International Network of Humanistic Doping Research. By Ask Vest Christiansen & John Gleaves New name, same great network No, that’s not a typo on the newsletter.

International Network of Humanistic Doping Research

The new name of the network is: The International Network of Doping Research – INDR. At the business meeting held in conjunction with the recently convened conference it was decided to omit the notion ‘Humanistic’ (and the letter ‘H’ in the acronym) in the network’s name. The reasoning is that ‘humanistic’ may be excluding scholars from social science disciplines such as sociology, psychology, criminology and law. N the 27th and 28th of August 2015 members of the INDR assembled in Aarhus, Denmark for the network’s 6th International conference.

Professor Torbjörn Tännsjö, Stockholm University, Sweden: “Why the ban on doping is harmful” Professor Letizia Paoli, KU Leuven, Belgium: “War on drugs, war on doping? Unfortunately Lecturer Martin Hardie from Deakin University, Australia, had to send his regrets just before the conference, so we missed out on his keynote presentation. World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) Anti Doping Danmark. Intet land har dog gjort sport til noget politisk, som det tidligere Østtyskland (DDR) gjorde.

Når sport bliver politik Den daværende statschef Walter Ulbricht udtalte i 1968: ”Hos os er intet upolitisk. Alt, hvad vi beskæftiger os med – både arbejde og sport – er politisk.” For at gøre landet og dets styreform kendt og anerkendt i hele verden, og for at give østtyskerne nationale idoler at se op til, brugte den østtyske stat enorme summer på idrætten. Gennem et stort net af talentspejdere fandt man de største talenter i alle sportsgrene i en meget tidlig alder og satte dem i særlige idrætsskoler. Her trænede man dem med de mest avancerede træningsmetoder og træningsteknikker på videnskabeligt grundlag. Systematisk doping Efter murens fald i 1989 blev det bevist, at resultaterne blev hjulpet på vej af et kæmpestort systematisk forbrug af doping. Former Abusers of Anabolic Androgenic Steroids Exhibit Decreased Testosterone Levels and Hypogonadal Symptoms Years after Cessation: A Case-Control Study.

Abstract Aims Abuse of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) is highly prevalent among male recreational athletes.

Former Abusers of Anabolic Androgenic Steroids Exhibit Decreased Testosterone Levels and Hypogonadal Symptoms Years after Cessation: A Case-Control Study

The objective of this study was to investigate the impact of AAS abuse on reproductive hormone levels and symptoms suggestive of hypogonadism in current and former AAS abusers. Methods This study had a cross-sectional case-control design and involved 37 current AAS abusers, 33 former AAS abusers (mean (95%CI) elapsed duration since AAS cessation: 2.5 (1.7; 3.7) years) and 30 healthy control participants. Results Former AAS abusers exhibited significantly lower median (25th –75th percentiles) total and free testosterone levels than control participants (total testosterone: 14.4 (11.9–17.7) nmol/l vs. 18.8 (16.6–22.0) nmol/l) (P < 0.01). Conclusions Former AAS abusers exhibited significantly lower plasma testosterone levels and higher frequencies of symptoms suggestive of hypogonadism than healthy control participants years after AAS cessation.

Studie viser langvarige risici ved brug af anabole steroider - Idan

Anti Doping Dannmark efterlyser nu behandlingstilbud til dopingmisbrugere. Brug af anabole steroider er den mest udbredte form for doping i motions- og fitnessmiljøer. Men langtidseffekterne ved brugen af de forbudte stoffer er langt fra kendte i alle detaljer. Nu viser et nyt studie fra Herlev Hospital, at misbrug af anabole androgene steroider virker hæmmende på unge mænds produktion af testosteron. Det gælder også flere år efter, at de er stoppet med at tage anabole steroider.

I Anti Doping Danmark, som har støttet studiet, ser man de nye resultater som endnu et argument for at sætte ind med en forebyggende indsats, men også at etablere egentlige behandlingstilbud for dopingmisbrugere. Studiet viser desuden, at der er fare for, at mændene ikke får det samme niveau af testosteron igen efter et misbrug. Læs mere.
