Due to extensive advertising, the number of testosterone prescriptions and low testoterone (Low T) clinics has grown exponentially across the country. However, some doctors question whether these clinics are helping or harming the aging men that treat at them. According to at least some doctors, thse clinics lure patients in by promising weight loss, increased sex drive, and better sleep.However, the FDA is investigating testosterone's relationship to strokes and heart attacks and doctors are concerned about the long-term risks of the drug.
According to urologist Dr. Herb Singh, Low T Clinics simply offer testosterone prescriptions when a patient's health issue may actually be much more complex. Symptoms of low energy and decreased sex drive may not be due to low testosterone, but instead to sleep apnea, depression, heart disease or even just natural aging. According to Dr. Singh, testosterone treatment could be extremely dangerous for patients with conditions like sleep apnea or heart disease.
