Testosterone Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) Lawsuits

0 Comment

In a recently published research in the Journal of the American Medical Association, men above 30 years of age with prolonged use of testosterone supplements are more likely to suffer from Myocardial Infarction (heart attack).  The study was conducted on 8700 men in a 3 years span and testosterone supplement takers where at a 30% higher risk of suffering from attacks.

Why Men use Testosterone Supplements

The bigger issue seems to be the fact that these testosterone supplements are aggressively marketed as drugs that can transfer a normal aging male to an alpha male.   While such claims are largely untrue, most advertisers do not show the potential health risks of the product.  Moreover, there have been no trials to prove that these supplements are safe over the long term.

Ideally these supplements were created for men with low testosterone level. The purpose was to normalize the libido, strengthen bone density and improve energy levels.  However, the drugs are being prescribed to many men who do not even need them.
