Testosterone, is the most important male (androgen) hormone in the human body. Testosterone is also referred to as a steroid or anabolic steroid and is important for making red blood cells and keeping bones and muscles strong. A reduction in testosterone levels has been associated with depression, increased body fat, and lower sex drive. As growing older has been proven to result in a reduction of testosterone in the body, testosterone therapy (Low T Treatment) may help fill the gaps left by age. Low T treatment can take many forms ranging from gel applied on upper body areas, skin patches, and also biweekly injections. Though generally considered helpful, Low T treatment has also been associated with many adverse side effects such as:
- Risk of stroke
- Cardiac problems
Though approved by the FDA, individuals undergoing Low T treatment with drugs such as:
- Android 10
- Android 25
- Testosterone Cypionate
Many have reported adverse problems and filed suit against manufacturers for not providing sufficient warning for these side effects. Citing studies that have found a link between Low T treatment and an almost doubling of the risk of heart attacks in some men, along with other negative effects, over 2,700 lawsuits have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL) to help expedite the process.
