A recent study published in PLOS|one, outlined the recent data about possible problems revolving around low testosterone or Low T therapy. The study indicated that “An association between testosterone therapy (TT) and cardiovascular disease has been reported and TT use is increasing rapidly.”
The potential problems may foreshadow the filing of a low testosterone lawsuit by men affected by low testosterone therapy.
The study went on to say that ” Given the rapidly increasing use of TT, the current results, along with other recent findings emphasize the urgency of the previous call for clinical trials adequately powered to assess the range of benefits and risks suggested for such therapy. Until that time clinicians might be well advised to include serious cardiovascular events in their discussions with patients of potential risks, particularly for men with existing cardiovascular disease.”
This study is not unlike the other study published on NIH in late 2013.
This recent study and the others show a heightened sense of urgency for men on low testosterone “low T” therapy and that there may be a chance that they might suffer from a cardiovascular event such as a stroke or heart attack.
Some of the potential problems that may be associated with testosterone (Low T) therapy and may be factors in a low testosterone lawsuit include:
- Stroke, which occurs when a blood clot reaches the brain and restricts oxygen supply
- Blood Clot in the Deep Veins (Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT)
- Pulmonary embolism, which happens when a blood clot lodges in the lungs
- Myocardial infarction (Heart Attack), commonly known as a heart attack – a sudden loss of blood flow in the heart
- Arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat
- Transient ischemic attacks, or “mini-strokes,” as they are commonly called
