Effects of exercise on lipid parameters of normal male subjects, with and without using power enhancing drugs / Faizan Mirza, Sadaf Ahmed. - (Pharma Innovation Journal 3 (2014) 10 (1 December); p. 64-68).


Abstract

Exercising is largely believed to reduce the chances of cardiovascular disorders. Many people opt for fatburning workouts to achieve a lean physique while others aim at getting a well-muscled body. The latter being a long and tiring process, pushes many people to opt for various power enhancing drugs, for boosting their athletic endurance and increasing the muscle bulk. We evaluated and compared the effects these drugs have had on, lipid parameters of male subjects. Peripheral blood samples were tested for levels of Total cholesterol, high density lipoproteins, low density lipoproteins, triglycerides and very low density lipoproteins. The results showed that drugs exerted a profound effect on all lipid parameters, suggesting that users are prone to various cardiovascular risks. It is suggested that the widespread usage of such drugs should be discouraged among the youth.
