Low Testosterone lawsuits are now being filed after several medical studies have shown a strong association between certain testosterone replacement therapy medications, such as AndroGel, and increased risk for dangerous cardiac events including heart attack and stroke.
In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), researchers found that there was a significant link between the use of testosterone therapy and Myocardial Infarction (heart attack) after testing more than 9,000 older men who had been using a variety of low testosterone therapy medications.
About Low Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Low testosterone, commonly referred to as “Low T”, is a medical condition in which a man suffers from a lack of testosterone.
While it is normal for men to experience diminishing levels of testosterone as they age, some older men have testosterone levels which are much lower than normal.
Symptoms of low testosterone can include a low sex drive, loss of muscle mass, hair loss and fatigue, as well as several other medical conditions.
As a result, a variety of testosterone replacement therapies have been introduced in the American market over the last few years to combat against the symptoms of low testosterone.
However, as mentioned above, studies have found that these treatments can come with potentially hazardous side effects.
Low T Lawsuits Being Filed
After learning of the dangers associated with low testosterone replacement therapies medications, many individuals have filed legal complaints against companies responsible for producing the medications.
These lawsuits allege that certain producers of low testosterone medications intentionally neglected to inform the public about these dangerous side effects.
“The number of lawsuits relating to Low T therapy continues to grow at an alarming rate,” says Laurence Banville, Esq. of Banville Law.
