'I'll keep taking steroids despite risk to kidneys'

A man has told BBC Radio 5 Live that he’s willing to continue taking anabolic steroids, despite test results showing he’s at risk from kidney failure.

Stewart visited the UK's first doctor-led clinic for anabolic steroid use, in Newport, south Wales.

Anabolic steroids are Class C drugs. It’s illegal to buy or sell them, but not possess or use them.

Concerns are growing about the adverse side-effects, leading doctors to set up the clinic, to which 5 Live has been given exclusive access.
