Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) drugs are pervasively over-prescribed, according to many researchers and medical professionals. This is true even though TRT drugs can lead to serious and potentially fatal medical conditions including stroke and heart attack.  Testosterone therapy was first introduced nearly 40 years ago as a drug to treat a serious, but rare, medical condition known as hypogonadism. Over the past decade or so, testosterone replacement therapy has become one of the most-used elective medications, as hundreds of thousands of men have become convinced that taking testosterone will serve as a panacea for most if not all of the symptoms of normal male aging.

Boston Products Liability LawyersIt all starts with a commercial on the radio or on a click bait ad on the web that asks men if they have experienced a  loss of libido, general fatigue, joint pain, weight gain, loss of muscle tone, and a variety of other conditions that normally happen to men as they get older.  The ad them tells them if they take testosterone replacement therapy, they will feel much better and most of these so-called symptoms of a low testosterone count will get better, or go away entirely.

There is a good chance that most men who are 40 years of age or older have been told about the benefits of taking testosterone replacement therapy. They did not likely hear this from a doctor, but rather from the many TV commercials during sporting events, Internet pop-ups and magazine advertisements.

syringeIn fact, you probably did not hear about the benefits of testosterone hormone from your doctor unless you are over 70 years of age, because doctors are not sure what it means to have low testosterone. While this may sound strange, there is not even a medically approved consensus on what a normal testosterone level is. Continue reading

According to a recent article from Science Daily, a 12-week exercise program has been shown to significantly increase testosterone levels in men who are obese or overweight.  Those who exercised more vigorously showed an even higher percentage in testosterone level increase than those who only exercised modestly during that 12-month period. These results are based on a study that was presented at the Biology of Exercise 7 meeting in Arizona.

greenpillsThis is good news, though it might not be welcomed news to the drug companies that make testosterone replacement hormone drugs.  As we are told on the many commercials and magazine ads, men will experience lower testosterone or “T” levels, as they have coined, as they get older.  This is part of the normal male aging process, and the “symptoms” of normal male aging are gaining weight, loss of libido, fatigue, mild depression, loss of muscle tone, and other similar similar symptoms.

According to a recent news feature from Yahoo Finance, industry experts are predicting that there will be a roughly 4 percent increase in the world testosterone replacement therapy market over the next handful of years.  While this may seem like a good thing for the testosterone hormone industry, it is actually a relatively modest rise as compared to the huge increases we have seen in the past decade or so.

These numbers are extremely low. Continue reading

As you are probably aware, testosterone replacement therapy has become very popular over the last ten years. While the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved testosterone replacement hormone in the 1970s, there were very few people taking the drug. The reason for this is because testosterone replacement therapy was only approved to treat a very rare medical condition known as hypogonadism.

test-tubes-1-1416029-mHypogonadism is a rare disease that involves male children and adult men with extremely low testosterone levels – to the point where it is causing a serious medical condition. This was a very rare disease in the 1970s, and it is still a rare disease in 2016. However, while the number of patients with a need for testosterone replacement therapy has not gone up, the number of men taking the drug has gone up over 400 percent to the point where hundreds of thousands of men are taking testosterone hormone on a regular basis.

There is no question that pharmaceuticals are big business in the United States and many other places around the globe. These are companies earning hundreds of billions of dollars each year, and the last thing they want to see is revenue down and their stock value falling.

While the medical community is generally unsure what, if anything, testosterone replacement therapy actually does to benefit the majority of men who are going into so-called Low T clinics across the nation and taking the hormone, testosterone replacement therapy is the main treatment option on the market.

There are so many advertisements for low testosterone treatment with hormone therapy that it is almost impossible watch a football game on Sunday without hearing a soothing voice tell you how you can get rid of the normal signs of the male aging process by going to a so-called low T clinic.

monitorYou may be wondering why they are telling all men in and around their middle ages to get to one of these low T clinics instead of making an appointment with their primary care physician. There is a very good reason. The medical community is not convinced that testosterone therapy does anything for the majority of men who are taking the hormone. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved testosterone therapy in the early 1970s to treat a medical condition known as hypogonadism. This is a very rare disease that involves an extremely low production of testosterone. Continue reading

Hoards of testosterone products have been heavily marketed to men in recent years, promising increased vigor, stamina and health. Drug manufacturers marketed these to males who reportedly suffered from “Low-T,” or an inadequate level of the hormone. workingout

We are now learning the reality is not only are these drugs ineffective for that purpose, they may actually cause a substantial amount of harm.

A new study conducted by researchers at the University of California Santa Barbara and published in the Journals of Gerontology: Medical Sciences indicates these drugs are linked to a markedly increased risk of diabetes and prostate enlargement.
