The Hormone & Its Function

testosterone1Testosterone is a male hormone that is prescribed by medical professionals to resolve specific physical problems, such as diminished sex drive and bone mass.
database1According to Medical News Today, it has also been used to treat conditions such as changes in mood, reduced cognitive abilities, fatigue, depression and anger, skin alterations, and increases in abdominal fat mass. The same source notes that prescriptions for testosterone increased by over 170 percent in a five-year period.

An article published by Harvard Medical School revealed that millions of men in the USA have been prescribed a testosterone gel or injection. An advertising campaign promoting the use of the hormone and its benefits has led many men to “ask your doctor” and request a prescription to treat “low T.” Many of these men have developed serious health conditions that are now associated with the use of the testosterone.

TRT Side Effects

Recent research has revealed that testosterone treatments may have dangerous side effects that could negatively affect health. The FDA reports that testosterone is approved strictly for men who have low testosterone levels in conjunction with some other associated condition. However, the New York Times reports that a large recent study found an increased risk of heart attacks in older men with a history of heart disease.

testosterone3Another fact reported in the New York Times states that about one-quarter of the men on testosterone treatments were never tested for their actual levels of testosterone. Your doctor may have prescribed you testosterone outside the FDA rules, and if so, could be held liable if you suffered from a heart attack or stroke after taking the drug.

Labeling changes were ordered by the FDA in a Safety Announcement issued on January 2014, for all testosterone products on the market due to the following potential increased health risks:

Injuries from Testosterone Therapy

Increased Risk of Heart Attack

A once healthy man can face very significant injuries, including damaged organs, blood clots, decreased blood flow, heart failure, vision loss, erectile dysfunction, and many other serious health problems associated with reduced blood flow, including the possibility of death.

Increased Risk of Stroke

testosterone6Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and leading cause of adult disability in the U.S., according to the American Stroke Association. A stroke takes place when an artery or blood vessel has become blocked or bursts, and the brain does not get the oxygen it needs. The consequences of a stroke can be very significant, affecting motor skills, speech, control of facial muscles, or death. Testosterone has been linked with an increased risk of stroke in some patients.

Your Legal Options

If you were prescribed a testosterone gel, injection, or pill, and later suffered a heart attack or stroke, it could be associated with the medication.
