We've all seen them during the evening news: testosterone therapies for men with low-t. Is this really a problem about which we should be concerned?

Here are three things you should know about testosterone therapies:

  1. As men get older, they tend to have lower levels of testosterone. Although some have called this "andropause", this is a normal part of the aging process and not usually a concern.
  2. Pharmaceutical companies may be promoting a "problem" that doesn't really exist, in order to sell their products.
  3. There are significant risks in using some of these testosterone therapies including blood clots, strokes and heart attacks- sometimes resulting in death. In many cases the risks outweigh any potential benefit someone might receive from these "treatments."

If you or someone you love has been taking testosterone replacement therapies, and has also suffered in any of the ways mentioned above, you should speak with the attorneys at Ross Feller Casey today.
