Severe Health Risks
Testosterone therapy treatments have become a popular with men in the past decade as they have been advertised to improve low sex drives, reclaim diminished energy and as a body-building supplement.

- Heart attack
- Blood clots
- Pulmonary embolisms

The Public Library of Science’s online journal, PLoS One, published a study conducted by a research team that included members from the U.S. National Cancer Institute, the University of California and Consolidated Research that found a correlation between men who took testosterone drugs and an increased risk of heart attack.
The study revealed that risks for heart attack doubled in the first 90 days in men older than 65, as well as men younger than 65 who had a history of heart disease.
Another study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that older men had a 29 percent increase is heart attack, stroke and death while taking testosterone medications.

In June 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a partial label change to testosterone drugs to warn about the risks of blood clots.
Less than a year later, the FDA issued a safety announcement warning consumers that the drugs have a chance of increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke. It also aimed to clarify that these medications should not be used to treat low testosterone levels caused by aging, despite misleading advertisements from manufacturers claiming these drugs can be used for that purpose.
