Recent medical studies have indicated that testosterone replacement therapy may increase the risk of severe cardiovascular problems, including:
A 2010 study on testosterone therapy was ended early after low-T gel was associated with an increased risk of heart attack and other side effects. A 2013 study found that testosterone therapy was associated with an increased risk of adverse outcomes. A 2014 study found that testosterone therapy drugs may double the risk of heart attack among men older than 65. After the 2013 and 2014 testosterone therapy studies, the FDA launched an investigation into the health risks associated with testosterone therapy like Testopel.
Testopel is a testosterone replacement therapy treatment administered by injecting a pellet under the skin that secretes testosterone. Testopel is often used by men who do not want to use testosterone gel like AndroGel or a roll-on product like Axiron, which requires daily application. Testopel is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in treating men with hypogonadism, which is a medical condition of low or non-existent testosterone production. The FDA approved Testopel in 2008. The drug is made by Auxlium Pharmaceuticals.
