83,000 US Military veteran patients were studied to understand the risks and benefits of Testosterone Therapy for patients diagnosed with low testosterone.  The study found that men diagnosed with ‘Low T’ and restored to normal testosterone levels through physician guidance had lower risks of heart attack, lower risks of stroke, and lower risks of death than the men who lived with low testosterone levels.  This study indicates that testosterone therapy improves heart health.

Testosterone Therapy improves heart health.  “Normalization of testosterone level is associated with reduced incidence of myocardial infarction and mortality in men.”   – European Heart Journal

This study was published in August, 2016 in the European Heart Journal after reviewing the cases of 83,000 US Veterans, over the age of 50, treated between 1999 and 2014.   One of the groups tested showed that Men treated being treated with Testosterone Therapy were 24% less likely to suffer a heart attack, 36% less likely to suffer a stroke and 56% less likely to die during the follow-up period.  The studies results seem to advocate for testosterone replacement therapy, however Dr. Barua stresses the need for “appropriate screening, selection, dosing, and follow-up of patients to maximize the benefit of testosterone therapy. Patients who failed to achieve the therapeutic range after testosterone replacement therapy did not see a reduction in [heart attack] or stroke and had significantly less benefit on mortality.”  

Hormone Therapeutics agrees that one clear point in the study is that patients were under physician guidance and their testosterone therapy was only shown to be beneficial when bringing the patients back from low testosterone levels to normal testosterone levels.  It’s important to note that this study did not show health benefits from patients who were not brought back to normal levels.  This is also not an analysis of men taking high dosages of Testosterone past normal levels and what that does to one’s health.  While traditionally, testosterone therapy has not been prescribed with a goal of improving heart health, this study should lead to more studies to look at that possibility.

A new study, utilizing research data from Veteran Affairs showed that veterans utilizing testosterone replacement therapy had less chance of suffering from heart attack, stroke, or death compared than veterans who were not on testosterone treatment.  The study examined over 83,000 veterans who were diagnosed with low testosterone by the Veterans Affair Medical Center over a 15 year period from 1999 to 2014.

One of the key aspects to healthier outcomes was testosterone therapy that returned the veteran to normal testosterone levels v. higher and supra-physiological levels of testosterone supplementation

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.

No link between Testosterone and Heart Attack Risk

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.
