Were We Lied To? Testosterone Might Not Be All That It’s Supposed To Be
We’ve all seen those Low T ads replayed over and over on the Sports Channel for the last ten years… They always say something like:
Men don’t want to suffer from low testosterone because then they can’t have sex, can’t keep up with their busy lives and can’t be the men they’re supposed to be.
Low T therapy — so said all those ads — was supposed to give our lives back, because, according to those same ads, we all must have been suffering big time from a drop in testosterone.
The ad campaigns could not have been more successful. In the U.S., prescriptions for testosterone drugs have risen 10-fold within the last ten years alone. That’s a lot of successful ad placements and a lot of men who think they could get back to their youthful vitality; all with the help of a gel, or a patch, or a shot.
What if it Was All a Lie?
Our testosterone lawsuit lawyers, along with the help of men’s health experts, have been public in saying that the “Low T epidemic” may be more disease mongering, for the majority of testosterone users than a legitimate health concern.
But decide for yourself.
All you need to understand is what the makers of Low T pharmaceuticals said in those infamous ads — versus what the real and expected results may be.
We’ll tackle the three biggest concerns many men may have: Our love lives, our energy and our moods.
Love Lives: We were told taking testosterone supplements could make our love lives the stuff of legend — or, at least, movies.
Reality? Low T drugs might be linked to heart attack — pretty much the biggest turn-off you could ask for.
Energy: We were told taking a testosterone supplement could bring a boost to our lives. Suddenly, we’d have the energy to play ball with our grandchildren, to take on a new adventure or at least go for a long walk on the beach with our loved ones.
Reality? Low T drugs might be linked to very serious complications like stroke and blood clots.
Mood: We were told taking testosterone supplements would bring a smile to our faces.
Reality? We’re pretty angry. Angry about the risk for heart problems, stroke and other potentially associated complications like sleep apnea and even prostate cancer.
The facts are: any man who was handed a prescription for testosterone should have first had their actual testosterone levels checked; and any man who was handed that prescription, should only have received it for the treatment of an actual disease or medical condition.
Otherwise, Low T may not be worth the risk.
