Testosterone replacement therapy increases heart attack, stroke, dying by 30%

(1/1)

Testosterone therapy boosted the odds of having a heart attack, stroke or dying by 29 percent in one of the first studies weighing the supplement’s cardiovascular risk.  Testosterone therapy is common for men with HIV.  I wonder how this is going to affect T replacement therapy for hiv positive men with low T?
