Resumen

MARTINEZ-ORTELLADO, Hugo G.. Anabolic Steroid Use in Young People of Asuncion. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.1, pp.57-62. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2017.015(01)57-062.

Anabolic steroids, typically used by young people, athletes and bodybuilders to increase muscle and strength, are dangerous, accessible and are prescribed incorrectly as effective, but with low risk. Not only athletes consume anabolic steroids. Some young people take them to look more muscular or for fat burning. The study had the following objectives: To identify factors associated with the use of anabolic steroids in 16 to 25 years young people who attend the Family Fitness Caff Gym in Asuncion, to know the socio-demographic data, characterize the knowledge and use of anabolic steroids in the gym, and determine the consumption factor of anabolic steroids according to the practice in the gym. This was an observational descriptive cross-sectional study. The study had the participation of 41 young people, mostly from Asuncion. In relation to the factors, it was determined that their use was motivated to improve their physical appearance; this is to say, for an aesthetic factor as well as for the participation in fitness competitions.

Palabras clave : Anabolic steroids; factors; young people.
