Testosterone Therapy May Lead to Fatal Blood Clots

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 30, 2016 — Testosterone treatment can increase a man’s risk of potentially fatal blood clots, a new study suggests. Researchers found that men taking the male hormone seem to have a 63 percent increased risk of a blood clot forming in a vein, a condition known as venous thromboembolism, or VTE. These clots can cause a heart attack, stroke, organ damage or even death, according to the American Heart Association. “Risk peaks rapidly in the first six months of treatment and lasts for about nine months, and fades gradually thereafter,” said lead researcher Dr. Carlos Martinez of the Institute for Epidemiology, Statistics and Informatics in Frankfurt, Germany.
