  • To the attention of Sydney users - Current or Past

    What have steroids done to your reproductive and cardiac health?

    Andrology Department at Concord Repatriation General Hospital is recruiting for a study to help answer these questions. We will provide you the results and will not cost anything to take part!

    The study is for men aged 18 to 50 years, exercising regularly (at least 3 times/week), currently using androgens or used in the past.

    The study requires you to have blood, urine and semen analysis (semen sample produced by masturbation in our collection room near the lab), ultrasound of testes (to assess testicular volume), body composition scan (looking at fat and muscle mass) and cardiac function tests (ECG, Echo and CT calcium score). All the information collected remains confidential.

    OR call us on 02 9767 7222 OR Email us on androgens.study@anzac.edu.au


    This study has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee - CRGH of the Sydney Local Health District

    😂 I don’t think you will find many brothers that fit the 3 month layoff criteria😂

      there is 'OR' in between the 2 words, meaning to say current user or a past user.
      Past user is defined as last use > 3 months ago.
      Current users most welcome.
      The 3 groups of men for comparison are current users, past users and non-users.
      Hope that clarifies

      You don't have to have stopped for 3 months for the study, that is how we've defined a past user.
      If you are a current user, you are most welcome

      Will we be getting our results back from the tests for our own use?

      You do get results of full blood count, kidney and liver tests, body composition scan, ECG, ECHO and CT calcium score.
      The hormone levels are for lab use and will not be released.

    It would be more appealing if you could confirm if participants of the study would receive their testing results.

        Not considered if you are medically prescribed testosterone.
        The study is aimed at men using non prescribed androgens.

      Shame they can't release all pathology to the participants. Nevertheless it is a useful and good exam to get done. I keep meaning to get a stress echo, Or at least an echo done.

      To Androgen Study. I think you will get a better uptake if you supply the other pathology tests. If they can release FBC and biochem then just as easy to include any androgen/hormone results .
      Anyway, just my 2c .

        The hormones are being assayed in a research lab, not a hospital/pathology lab accredited to give out results, hence the barrier.

      Ahh, fair enough.. thought was unusual to not give all results.
      You will probably become a long term Member of this forum as I have now become Lol
