Low T Therapy Carries An Increased Risk of Heart Attacks

by Staff Blogger | May 27th, 2014

As some men begin to age, they may feel as though they are losing not only energy and drive, but also muscle mass. Many of these individuals are turning to Testosterone therapy as the solution to their woes, but experts are now saying doing so may be putting them at a significant risk of harm.

Recent studies have shown Testosterone therapy heart attack risks are a very real concern for those who are taking the hormone. In fact, one study showed the risk of the adverse health event doubled in patients within the first three months of beginning the therapy.

Forbes reports that in the examination of more than 55,000 men who were using Testosterone therapy, a majority of men over the age of 65-years-old with a history of heart disease were discovered to be at a significantly increased risk of suffering a heart attack while undergoing Testosterone therapy.

These findings have sparked a controversy regarding the safety of the therapy and have prompted calls for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to consider updating warning labels on such products to address these risks.

In the meantime, though, many of the victims of Testosterone therapy are questioning what action they can take to cover the costs associated with injuries the therapy and their heart attacks may have caused.
