Research Reveals Frightening Consequences of Testosterone Supplement Therapy

Published on June 5, 2015 by

Metabolic health issues have long been a source of confusion for researchers. Even after studying these issues for decades, metabolic conditions like diabetes and obesity continue to plague society. Research studies sometimes produce contradictory results, and relying on a single study can lead to dire consequences if the study's results turn out to be inaccurate.

One of the most notorious examples of contradictory research involves the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to prevent osteoporosis and heart disease among older women. In the 1990s, the American College of Obstetrician and Gynecologists, the American College of Physicians and the American Heart Association all recommended the use of HRT for postmenopausal women. However, in 2002, these recommendations were revoked. According to a New York Times article from 2007, "estrogen therapy was exposed as a hazard to health, rather than a benefit."

Much like recent studies conducted to explore the effects of HRT, research studies focusing on Low T therapies have produced some upsetting results. These results not only reveal that testosterone supplements have the power to cause serious, potentially life-threatening consequences, but they also indicate that testosterone supplements are being prescribed to men when their use is not necessarily indicated.

So just what are these dangerous side effects? We will discuss this in our next blog post.
