You (Probably) Don’t Need Low-T Drugs
Past research has shown that Low T drugs may cause blood clots. Then this year a big study found that these overprescribed pills, gels, and creams can increase the risk of heart attacks in younger men who really don’t need them. “This is a warning that testosterone therapy shouldn’t be prescribed cavalierly,” says Dr. Bradley Anawalt, a testosterone researcher at the University of Washington in Seattle. “Men with borderline low testosterone but without testicular or pituitary disease should be very cautious. These drugs are not a magic potion to restore youth, and there are risks.” Pharmaceutical companies would have you think otherwise, though—even though there’s no science to show that these drugs even work for guys in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and even 50s who don’t have an underlying medical condition. If you’re looking to boost your mood or get your swagger back, you’ll likely have better luck by de-stressing, sticking to a workout routine, and eating more vegetables.
