The Truth Behind Low Testosterone Treatment

heart attack

Big Pharma has spent countless millions marketing testosterone replacement therapies to men who exhibit symptoms of low testosterone or “Low T.” The issue is that almost every middle-aged man has these symptoms, yet they do not have hypogonadism, which is a medical issue of insufficient testosterone production, or inability to produce sperm in the testes, or both. The amount of men that have this medical condition is not enough to justify expensive marketing tactics unless the manufacturers know they can make money off of the majority of middle-aged men, most without the condition.

SYMPTOMS OF LOW T:
• Erectile Dysfunction
• Reduced Sex Drive
• Decreased Energy
• Loss of Body Hair, Reduced Shaving
• Depressed Mood
• Increase in Body Fat
• Decrease in Bone Strength
• Reduced Muscle Mass

Medical and scientific research has recently shown a link between Low T therapy and heart attack. In November 2013, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported a 30% rise in risk for stroke, heart attack, and death in men age 60 and older who had been prescribed testosterone replacement therapy, compared to those who were not prescribed low t therapy.

In January 2014, the FDA published a safety announcement announcing they were investigating the risk of stroke, heart attack, and death in men taking FDA-approved testosterone products.
