Testosterone Treatments Linked to Heart Attacks, Clots, and Strokes

Men who take testosterone drugs are at increased risk of suffering a heart attack, stroke, or blood clots. Recent research has shown that men with heart problems who take low testosterone (“Low T") treatments are 30 percent more likely to suffer a stroke, heart attack, or death compared to healthy men who do not take the supplements.

Selling low testosterone is big business. Aggressive marketing has sent millions of men to their doctors demanding treatment for their mood swings, lack of vigor, or decreased sex drive. The number of men aged 40 and older treated for Low T jumped more than 300 percent from 2001 to 2011, and prescription sales for testosterone reached $1.6 billion in 2011.

Low T therapy is often given as a gel, patch, or injection and may include the following products:

  • AndroGel
  • Androderm
  • Axiron
  • Bio-T-Gel
  • Fortesta
  • Striant
  • Testim

If you or a loved one has suffered a heart attack, stroke, or blood clots while using Low T drugs, Diamond~Massong may be able to help.

“I had a medical negligence case where my bile duct was completely cut during gall bladder surgery. I have had several surgeries for corrections since then. Judy Massong was recommended to me by a friend, and it felt right to have an attorney with a medical background. I adore Judy; she is compassionate and caring and communicates well. I feel comfortable that she is a female, and I am so pleased with how she handled my case. She truly believes in what she’s doing, and she’s a great advocate for the victim.” Melody P.
