Recent studies have suggested that Low T products such as AndroGel are linked with a increased risk of Heart Attack and Strokes. The Journal of the American Medical Association or JAMA released a study in late 2013 that found data linking Low T to an increased risk of Heart Attack. The title of the JAMA study on Low T and Heart Attack and Stroke was: Association of Testosterone Therapy With Mortality, Myocardial Infarction, and Stroke in Men With Low Testosterone Levels. The conclusion of the JAMA study read in part
"Among a cohort of men in the VA health care system who underwent coronary angiography and had a low serum testosterone level, the use of testosterone therapy was associated with increased risk of adverse outcomes. These findings may inform the discussion about the potential risks of testosterone therapy."
These dangerous Testosterone side effects prompted another study that was released in early 2014. This study was published in PLOS One and found that men over 65 who are under Low T Testosterone treatments are at double the risk to suffer a heart attack. The title of that study was: Increased Risk of Non-Fatal Myocardial Infarction Following Testosterone Therapy Prescription in Men. This exhaustive study's conclusion read in part:
"Among men aged 65 years and older, we observed a two-fold increase in the risk of MI in the 90 days after filling an initial TT prescription, the risk declined to baseline in the 91 to 180 days after initial TT prescription, among those who did not refill their prescription."
There is also a potiential new study that will come out in March 2014 that could possibly again tie Testosterone Therapy products to increase risk of heart attacks and strokes. These studies have prompted the FDA to annouce they are investigating Low Products to confirm it does increase the risk of Heart Attack and Strokes. There is no timeline currently on the FDA Review of Testosterone or Low T. Brent Coon and Associates is closing monitoring the FDA's review of Low T and any potiential Testosterone Litigation.
