Testosterone and Cardiac Health

Testosterone has been repeatedly picked on by the FDA. In Europe they have shown it to be safe and not a cause of heart issues. In the USA some poorly designed studies have caused the FDA to panic and unfortunately scare the public. Therefore, you may see reports that Testosterone causes heart disease when in fact the good studies are not showing this correlation. The bottom line is that each adult should make his/her decision about their body and what is needed in order to live their life optimally after having a proper hormone consultation.

A regulatory body representing European Union member states has confirmed it believes there is little consistent evidence of an increased risk for cardiac problems in men who receive testosterone products to treat hypogonadism (low Testosterone ).

The Coordination Group for Mutual Recognition and Decentralized Procedures – human (CMDh), a body that examines questions related to marketing authorization of medicines in two or more member states, issued its final position on testosterone today.

“Taking all the data into account, the signal for an increased cardiovascular risk associated with the use of testosterone remains weak and inconclusive,” according to an EMA statement.
