It is shocking that the recent study which claimed that testosterone causes heart attacks has found its reach within certain medical circles, then to the masses, considering the obvious flaws within the study itself. Not surprising are the attorney's looking to make a buck off anything they can spin to their benefit. They are using this flawed study to generate lawsuits against Big Pharma producers of testosterone medications. The problems within this study include: Lack of testing and monitoring estradiol conversion, which can happen in aging men and easy to manage with proper treatment. Lack of testing and monitoring Hematocrit/red blood cells which can become elevated in men given testosterone. This is also easily manageable and preventable when properly monitored.
