Testosterone Drugs Can Trigger Huge Cardiovascular Issues

It’s already a known fact that hormonal therapy can turn out very dangerous for one’s health. Check out the latest reports about the testosterone therapy below.

The dangers of hormonal therapy

It has become popular to encourage men experiencing symptoms of aging, like low testosterone levels (“low T”), to undergo testosterone therapy. However, it is often overlooked whether this therapy increases the risk of heart attacks.

Regrettably, it does. As more lawsuits are filed, it is becoming evident that these testosterone treatments can result in serious injuries and complications, including heart attacks.

Despite this, millions of prescriptions for testosterone are written in the United States as it is marketed as a solution for muscle loss, decreased libido, and lowered bone density. Unfortunately, most men are unaware of the associated risks. To compound the issue, many men who undergo these treatments do not even have low testosterone levels.

Many men who undergo testosterone therapy treatments report adverse health effects, including an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and premature death.

The dangers of testosterone therapy

Recent studies have raised concerns about the risks and negative effects of testosterone therapy, prompting the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to take action.

To address potential risks, the FDA issued a safety announcement in early 2014, and committed to further investigations. Notably, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association drew attention to this issue, revealing that users of testosterone therapy had a two to three times higher chance of experiencing a heart attack within the first 90 days of treatment.

Additionally, the study found that risks were higher for men over age 65 and those under 65 with a history of heart issues.
It has been revealed by recent studies that a significant proportion of men who choose to undergo testosterone treatment may not be suffering from low testosterone levels, with up to 43% of these men having normal testosterone levels.

The marketing of these treatments, which promised to counteract natural aging effects such as muscle loss, decreased libido, and lowered bone density, has unfortunately misled these men. Previous research has also pointed out the potential risks associated with testosterone therapy, especially for those under the age of 65, such as an increased risk of heart problems.

If you are experiencing hormonal imbalances, it is important to consider various factors such as exposure to plastics, lack of physical activity, EMF pollution, poor dietary choices, and emotional stress issues. We recommend that you seek guidance from a qualified, integrative physician if you are experiencing low energy levels due to low testosterone.
