Why do some people use steroids?
What if we could find out why some people are steroid-using?
What if there was an easy way to measure a person’s steroid use?
And what if we knew more about how steroid use was affected by the environment and other factors?
To answer these questions, researchers have now used a new technique to measure the levels of a steroid in a person.
The technique involves a specially designed test tube, which is fitted with a tiny electrode attached to the end.
The test tube is inserted into a finger.
Once the finger is in contact with the end of the electrode, a small amount of the steroid is injected into the finger.
The results of the test are recorded and analysed.
The technique is called a microsatellite test, because it uses a special electrode to measure steroid levels in the finger tissue.
The electrode is attached to a finger, and a small probe is placed in the area of the finger, so that it can be measured.
This technique has the advantage of being easy to perform, which makes it a good indicator of steroid use.
However, it is a very sensitive technique, and there are some concerns about its accuracy.
In addition, there are many different ways of measuring steroid levels, so measuring steroid use in different people is difficult.
To tackle this issue, the researchers have been using a technique called quantitative assessment.
In the current study, the team took a micro-satellite approach to steroid measurement.
They placed a small electrode on a finger and injected a small volume of steroid into the area.
The probe was then placed into the region where the finger was, to measure whether the steroid had been injected into that finger.
A comparison of steroid levels between people who had used and had not been steroid users was then performed.
The team then compared these results to data from other studies, and to the levels measured in the current experiment.
They found that the levels in people who used steroids were significantly higher than the levels that were found in people that had not used steroids.
Although the researchers are confident that their technique is sensitive enough to detect steroid use, it may not be the only tool available for measuring steroid usage.
Furthermore, there is also the question of whether steroid levels should be measured at all.
“The study suggests that we should consider using more than just microsatellites in steroid measurement,” said lead author Professor Michael Purdy.
“We should also be more interested in what is happening in the environment, and how it affects steroid levels.
It is also possible that steroid use is an environmental risk factor that increases a persons risk of developing osteoarthritis.”
“It would be interesting to see if this information can be used to predict steroid use or whether people who have used steroids would have higher levels of steroid-related disease.”
The research was supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
