SILVER SPRING, Md. — Despite known safety risks, there has been a large increase in the past 10 years in the number of men who have been prescribed testosterone supplements. In order to accommodate the rising number of prescriptions, which have tripled over the last decade, there has also been an increase in the number of low testosterone clinics that have sprung up across the nation.
Testosterone Linked to Stroke and Other Problems
More and more men are being diagnosed with hypogonadism, which is also called low testosterone (or low T for short). Although testosterone gels are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, the FDA is currently reviewing studies that show a link between the use of testosterone supplements and an increased risk of stroke and cardiac problems. Using testosterone supplements can greatly increase your risk of having a heart attack, especially if you are older than 65 or have a history of cardiac problems. Many of the health problems arise from off-label use and liberal diagnosis of low testosterone in men.
Testosterone clinics promote testosterone treatments as a solution to varying health problems from low sexual desire and decreased ability to perform sexually to changes in body composition such as loss of muscle, loss of height and increase in body fat. Low T clinics also list decrease in energy levels, feelings of depression and inability to concentrate as symptoms of low testosterone. Nevertheless, many of these symptoms may indicate other health issues besides just low testosterone levels. With such broad symptoms and with the prevalence of low testosterone commercials and clinics, it is easy to see why the numbers of men seeking testosterone supplements has climbed in recent years.
The low T clinics may provide positive effects for their patients in the short run such as a better night’s sleep, weight loss and an improved sex life. However, there is a long-term cost directly associated with these benefits. Besides the health risks, there are other concerns with low T clinics. Many clinics have recently come under fire for being understaffed with medical doctors. Several low T clinics also do not perform prostate exams on patients before prescribing testosterone treatments, even though prostate cancer may be linked to the use of testosterone supplements.
