Here are a few questions and answers about testosterone products and supplements:
What Exactly Is The Problem With Testosterone Therapy Drugs?
According to the FDA, these products can cause serious blood clots, referred to as venous thromboembolism (VTE). This can also lead to deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), which are potentially life-threatening conditions. If a blood clot travels to a lung or to the heart, for instance, it can block blood flow to that organ, causing extensive damage or death.
What Is The FDA Doing In Response?
As of 2014, the FDA is demanding that manufacturers of all approved testosterone products include a written warning on their products, explaining the risk of blood clots in the veins.
