Also Known As

PED Test

The Purpose of a PED Drug Test

Fair play is a foundational tenet of all sporting events, and the use of steroids, hormones, or other drugs upends the level playing field. A performance-enhancement drug blood test helps detect the presence of substances that give athletes an unfair advantage by boosting stamina, endurance, or power. These substances can be harmful to an athlete’s health, and their use is prohibited in competitive sports. The test can determine if banned drugs are in an athlete’s system, making it a crucial tool in maintaining the integrity of sports and safeguarding athletes’ health.

What Does the PED Profile Test Measure?

This drug test for PED measures some of the most common banned substances, including:

  • Anabolic steroids
  • Androstenedione
  • Creatinine
  • Diuretics
  • Erythropoietin
  • Human growth hormone
  • Stimulants

Who Should Take a PED Test?

Athletes are typically the target audience for the PED drug test. This test may also be advisable if an athlete is experiencing side effects linked to doping, depending on the substance, including:

  • A heart rate that either feels too slow or too fast
  • Unanticipated weight loss or gain
  • Hallucinations
  • Acne
  • Weakness
  • Dehydration
  • Muscle or stomach cramps
  • Tremors or weakness
  • Joint pain
  • Cardiovascular issues such as high or low blood pressure, stroke, or heart attack

PED Profile Test Preparation

A performance-enhancement drug blood test requires a 12-hour fast before the sample is taken.

Random growth hormone testing should be performed on fasting patients who have rested for at least 30 minutes prior to the blood draw.

PED Test Results

A positive drug test for PED means the presence of one or more banned substances has been detected in the sample. This may disqualify an athlete from competition. If an athlete is suffering side effects from performance-enhancing drugs, they can seek medical advice from a Personalabs doctor during a telehealth appointment.
