Testosterone Replacement May Significantly Lower the Risk of Death From Heart Attack in Men With Low Testosterone
A new study has found that testosterone replacement therapy may prevent heart attacks in men diagnosed with low testosterone.
According to new data presented at the European Association of Urology Congress, long-term testosterone therapy significantly reduced the chances of heart attack and other “cardiovascular events” such as stroke in men with abnormally low testosterone levels.
“Testosterone can be seriously harmful if taken by men with normal levels, or who function perfectly well with reduced levels of the hormone,” Omar M. Aboumarzouk, MD, from the Hamad Medical Corp., Qatar, said in a press release. “While men need testosterone for certain psychological and biological functions, only those with low levels who display other symptoms are likely to benefit from testosterone therapy.”
The study looked at 805 men with testosterone deficiency from Germany and Qatar with a high risk for heart attack or stroke due to family history, hypertension, cholesterol levels, diabetes, or obesity.
The researchers observed a 25% reduced risk for heart attack and stroke for men younger than 55 years and a 15% reduced risk among men older than 60 years.
Furthermore, and maybe more importantly, the scientists found that testosterone therapy also reduced many of the usual risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, including obesity, glycemic control, lipid pattern, and C-reactive protein.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy and Heart Health
While there was a time when it was believed that testosterone replacement therapy in men actually increased the risk of heart attack or stroke, more recent studies like the one discussed above indicate that quite the opposite is true. There is now clear evidence that testosterone therapy improves heart health and lowers the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
Here are some more of the many benefits that hundreds of patients are experiencing from testosterone replacement at our West Palm Beach, Florida-based hormone clinics right now.
A 2009 study concluded that “Restoring testosterone levels to within the normal range by using testosterone replacement therapy can improve many of the effects of [low testosterone]. Most importantly, these include beneficial effects on mood, energy levels, and patients’ sense of well-being, sexual function, lean body mass, and muscle strength, and bone mineral density (BMD), cognition, and some benefits on cardiovascular risk factors.”

“I started working with Hormone Logics about a year or so ago. I was in my 40s, always moody, very irritable, and I didn’t have the energy to be productive around the house after a long, stressful workday. After being tested, sure enough, my body was not producing as much testosterone as it once did. Since getting treated here, it has dramatically improved my life. Carl P., Boca Raton, FL
