Testosterone Treatment or Low-T Injury Attorneys
Testosterone treatment has been heavily marketed to consumers in recent years. Although originally developed to treat an actual medical condition known as hypogonadism, catchy names like Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) and Low T treatment have been saturating the media to suggest a medical necessity for men to replace the testosterone they have lost as a natural result of the aging process. Even in younger males with normal levels of testosterone, it is implied that testosterone treatment may be beneficial, leading to increased strength and enhanced sexual ability.
Recent studies, however, have pointed out the very real risks and dangers that may accompany testosterone treatment, including stroke, heart attack and death. If you have suffered adverse side effects from the use of testosterone, contract the attorneys at Henry Spiegel Milling today. We take on irresponsible drug makers who put profits ahead of people, and market dangerous drugs and reckless therapies that do more harm than good.
Multiple Studies Have Linked Adverse Effects to Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Important recent studies have raised concerns about the link between the use of testosterone and an increased incidence of cardiac events, ranging from arrhythmia and atrial fibrillation to myocardial infarction, heart attack, stroke and death. In addition to studies published in notable publications including the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and the New England Journal of Medicine, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a Safety Announcement and required a boxed warning to be placed on certain testosterone treatments. If you are taking or considering taking testosterone treatment, make sure you are receiving advice from a qualified health care professional whom you trust. Do not hesitate to ask questions and raise concerns with your doctor before starting or continuing testosterone treatment.
Testosterone treatments are marketed under many different names and come in many different forms, including patches, gels, injections, liquids, and implants. If you have taken any of the following and experienced a cardiovascular event, please contact our office:
