Heart Risks Connected to Testosterone Treatments

Recommended by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Considering supplements to combat low testosterone? You may want a second opinion.

A new study has found that testosterone supplements, designed at boosting testosterone or T levels in men, can cause complications with sex drive, mood, energy, and whats worse: it may increase your chance of heart problems and even death.

Researchers found a link betweentestosterone drugs and heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular events during the first three months of therapy, with the incidence of heart disease nearly doubling in not only patients younger than 65 (with a history of heart disease) but also in patients over 65 (without a history of heart disease).

Although this is no new phenomenon, it should cause some to wonder if they really need the therapy or should just live with Low T.

The study is changing the conversation about Low T and prompting the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to update their labeling on the medication. Whereas prior studies only examined a small sample size of the population, this most recent study expanded its scope, and has the potential to make testosterone therapy less desirable, especially to younger users.

Due to the size of our study, we were able to examine heart attacks, as opposed to a variety of cardiovascular conditions, and we were able to examine excess risk in the short term, says William Finkle, the lead author and an epidemiologist at Consolidated Research, a statistics and software development firm. Our study is also the first to include a substantial number of men under 65

Many recommend further studies to greater understand the benefits and risks of Low T therapy and how it can be used most effectively, while still remaining safe for patients. For now, the risk remains.
