When Is Testosterone Therapy? When Is Not Good?
Majid Ali, M.D.
I cite two studies to make my main point. I leave the rest o your imagination.
In 2009, the National Institutes of Health halted its trial of testosterone therapy for about 200 frail older men with a high prevalence of heart disease due to a high rate of heart attacks among those taking testosterone. (Why would anyone consider such a study?)
A study of 1,031 Veterans Health Administration patients last in 2013, by contrast, found that testosterone therapy lowered the risk of heart disease and cut the mortality risk by 39%.
