Testosterone therapy doesn`t increase heart attack risk
Washington: A new study has found that testosterone therapy does not increase men's risk for heart attack.
Jacques Baillargeon, lead author of the study said that their investigation was motivated by a growing concern, in the U.S. and internationally, that testosterone therapy increases men's risk for cardiovascular disease, specifically heart attack and stroke and added that there is a large body of evidence that is consistent with the findings of no increased risk of heart attack associated with testosterone use.
This University of Texas Medical Branch study of more than 25,000 older men shows that testosterone therapy was not associated with an increased risk of heart attack, whereas the testosterone users with a higher probability of cardiovascular problems had a lower rate of heart attacks in comparison to equivalent patients who did not receive testosterone therapy.
This study was published in the Annals of Pharmacotherapy.
