Men who are struggling with low libido or energy may turn to testosterone therapy to solve these problems, but many are not aware of the increased cardiovascular risks of taking these medications. The law firm of James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C. believes that you have a right to know the risks of any drug therapies you choose to take and will fight to ensure that drug companies are held responsible.
Testosterone therapy is used by millions of men in the United States who are suffering from symptoms of low testosterone. In men, testosterone is important for many body functions, including:
- Bone density
- Fat distribution
- Muscle strength
- Sperm production
As testosterone declines with age, many men opt to replace that testosterone with testosterone replacement therapy. In particular, testosterone replacement therapy is designed for men with very low levels of testosterone, a condition known as “low T” or hypogonadism. However, this testosterone therapy has been linked with blood clots and cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and stroke.
You may have a claim for compensation if you suffered from heart attacks, strokes or blood clots caused by testosterone replacement therapy. Contact us for a free consultation today.
