exposes themselves to a whole host of harmful infections like HIV Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C For this reason the following advice is of the utmost importance if you choose to inject steroids or other substances ALWAYS USE NEW AND STERILE NEEDLES AND SYRINGES EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU INJECT Also never share other injecting equipment which could have small traces of blood on it for example water swabs spoons tourniquets belts NEVER SHARE OTHER PEOPLES USED NEEDLES OR SYRINGES NEVER OFFER OR ALLOW OTHER PEOPLE TO SHARE YOUR USED NEEDLES AND SYRINGES EITHER Sharing of needles and syringes may expose you or other people to the risk of HIV hepatitis B and hepatitis c infection NEVER INJECT STEROIDS INTO A VEIN OR ARTERY because oil based drugs such as injectable steroids are made for intramuscular administration only
