New concerns have been raised recently about the health risks of the use of Testosterone drugs in men. Recent medical studies have shown that testosterone therapy can result in dangerous blood clots. For men over 65 years of age, the risk of heart attack doubles when using Testosterone. If a man has pre-existing heart disease, the risks of such use are even greater. The Food and Drug Adminstration is now launching an investigation into the risks of this therapy. This testosterone therapy is done by products called: Androgel, Androderm, Axiron, Bio-T-Gel, Depo-Testosterone, Fortestra, Striant, Testim, and Testopel. (all names are registered trademarks of their respective owners).
A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, November 2013, followed over 80,000 men and found that there was a 29% higher rate of heart attack, stroke and death if the patient was on Testosterone therapy. Other studies have shown that testosterone therapy may be overused on men who do not meet published treatment guidelines.
