Low T Therapy May Mean High Risk For Heart Attack & Strokes

Men using testosterone supplement therapies for "Low T" need to be aware of a potential increased risk for heart attack, strokes and blood clots due to these defective drugs. A recent study shows that men using prescription testosterone supplements have an increased risk of suffering heart attacks, strokes and blood clots. In the men studied, the risk of heart attack doubled in the 90 days after beginning use of Low T therapies. This study comes on the heels of another study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, finding a 29% increase in stroke, heart attack and death in men undergoing testosterone therapy. In 2009, the Journal of New England Medicine reported that a federally-funded research study on testosterone gels was stopped after researchers noticed that some of the participants were suffering heart attacks and other heart-related problems.

Low T supplements include Androgel, Testim, Axirom and Androderm to name just a few. Our firm is investigating litigation regarding the increased risk of heart related problems due to testosterone supplements
