FDA Warning on Testosterone Heart Attack Risk
In January 2014, the FDA issued a Drug Safety Communication after reviewing a pair of independently-conducted medical studies which investigated the link between testosterone supplements like Testopel and heart attack and other cardiovascular risks. The agency’s warning came just four days after a study published in the medical journal PLOS ONE identified a doubled risk of heart attack in testosterone users aged 65 or older, and a tripled risk among all men with a pre-existing history of heart disease.
Additionally, FDA noted the findings of another study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) which linked testosterone boosters like Testopel to a nearly 30% increased risk of heart attack, stroke and death during the first three months of treatment. A third study, which was reported on in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2010, was stopped early after older testosterone users suffered 500% more cardiovascular injuries.
