Androgel Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) Lawsuits

0 Comment

In a recently published research in the Journal of the American Medical Association, men above 30 years of age with prolonged use of testosterone supplements are more likely to suffer from Myocardial Infarction (heart attack).  The study was conducted on 8700 men in a 3 years span and testosterone supplement takers where at a 30% higher risk of suffering from attacks.

Why Men Use Androgel

The bigger issue seems to be the fact that Androgel is aggressively marketed as a drug that can transfer a normal aging male to an alpha male.   While such claims are largely untrue, most advertisers do not show the potential health risks of the product.  Moreover, there have been no trials to prove that Androgel is safe over the long term.

Ideally Androgel was created for men with low testosterone levels. The purpose was to normalize the libido, strengthen bone density and improve energy levels.  However, the drug is being prescribed to many men who do not even need them.

One of the biggest issues with Androgel is that it can lead to a condition called polcythemia.    WIth this condition, there is an increase in the production of red blood cells which can lead to thickening of the blood and hence blood clots. These clots can prove to be fatal as they could cause thrombophlebitis.

At the same time Androgel can also cause an increase in cholesterol levels which when combined with blood clots can be fatal for the heart. Patients can also face problems with increased blood pressure.  Obesity and diabetes are two other illnesses that have been documented due to continued Androgel intake.
