How Can Testosterone Blood Clots be Prevented?
The most common type of testosterone-induced heart attack occurs when a blood clot blocks a coronary artery that feeds the heart muscle. Most strokes occur when a blood clot obstructs an artery supplying blood to the brain. Vascular blood clots are a major cause of death in cancer patients because cancer cells create conditions that make clotting more likely.
While normal blood clots are a natural part of the body’s healing process, testosterone blood clots are a significant cause of death and disability. Fortunately, a few easy steps can be taken to greatly reduce your risk of developing a blood clot:
- Move it – When you’re stuck in the same position for a long period of time, blood can pool up in your legs, increasing the risk of a blood clot. Get up and walk around every hour or 2, whether you’re at your desk or on a long car trip. If your legs must be immobile for a week or more due to surgery or bed rest during pregnancy, talk to your doctor about preventing deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
- Live healthy – If you’re a cigarette smoker, quit now. Keep your weight at a healthy level. Drink lots of water; staying hydrated can decrease your risk of developing a blood clot.
- Know the signs – DVT can be tricky to diagnose because some symptoms may be indicators of other problems. Watch for pain, swelling, and redness or discoloration in the legs; you also may feel warm around the affected area.
- Be proactive – If you have an injury or are preparing to undergo surgery, talk to your doctor about how to prevent a DVT. And if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, go to the nearest emergency room immediately.
- Quit taking testosterone supplements – Recent studies have found that men who use testosterone boosters may be twice as likely as non-users to suffer a life-threatening blood clot.

Most cases involving pharmaceuticals allege that a drug was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain side effect. In the case of testosterone supplements, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that manufacturers failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of blood clot.
How Can Filing a Lawsuit Help Me?
By filing a lawsuit against the maker of a testosterone replacement therapy product, you may be entitled to collect compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to the treatment of your blood clot, as well as for damages for pain and suffering. Additionally, filing a lawsuit can help hold the drug’s manufacturer accountable for releasing an allegedly defective drug into the marketplace, and to discourage other pharmaceutical companies from engaging in similar conduct.
