Testosterone Supplement Heart Attacks
Recent investigations have proven the serious dangers of testosterone therapies, including AndroGel and various "low-T" treatments. These medications have been shown to cause a serious risk of cardiac problems and heart attack and come in the form of injections, patches, gels, and pellets. However, drug manufacturers failed to warn patients about the severe risk of stroke and heart attack associated with testosterone treatments.

What Are the Dangers of Low-T Treatments?
A study conducted by Veterans Affairs (VA) found that the primary target for testosterone treatments – older men with low hormone issues – were 30 percent likelier to suffer serious or fatal heart attacks and strokes due to their treatments. In addition, the study found that testosterone treatments created serious cardiac risks in all patients, whether or not they had any preexisting cardiac issues. This is not the first finding to point to the risk of low-T medication; there have been multiple studies in recent years that highlighted the potential dangers. Some studies have shown that men older than age 65 with a history of heart disease have twice the rate of heart attacks after taking testosterone therapy.
Low-T treatments have already been found to cause many side effects, including enlarged prostate, increased prostate cancer risks, high blood pressure, blood clots, skin irritation, increased cholesterol, and sexual dysfunction. It has also been shown to be highly dangerous for children and pregnant women. However, while these dangers are detailed on the label, heart attack and stroke have continued to go without a warning.
These serious dangers have led to health groups calling for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to add a "black box" warning to all testosterone treatments, signifying its potentially deadly dangers.
