Low-T and Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Pennsylvania Testosterone Replacement Therapy Attorneys

Low-T (low testosterone) litigation involves claims from men who have used Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) products and have suffered cardiac-, cerebrovascular- and thromboembolic-related injuries. Some of these types of injuries include heart attack, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis and stroke. In some cases, death may be the result of any of these injuries.

Men who have Low-T and Type 2 diabetes face a more potent risk of developing atherosclerosis than men who are diagnosed with diabetes but have normal testosterone levels. Atherosclerosis occurs when plaque builds up in the arteries. Medical experts say that TRT should be solely reserved for men who show clinical symptoms of hypogonadism, the medical condition for which it was originally approved, and consistent levels of Low-T.

Problems have arisen because various manufacturers of TRT products have marketed them for an off-label use of inconsistent Low-T. While experts do agree that it can help men with consistent Low-T, it was often being prescribed to men at the first signs of low testosterone. There are many TRT products on the market and they come in various forms, such as gels, patches, pellets and injections. We are currently pursuing cases for TRT products that include Androgel, Testim, Axiron, Androderm, Testopel and Fortesta. We are investigating and litigating all cases where men have suffered from heart, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, stroke or death resulting from one these complications while using one of the listed TRT products.
