Should older men use testosterone applied to the skin, such as testosterone gel, or should they inject testosterone into their muscles? A new study published in April 2015 in the Journal of Physiology – Endocrinology And Metabolism found that the latter is the better option.
Researchers from the University of Florida found that testosterone injections posed less cardiovascular health risks than testosterone gel.
With so many older men turning to testosterone gel as a way to treat signs of aging, finding a safer form of testosterone delivery is important. This University of Florida study shows that there is a better option for older men.
Still, these research findings come as so many men have already suffered heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular health problems as a result of using testosterone gel. These findings come too late for some men.
