Recent Studies Show Increased Risk for Heart Disease After Testosterone Therapy
According to a study conducted by the National Institute of Health (published Jan. 2014), there is a clear link between heart attacks and testosterone therapy. Researchers evaluated the health records of over 50,000 men who had taken testosterone treatments between 2008 and 2010. They were able to conclude that:
Another study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Nov. 2013) found that men had a 30% increase risk of heart attack, stroke, or even death after taking testosterone therapy.
Many men are reporting serious side effects and injuries as a direct result of taking testosterone therapy drugs. Some of the most common injuries include:
After the above two studies were published, the FDA took action and announced that it was investigating low testosterone therapy and its’ relation to the increased risk for heart attacks, stroke, chest pains, and other cardiovascular injuries.
The FDA immediately issued a safety alert and stated they would be reevaluating the safety of low testosterone products due to the sudden increase in cardiovascular side effects among men taking these products.
The FDA has only approved testosterone therapy for men that have been clinically diagnosed with a low testosterone condition, called hypogonadism. However, the National Institute of Health study found that only one-quarter of the men in the study actually had a medical condition to justify a prescription for testosterone therapy. If you were given a testosterone prescription for one of these products but were not diagnosed with hypogonadism, you may have a claim for compensation.
