Testosterone Heart Injury

Clark, Perdue & List is investigating claims for personal injury and wrongful death in connection with use of testosterone supplements.

According to a recent study, testosterone products double the risk of heart attacks in some men.

Over the last 10 years, the number of prescriptions for testosterone products for men in the United States has increased dramatically. Due in large part to aggressive marketing, nearly 3 percent of American men over 40 years of age are using testosterone products. In 2011, more than 5.3 million prescriptions were written for American men, creating a $1.6 billion industry in the United States alone. Testosterone products come in pill, gel or cream form. Many of the supplements have not been subject to scientific studies or pre-clinical trials

Link between use of testosterone supplements and cardiovascular events

The link between use of testosterone supplements and cardiovascular events was first noted in 2009 in a government funded study to establish increased strength and muscle growth in men using testosterone supplements. That study was halted due to the number of heart attacks and strokes. In November 2013, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study that followed nearly 9,000 men who had used various testosterone supplements for a period of three years. Researchers in that study found that the men who used testosterone supplements had nearly a 30 percent increased risk of stroke, heart attack and death. On January 31, 2014, a report published in PLOS One indicates that testosterone therapy doubles the risk of cardiovascular events in men over the age of 65. In men who have a history of heart disease, the risk is tripled. The PLOS One study followed 56,000 men of various ages.

Testosterone Supplement Side Effects

According to USA Today, a Mayo Clinic doctor stated that the side effects from using testosterone products was “equivalent to smoking one or two packs of cigarettes a day, or having sky-high cholesterol.”

Testosterone products include AndroGel, Androderm, Testopel, Depo-Testosterone, Bio-T-Gel, Axirom, Delaterstryl, Striant, Testim and Fortesta.
