A new study found that testosterone injections present an increased risk of suffering from a stroke or a heart attack―even a higher risk than testosterone gels.
The study, Comparative Safety of Testosterone Dosage Forms, was published online in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Internal Medicine in May 2015. Researchers wanted to compare the various ways of delivering testosterone; they looked at injections, gels, and patches.
According to the study, patients who used testosterone injections experienced a “greater risk of cardiovascular events, hospitalizations, and deaths compared with gels”.
In April 2015, Carey Danis & Lowe reported on a different study that found the opposite, that testosterone gels present more cardiovascular risk than testosterone injections.
These conflicting results can be confusing, so the decision to use any testosterone product should be carefully considered with a physician.
