Low T Therapies and Heart Attacks

by Staff Blogger | July 18th, 2017

If you’ve watched late-night TV recently, you’ve probably seen a number of commercials boasting proven therapies for Low T, a medical condition that can affect the sex drive, energy levels, and bone strength in men. A number of therapies are marketed to men with Low T, including Androgel, Axiron, patches, injections, gels, and pills. Unfortunately, some of these treatments have been linked to serious health risks and complications.

A recent study revealed that men with a history of heart disease were at an increased risk of heart attacks while undergoing testosterone therapy. In fact, men under 65 who have a family history of heart disease were twice as likely to suffer a heart attack, while all men over 65, regardless of medical history, are at the same degree of risk while taking Low T treatments. In addition, men who use AndroGel may be at an increased risk for deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, stroke, or even death.

If you or someone you love suffered a heart attack after undergoing any type of testosterone treatment, you may be entitled to compensation from the drug manufacturer. Call the drug injury lawyers at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough today for a free evaluation of your claim.
