It’s easy to think that because testosterone is a naturally occurring male hormone that it is perfectly safe to take testosterone supplements for “Low-T,” as drug manufacturers refer to it in their commercials.
Taken to counteract low libido, reduced muscled mass and flagging energy levels, many men think a shot or gel application of testosterone is just what they need to increase their self confidence and feel more masculine.
However, like almost all drugs on the market testosterone therapy is not without significant risks. The likelihood of having a stroke or heart attack increase markedly, and medical professionals have tied a link to Low-T therapy to prostate cancer and death.
Watching the happy, smiling actors on the commercials beaming at their lovers and engaged in manly tasks leads some consumers to forget that these are scripted scenarios for the sole benefit of increasing the profit margin of the pharmaceutical companies. They fail to show the negative side effects from taking the testosterone supplements, and the cost to quality of life for those who opt for treatment.
