Re: Are muscle enhancing PED cheating?
TRT prescriptions written by physician is controversial because it has the appearance of being a sham industry promoting unnecessary drugs to otherwise healthy males. There is a legit market for TRT but you can make the argument that a large % of guys taking it are simply using it as an end around to get legal testosterone. And one component of their market is former steroid users whose body has shut down making testosterone which requires them to continue taking exogenous testosterone. Although they may have a legit medical need for it, the basis of their need is due to lifelong steroid use. Look at some of the guys in MMA that had therapeutic exemptions for TRT for the same reason. UFC eventually shot that down because they felt it was rewarding former steroid abusers.
