Answers to FAQ:
7-oxo-DHEA (also known as 7-keto-DHEA), 7alpha-hydroxy-DHEA (7alpha-OH-DHEA), and 7beta-hydroxy-DHEA (7beta- OH-DHEA) – DHEA metabolites that do not convert to androgens or estrogens or interact with sex steroid receptors – are NOT banned substances.
Natural diuretics (ex. Dandelion root) legally sold over-the-counter are NOT banned.
Athletes, like all others, may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications. If the medication an athlete is required to take to treat an illness or condition happens to fall under the prohibited list, a therapeutic use exemption may give that athlete the authorization to take the needed medicine. Criteria for granting a therapeutic use exemption are 1.) The athlete would experience significant health problems without taking the prohibited substance or method, 2.) The therapeutic use of the substance would not produce significant enhancement of performance, and 3.)There is no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the use of the otherwise prohibited substance or method.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), e.g. supplementing with prescribed testosterone in any form to raise testosterone levels due to natural decreases that occur with aging (even if to just elevate levels to within ‘normal’ ranges), is NOT considered a medicinal exception. Persons using TRT would not be eligible for competition.
