Do anabolic steroids help improve recovery from hip fractures in the elderly? Evidence-based answer: The anabolic steroid, nandrolone, alone or in combination with a protein supplement, improves speed of gait and quality of life and preserves lean body mass. However, nandrolone has no effect on pain, independence in activities of daily living (ADLs), or the combined outcome of mortality and need for higher level of care on discharge (SOR: B, small RCTs).
