Tips on how to Avoid Low-T Treatment Heart Attack Risk
Millions of men across the United States are now taking Low-T treatments they have been prescribed to treat symptoms of low testosterone, primarily lack of libido and energy.
Unfortunately many of these men, particularly those in the higher age brackets, may be putting themselves at significantly higher risk of suffering a heart attack or other life-threatening condition in an attempt to find the fountain of youth, according to two recent medical studies by highly respected researchers.
Some of these men have wound up filing Low-T treatment lawsuits in state and federal courts across the country in which they are seeking compensation over claims that they were not adequately warned of the higher risk of heart attacks or that they were prescribed medications for a condition they did not actually suffer from.
According to researchers at UCLA and other respected medical institutions, men who use FDA-approved medications as AndroGel, Androderm, Axirom, Bio-T-Gel, Delatestry, Depo-Testosterone, Fortesta, Striant, Testim and Testopel are at the highest risk.
The most vulnerable are those who have a history of heart disease and those who are over 60 years of age, according to the researchers, who also raised questions about whether the medications are being over prescribed.
Medical experts tell men that just because they have a lowered libido and lack the energy they once had in the prime of life that doesn't mean that they suffer from low testosterone.
Although many of the Low-T treatments are marketed through very seductive advertisements, there are safer ways to boost testosterone naturally and several recommended methods were recently detailed in a Low-T article in the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper:
