Testosterone Therapy Injuries
Many males who used AndroGel or other testosterone therapies have suffered from heart attacks, strokes or other serious medical conditions. Studies show that AndroGel and other “low-T” treatments, which are available as testosterone gels, patches, pellets and injections, have recently been linked to an increased risk of heart and cardiovascular problems in older and middle-aged men with a history of heart disease.
Common health risks due to testosterone therapy are:
Testosterone is the primary male hormone that is responsible for the onset of puberty and the anatomical and physiological changes that occur during puberty. The body manufacturers testosterone and the production peaks in the late teens or early 20’s. As men get older, the production drops significantly. If it drops too low, it can cause a decreased sex drive, diminished ability to perform sexually and other side effects. For men of all ages who have low testosterone, doctors often prescribe testosterone. While there can be health benefits to testosterone therapy, there are also health risks.
