It is true; anabolics of the oral type can be taxing on the liver yet at the same time the extent is quite often heavily exaggerated. While liver values will rise with the use of most steroid pills, in most cases they will return to normal levels soon after you discontinue use; we are assuming you are not taking massive doses for very long extended periods of time. The liver as you understand is a very important organ in the body and one must ensure they keep it in proper working function; if we use our oral steroids responsibly we can enjoy their benefits and keep our liver healthy. A little side-note for the regular drinkers; regular alcohol consumption is far more toxic to the liver than responsible oral steroid use. If anything that should give you some food for though.
