Nope. The mainstream media portrayal of cholesterol’s health effects is about as accurate as the claim of most Olympians that they’re natural. The media will have you believe all that cholesterol you consume ends up clogging your arteries, but the reality is, for most people how much cholesterol you consume in your diet does not even influence how much cholesterol is in your blood . Cholesterol is so important for the body that it is highly regulated. If your diet does not contain much cholesterol, your intestines will increase their absorption to compensate. If that’s not enough, your body will produce its own cholesterol.
Though you may already be aware of potential side effects from testosterone abuse (note I said abuse and not use), here they are again: lowered HDL-cholesterol levels (good cholesterol), testicular atrophy, reductions in sperm count, prostate enlargement, liver damage (primarily with oral steroids that have been modified with a 17-alkyl substitution), menstrual irregularities, suppression of endogenous hormone levels (like LH and T), development of palpable breast tissue in men (also known as gynecomastia), clitoral enlargement, and acne.
