Kidney patient taking steriods for treatment gets severe mensural time abdominal pain?

My wife is a kidney patient for which takes steroid tablets for treatment a very mininal dose. That causes lot of unwanted and unexpected problems every time with a different one. Now for the past 2 months she gets severe abdominal pain during mensuration time. Can any body give a solution to this. I will be extremely thankful for the right guidence.

I don't know what kind of kidney problems your wife has or what specific steroid she is on but hopefully I can offer some insight. I had end stage renal failure, a nephrectomy, and a kidney transplant when I was 17 (19 now) and I've been on prednisone for a very long time (5 mg/day). I find it strange that your wife is menstruating at all, because I didn't and still don't even though I have one kidney now. Usually women with kidney problems stop menstruating (again, I don't know exactly what her diagnosis is) because they become anemic and the kidneys produce erythropoietin that helps with red blood cell production. I would talk to her doctor to see if there is anything irregular and talk about every option. (I like to do alot of research before I go to the doctor and discuss medication because sometimes they don't tell you about all the options, and I like to be well informed) Unfortunately, every medication I'm on gives me side effects, it's just kind of something we have to deal with. Also, if birth control is an option, certain kinds (Yaz, for example) usually help with menstrual cramps. I guess my simple answer is just do some research and talk in-depth with your doctor. I hope everything works out for her.

How can you tell if someone is taking steriods?

I think my brother may be taking them, and I am just curious of some of the signs and symptoms.

Signs of steroid use: (Anabolic Steroids - They're also known as roids, juice, hype, or pump).

Quick weight and muscle gains (when used in a weight training program), Aggressiveness and combativeness, Jaundice, Purple or red spots on the body, Swelling of feet and lower legs, Trembling, Unexplained darkening of the skin, Persistent unpleasant breath odor, Severe acne breakouts and oily skin.

Health consequences include:

In boys and men, reduced sperm production, shrinking of the testicles, impotence, difficulty or pain in urinating, baldness, and irreversible breast enlargement (gynecomastia).
In adolescents of both sexes, premature termination of the adolescent growth spurt, so that for the rest of their lives, abusers remain shorter than they would have been without the drugs.

In males and females of all ages, potentially fatal liver cysts and liver cancer; blood clotting, cholesterol changes, and hypertension, each of which can promote heart attack and stroke; and acne. Although not all scientists agree, some interpret available evidence to show that anabolic steroid abuse- - particularly in high doses -- promotes aggression that can manifest itself as fighting, physical and sexual abuse, armed robbery, and property crimes such as burglary and vandalism. Upon stopping anabolic steroids, some abusers experience symptoms of depressed mood, fatigue, restlessness, loss of appetite, insomnia, reduced sex drive, headache, muscle and joint pain, and the desire to take more anabolic steroids.

In injectors, infections resulting from the use of shared needles or non-sterile equipment, including HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, and infective endocarditis, a potentially fatal inflammation of the inner lining of the heart. Bacterial infections can develop at the injection site, causing pain and abscess.

While some side effects appear quickly, others -- such as heart attacks and strokes-- may not show up for years. A pregnant woman who takes steroids risks harm to her unborn child. Ligaments and tendons may be more easily injured, and these injuries may take longer to heal.

If certain Anabolic Steriods are taking correctly is it possible to avoid any side effects?

Steriods have a big reputation as being extremely dangerous and viewed just like cocaine or heroine. 13 year old girls can take birth control which completly messes with their hormonal balance, which is not givin a second thought by society. I have spoken to plenty of people on this topic and I am contemplating on taking a mild steriod like equipoise. If i use correct PCT (post cycle therapy), like taking nolvadex or some other anti-estrogen can i gain strenghth and mass with no side effects.... Any insight from people that have used steriods or know what they are talking about will be greatly appreciated.

You won't gain much in strength. Steroids mainly give size. However they are drugs and addictive. There is nothing really to be gained from taking steroids. Just the aesthetics. However look up the old wrestling icons from the 80's and 90's and you'll see that many of them used steroids and got into harder drugs. Many were victims of heart attacks in their early 40's. You can build strength and muscle through different diet changes and proper technique.

If a man (or woman) is unnaturally large with huge muscles, is it safe to assume they are taking steriods?

I honestly am curious about this.

We've all seen this bodybuilders that are so huge so, my question is, is it really possible to get like that naturally? I watched a "naturally fit" bodybuilding contest where they tested for steriods. And, while they looked amazing, they were basically just extremely toned. No bulging muscles.

Just curious your thoughts, thanks!

some of them do get really big..without steroids...check out pictures of Skip Lacour....he competed all his life in natural his natural...but everybody blames him of taking steroids...also, his never fail a drug test in any competition...people are just jelous..because it take a lot of work and dedication to do it naturally..

What top superstars really is taking steriods in the wwe?

With this whole benoit case and wrestlers from 10 years ago are comming out of the closet on who is really taking steriods my question is who do you think that are top superstars that are or aren't taking steriods? I don't think lashley is taking steriods because he is a military man and when you are dedicated like him in the military working out is apart of life trust me I was in the military not only that he was an amature wrestler in the military. It's hard to tell with cena but even though I don't like the guy as much he doesn't take steroids either. He is big from football when he played in high school and college it says in his dvd. When your an athlete you find ways to work out especially when your in the wwe you don't have that much time to work out. I think batista might take steroids if not problably growth hormones because he is the slowest out of the 3 and not only that you can just see the effects on television. I named a couple what's your selection?

It is hard to tell who is big or stays big by hard workouts vs steroids. The Ultimate Warrior admited to taking them back in the day. I see no benefit to speculating.

How to minimize weight gain with taking steriods!?

I recently began taking prednisone for a medical condition, and know that most people on steriods gain weight during the process. Anyone have any suggestions on how to keep the weight gain down while I'm on the steriods? I will probably be on them for a couple of months.. Any help would be appreciated!

I was on 3 prednisone sessions last year. The bad news is I gained 25 lbs. You probably will be hungry, especially for carbs. Do not obey the urges! Eat a high fiber-high protein breakfast cereal like Kashi GoLean with a banana for Breakfast (the potassium in the banana is quite important). I good mid-morning snack that will help you is a Atkins shake. For lunch make a sandwich of WHOLE GRAIN (sprouted is better) bread with a reasonable amount of low pat meat (or better yet albacore tuna water packed) use mustard and add fresh non starchy veggies (Omega-3 light mayo in limited amount for tuna) add a low sodium V8 (water retention is a problem with prednisone) and a orange or apple or whatever fruit you prefer) For dinner I would suggest a Healthy Choice, Lean Cuisine or Southbeach frozen entree and add a plate of veggies or salad with dark green leafy veggies and either olive oil and vinegar or a low cal dressing. Drink your water. Limit your caffeine. I wish I'd done these things on prednisone. I am now, and since Jan, have dropped 16 lbs.
P.S. I hope you feel better soon
