No Link Between Steroid Use and Diverticulitis

↵

Now, to answer your question, I could find absolutely no credible, peer-reviewed medical literature that drew a correlation between anabolic-steroid use and diverticulitis.

Therefore, the Internet pundits and unlicensed medical experts who continue to state, imply and/or insinuate that Brock Lesnar's serious GI condition is related to past or ongoing anabolic steroid use are both reckless and stating unsubstantiated information as fact.

- Dr. Johnny Benjamin puts to rest the supposed connection between steroid use and diverticulitis.

The connection came up with Brock Lesnar's diverticulitis battle as people looked to tie the disease into steroid use.  It remains entirely likely that were Lesnar to break his arm in a car accident that a correlation would be found between arm breaks, car accidents, and performance enhancing drugs.
