Injuries and Complications from Low Testosterone Treatments

Pharmaceutical companies have been heavily marketing low testosterone treatments as a way for men to become more virile and to combat low sex drive, fatigue, low bone density, weight gain and even depression.  Low testosterone or “low t” advertisements often show depictions of men that become more active and even happier after taking take low t treatments.  Recently there have been studies that have shown the potential dangers of taking low testosterone treatments.

The Journal of the American Medical Association released a study indicating an association between testosterone replacement therapy and complications such as heart attack, stroke and even death.  The Journal reported findings by the Veterans Affairs system that showed serious risks from taking medications to treat low testosterone.  Additional health risks from low testosterone medications include enlarged prostate, blood clots, liver disease and high cholesterol.  Prescribed treatments for low testosterone are taken orally, through injection or in a form that is applied to the skin and absorbed.

Anyone that is taking medication for low testosterone or thinking about taking treatments for low t should consult with their physician to discuss the risks and side-effects associated with taking medications for low testosterone.

The study referenced in this blog was released by the Journal of the American Medical Association entitled Association of Testosterone Therapy With Mortality, Myocardial Infarction, and Stroke in Men With Low Testosterone and was released on November 6, 2013.
