A 2013 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has linked prescription testosterone boosters to severe side effects, including heart attacks.
The JAMA study reported that men who use testosterone therapy drugs were 30% more likely to have a testosterone heart attack or stroke during a three-year period than men who have low testosterone and didn’t take Low-T boosters.
According to the American Heart Association, heart attacks occur when the blood flow that brings oxygen to the heart muscle is severely reduced or cut off completely.
Testosterone treatment therapies include:
- Bio-T Gel
In January 2014, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it will be reviewing the safety of testosterone booster drugs after a federally funded study of 45,000 men suggested testosterone therapy could double the risk of heart attacks in men 65 and older.
