Testosterone Lawsuits, Lies, Truths and Transition

In a recent article on the innumerable lawsuits on the undisclosed/skewed harmful life threatening side effects of those treated with testosterone has now taken an even scarier turn. Has the Male Medical Machine invented Low Testosterone so that they can team with Big Pharma by treating killing naturally aging men and using their aging insecurities to fuel the diagnosis thereby increasing profits?

From the article:
Just Googling lawsuits surrounding two of the testosterone culprits (Andro-Gel and Testosterone Cypionate) vomits a spew of results:
 



You cannot watch television for more than a hour before seeing a commercial (or several) on the lawsuits from men or the families of a deceased male who has suffered from testosterone treatment and these lawsuits are growing daily as can be seen in the two screencaps above. If testosterone in low doses is harming/killing males who naturally produce high levels of the hormone, what is this drug doing to young females seeking/being transitioned?

Is the harmful side effects of testosterone in HIGH doses, testosterone used for the entire life of the female patient mind you, being FULLY explained? Is it being explained to parents giving consent in many cases for their daughters?

"The use of hormonal therapy in transsexualism is associated with appropriate physical change. Side effects in carefully monitored patients are usually few but are more likely to cause serious complications when therapy is too aggressive. This is particularly true in the FTM transsexual patients who are likely candidates for complications of dyslipoproteinemia which include premature atherogenesis, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, increased insulin resistance, and obesity. Investigators propose that initial treatment with androgen therapy which must be supraphysiological to suppress gonadotropins and virilize the patient should be kept to maximum of no more than 2 years. Following sex reassignment surgery, the dosage should be reduced by half in most patients. It is likely to reduce not only the duration of large dosage androgen therapy but also the potential risk of endometrial hyperplasia and uterine carcinoma. The role of the concerned physician is to be fully aware of potential risk of this therapy so as to adjust treatment and minimize potential complications."

Hmmmm....
Ahhhh...
Oh god....
I'm reminded of the X Files motto: The Truth is out There. The Testosterone Trials coming up next year will prove interesting if the men win their cases and testosterone used in various treatment regimens, including the transition of females and is rightfully removed from the market.

Let me add, I am working on several posts breaking down and simplifying the medical mumbo-jumbo that surrounds the various studies of testosterone on trans females.

    True...

    I googled androgel and lawsuit and got about 179,000 results

    Googling testosterone and lawsuit resulted in 541,000 hits

    Men naturally produce lower levels of testosterone as they age. Doctors who give testosterone to men to boost their libido in an attempt to restore their youth aren't doing men any favors. It's not worth a stroke or heart attack. This is a good website,

    Men naturally produce less testosterone as they grow older. As the levels of the hormone decline, they experience a reduced sex drive, lower sperm production, and a reduction in bone density and muscle mass. None of these side effects necessarily indicate hypogonadism. But that hasn’t stopped pharmaceutical companies from aggressively promoting low-T therapy as an effective treatment for them.

    "Researchers have recently found evidence that testosterone therapy may increase the risk of blood clots, stroke, pulmonary embolism, and serious heart conditions, such as myocardial infarction (heart attack). In some cases, use of the treatments may result in death."

  2. With Androgel there is also the risk of transference. That is, the transference of testosterone through human contact. Men or transmen (females who "transition") rubbing in Androgel then having close physical contact with another person. There is no risk of transference with injections.
