Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Injuries

Pharmaceutical Injury Attorneys in Norfolk, Newport News & Roanoke

With the growth in treatments for low testosterone, or “low T,” new risks to patients’ health have come to light. Both men and women undergoing testosterone replacement therapies are at increased risks for stroke, heart issues and attacks, and even death. Studies have shown that men using this therapy are 30% more susceptible to death from clots, strokes, and heart attack after three years of being on testosterone treatments. In an additional study, the risks of heart attack and stroke greatly increased within just 90 days of treatment.

With these facts and figures in mind, our Virginia dangerous drug attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC work to build a claim for compensation to those who have been seriously injured. Call (855) 880-8163 to learn more about your rights and options.

Types of Testosterone Therapies

Testosterone treatments are used for those who have a deficiency of male hormones and are usually prescribed in a topical gel or cream.

Common testosterone prescriptions include:

  • Androgel
  • Testim
  • Axiron

Increased Cancer Risks

The same studies discussed above also found a link between testosterone therapies and prostate cancer in men. This was confirmed in 2004 by John Hopkins University, who linked active “free” testosterone in the body and cancer. The lead researcher, Dr. Parsons, strongly advised men to hold off on replacement therapies until the data from more long-term studies and trials were available.

If you or a family member may have suffered injury as a result of a defective low T therapy product, please contact Kalfus & Nachman PC today online or call (855) 880-8163 to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our experienced Virginia drug injury attorneys.
