    Yes. But they MUST moniter their blood suger levels. AAS use will require insulin dosage adjustments. It's best for the person to tell their doc what they are planning to do.

    Agreed..Diabetics can use AAS but:
    A Blood Glucose monitor should be utilised as anabolic steroids increase/potentiate the hypoglycemic effects of Insulin AND oral hypoglycaemic agents.

    If any of you remember Tim Belknap, he was a diabetic bodybuilder and obviously used AAS...Guess, I'm showing my age....

    Yes, you can definitely be a diabetic and use AAS, but like everyone else said you will have to monitor your blood glucose very carefullly (and your blood results in general)....

    Just my opinion, but if you do have diabetes, I'd put off the cycle on Monday and deal with your health issues first....Your roids will keep and you can start them at a later date....Diabetes is obviously serious, both physically and mentally, so deal with that without complicating your body's hormone levels with AAS....again, just my opionion.....Good luck -- hope your doctor visit goes well..
