World Health and the American Academy of Anti-Aging medicine have stated that after examining the research completed by the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston examining Medicare claims of 25,420 beneficiaries treated with testosterone therapy for up to eight years that, “testosterone therapy did not associate with an increased risk of heart attack”. The group also states that the study further showed that testosterone users with a higher probability of cardiovascular problems had a lower rate of heart attacks in comparison to equivalent patients who did not receive testosterone therapy.
This is very exciting news to see an additional study show that testosterone therapy, under the proper guidance of a physician, lessens ones risk for heart attack according to this study. Go through our other blogs to find further analysis and studies and read for yourself on how testosterone therapy decreases the risk for heart attacks, strokes, prostate cancer and death.

The University of Texas Medical Branch has completed a research study in 2014 to examine the links between testosterone use and risks of Cardiovascular events or Myocardial Infarction. The study aimed to look more closely at these issues following a January, 2014 study we previously posted that came to different conclusions. This more recent study concludes stated that: “Older men who were treated with intramuscular testosterone did not appear to have an increased risk of MI. For men with high MI risk, testosterone use was modestly protective against MI”.
