They just say Sherk has high levels of Nandrolone which is a naturally occurring steroid. I don't know enough about Nandrolone to know if a person could natrually have as high a level as Sherk did.


I wonder what this will mean for the light weight title.

from what i've read, "normal" levels of Nandrolone are between 2ml and 6ml, his test came back at 12ml or something like that. But form my understanding natty levels increase when your very active, so it could be because of his training routine. Not really sure though.

Your right. I also just found this on another site.

Urine analysis as a method of detecting nandrolone abuse has recently become somewhat controversial, following studies by the University of Aberdeen showing that the metabolite product can also show up in urine in quantities above the upper limit from a combination of high-protein diets utilizing the legal nutritional supplement creatine and hard cardiovascular exercise. The reason for this unexpected result has not been determined. Another possible (though unlikely) reason for a false positive result is the consumption of beef from cattle treated with steroids including nandrolone (used in overturning the verdict against the bobsleigh racer, Lenny Paul). Heavy consumption of the essential amino acid lysine (as indicated in the treatment of cold sores) has also shown false positives in some and was cited by American Shotputter C.J. Hunter as the reason for his positive test.
Another interesting fact, Royce Gracie tested positive for Nandrolone but his levels were 50 where as Sherk's was 12. I think if Sherk was going to cheat his levels would be somewhere around Gracie's or higher. Yet again I don't know much about the stuff. Still doing research.

I would think Sherk just has naturally high levels from his intense training, but with everyone using lately who knows.

Well, I'm just glad they did that segment with his training regieme on there.. No doubt that would be a likely culprit!
