Frequently Asked Questions about Testosterone


 Testosterone Drug Lawsuits

A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announcement about a recent investigation of testosterone products men use to treat low testosterone levels has provoked a new wave of mass litigation. Currently, the FDA is  monitoring the correlation between low testosterone therapy treatments and heart problems.

In response to the FDA’s announcement, the Long Island law firm, Rudolph F. X. Migliore, P. C., is now reviewing cases pertaining to men who have been treated for low testosterone and are suffering from heart issues.

What is testosterone and testosterone replacement therapy?

Testosterone is a hormone that is absolutely essential to the development of the male body and is important to functions such as growth and masculine characteristics. Testosterone replacement therapy is a medical treatment used when males naturally begin to produce abnormally low levels of testosterone.

What products fall under low testosterone therapy treatments?

  • AndroGel
  • AndroDerm
  • Axiron
  • Bio-T Gel
  • Delatestryl
  • Depo-Testosterone
  • Foresta
  • Striant
  • Testim
  • Testopel

Why is testosterone replacement therapy dangerous?

A study was released by the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that men undergoing testosterone replacement therapy have increased risk to developing heart problems. Some cardiovascular risks involved with the testosterone replacement therapy include stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, and death.

Who is at high risk?

The corresponding research involved with low testosterone therapy and heart problems have shown that some groups of men may be at a higher risk than other groups of men. Men who have prior existing heart health issues have an increased risk to developing heart issues when taking low testosterone therapy products. In addition, men over the age of 65 are found to be nearly double the risk of suffering from a serious heart issue such as stroke, heart attack or death.

Are there any alternatives to testosterone replacement therapy treatments?

There are many factors that can disrupt the natural acts of the human body and cause a hormonal imbalance or lead to low testosterone levels. Low testosterone levels have been linked to many natural everyday activities and can be prevented just by adjusting some daily events. Since hormones are more active during sleep, men can boost testosterone levels by getting more rest at night, by avoiding over working during the day and by adding exercise into the daily agenda.
