A study associating the use of testosterone therapy with a 30% increase in the risk of heart attack, stroke and death was published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association). What were the results of the study?

The study looked at two groups of veterans with medical problems: those who were taking testosterone therapy to treat low testosterone and those who were not. The group of veterans taking testosterone therapy were generally healthier than the veterans who were not taking testosterone therapy.

The study found that in a three year period the men on testosterone therapy suffered 29% more heart attacks, strokes and deaths than the men who were not on testosterone therapy.

The study's authors ruled out other diseases as a cause of this association.
