Major

High Cholesterol (Hyperlipoproteinemia, Hypertriglyceridemia, Sitosterolemia)

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

androgens - hyperlipoproteinemia

Androgenic anabolic steroids may adversely affect serum lipids, including lowering HDL and elevating LDL levels. These changes can be marked, particularly with the 17-alpha-alkyl derivatives (i.e., fluoxymesterone, methyltestosterone, oxandrolone, oxymetholone, and stanozolol), and may significantly impact the risk of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. Patients with preexisting hyperlipoproteinemia may require closer monitoring during therapy with androgenic agents, and adjustments made accordingly in their lipid-lowering regimen. Androgen therapy should be administered cautiously in patients with coronary artery disease or a history of ischemic heart disease.
