    Man fined over importing steroid

    A 38-year-old man has been ordered to pay more than $4,000 in fines and court costs for failing to tell the Australian Customs Services he was carrying the steroids DHEA.

    Graham Maifredi, from Euramo in far north Queensland, was convicted in the Cairns Magistrates Court on Monday of making a false statement to Customs officers and importing a prohibited substance.

    He was stopped by officers at the Cairns International Airport late last year and found to be carrying 60 capsules of DHEA, or Dehydroepiandrosterone.

    Customs director regional Queensland Andrew Hosking said that while DHEA was legal in some countries, its importation into Australia was restricted and required prior approval from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

    "This week's penalty should also serve as a warning to those considering buying such substances over the internet," he said.

    "If in doubt, it pays to check with Customs first."

    Okay, so DHEA is so "anabolic" that Australians need to ask the big headed TGA for permission to buy a bottle of it? I wonder if Creatine is a prohibited substance also?? After all, it's much more "anabolic" than DHEA.

    Good luck with that. Many old folks love to use dhea, and their votes make up a large chunk of the voting bloc. I don't think it's going anywhere, but that's just my $0.02.

    Australia is very strict on importing supplements and many things are on the banned there.

    DHEA needs to undergo two conversions before it reaches its identity as testosterone, and it becomes other hormones as well. it is called "the mother of all hormones" for a reason.

    DHEA for purposes of bodybuilding can only really be attributed to post cycle therapy. if anyone were to try and use it as a muscle-building pro hormone they would not have too much success. they would have to absolutely mega dose the stuff for months.

    the elderly with waning test levels and steroid users coming off exogenous hormones are the people that see the most out of DHEA use. it should not be classified as a steroid.

    It is a steroid.

    Whether or not it should be an illegal steroid is another matter.

    But it is a steroid.
