There has been conflicting evidence as to whether AS increases the plasma volume or increases the concentration of the haematocrit, so encouraging the development of thrombosis. Thrombosis most commonly affects the venous side of the blood system but acute ischaemic episodes affecting the arterial system cause cerebral infarction (stroke). Severe distal lower limb occlusion (Laroche, 1990) may necessitate limb amputation if embolectomy (surgical operation to remove the thrombosis) is unsuccessful or too late to be effective.

The authors state that it is impossible to estimate the prevalence for Britain as there are no reliable data regarding the number of gyms in the UK. Lenehan et al. (1996) used a similar method to Korkia and Stimson, except that they included more types of gymnasia (n = 43), and used trusted outreach workers to administer the survey; this might explain the higher level of AS use reported. Of 58% responding, 50% of hardcore (respondents mostly using freestanding weights) users, 31% of mixed (more strength than cardiovascular equipment) users and 13% of fitness (more cardiovascular than strength equipment) users reported that they had taken AS.

It is also interesting to note the reduction in heroin users attending the service, as this might be related to the increase in the number of AS users. There is no other indication that heroin use is slowing down in this area. Anecdotally, there is a certain animosity between opiate users attending syringe-exchange services and opiate users as AS users do not see themselves as drug users in the conventional sense. They can be disparaging to these users, seeing themselves as different from the ‘smack heads’ or ‘junkies’ that use the same syringe-exchange services.
