Testosterone for a Healthy Heart

David Brownstein, M.D. By Friday, 16 March 2018 01:53 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

The number of people receiving testosterone therapy has increased by leaps and bounds over the past decade. In the journal Annals of Pharmacotherapy, researchers studied 6,355 older patients who had received at least one testosterone injection, and compared their risk of heart attack to 19,065 matched nonusers of testosterone.

The researchers found that testosterone shots were not associated with an increased risk of heart attack.

In fact, patients who received testosterone had a 16 percent lower risk of heart attack. For men at the highest risk, there was a 31 percent reduction in risk of heart attack.

Recently, there have been reports that testosterone therapy may increase heart attack risk. But those reports go against nearly 50 years of literature demonstrating that low testosterone increases the risk of heart disease.

The first patient I treated with testosterone was my father, Ellis. Testosterone therapy literally cured his 25-year history of angina in a week, and his cholesterol fell more than 100 mg/dL, without even changing his lousy diet.

Since then, I have treated hundreds of patients with testosterone. As part of a holistic treatment regimen, testosterone therapy is very effective for reversing many of the signs of heart disease.
