    Can steroids be produced by our body?




    Has it something to paraneoplastic syndrome?

    Yes.
    Human steroid hormones (e.g. aldosterone, cortisol, ...) are an example.
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    I think we don't understand each other. I watched Dr House, where steroids made by human body were sth strange. Doctors thought about paraneoplastic syndrome then.

    Check out the wiki entry. Paraneoplastic syndrome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hours of absorbing reading for anyone who chooses to follow those links.

    Paraneoplastic syndrome is very broad and can manifest in a bunch of things.

    Which makes it useful for writing a script around.

    As for steroids, yes your body produces them.
