Washington: Older men with higher testosterone levels are more likely to have a heart attack or other cardiovascular disease, says a study."The study finding contradicts smaller studies that have shown that testosterone levels are not associated with higher rates of cardiovascular disease," said Kristen Sueoka, physician at the University of California, San Francisco.
After the researchers adjusted for other potential contributing risk factors for heart disease, such as elevated cholesterol, they found that higher total testosterone level relates to an increased risk of coronary disease, said a university release.The results were presented at The Endocrine Society`s 92nd Annual Meeting in San Diego.IANS
