Testosterone therapy concerns

Posted: Updated:

Testosterone replacement therapy has been shown to improve muscle mass, bone density and sexual function.        

But a new report in the journal of the American Medical Association says men considering that therapy should know there are some concerns, including a nearly 30% greater risk of death, heart attack and stroke, compared to men not taking testosterone.      

The journal report comes after studying more than 8,000 men.
