Bonds was reportedly using multiple drugs: two designer steroids referred to as the Cream and the Clear, insulin, human growth hormone, testosterone and trenbolone.

People at the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (BALCO), a sports nutrition center, were tracking Bonds's complicated doping regimen with calendars and folders.
