Testosterone replacement therapy and cardiovascular risk

Aging men with low testosterone levels who take testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) are at a slightly greater risk of experiencing an ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), or myocardial infarction, especially during the first two years of use, reports a study appearing in The American Journal of Medicine, published by Elsevier. The research aimed to confirm or reject concerns raised about the potential risks associated with the testosterone hormone replacement therapy in Houston and other health agencies.
