Testosterone Stroke Risks: Increased Risk Of Stroke, Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA), or Cerebrovascular Insult (CVI) In Men Taking Testosterone
If You or Your Husband, Father or Other Loved One Had A Stroke After Being Treated For Low Testosterone, You May Be Able To Recover Money From a Testosterone Stroke Lawsuit Case or Settlement Claim.
Strokes are another of several cardiovascular side effects being investigated by testosterone therapy lawyers and “Low T” attorneys. Testosterone treatments and low t therapy may be linked to an increased risk of suffering from stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or cerebrovascular insult (CVI).
For example, according to recent findings by medical researchers published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), testosterone replacement therapy may increase the risk of stroke in men by 30%. Among 1223 patients receiving testosterone therapy in that study, 67 died and 33 had strokes.
A stroke is a loss of brain function due to the blood supply to the brain being disturbed, interrupted or severely reduced, depriving the brain of oxygen and nutrients. Often, it results from a lack of blood flow due to blood clots (ischemia) in blood vessels supplying blood to the brain or hemorrhage due to a rupturing of the blood vessels. A ministroke (also known as a Transient Ischemic Attack or TIA) occurs when a blood clot blocks a blood vessel, but only temporarily.
Testosterone related strokes may be caused by blood cells increasing in size which may result in a thickening of the blood and a potentially greater likelihood of blood clotting, including ischemic strokes.
A stroke can cause permanent neurological damage to the brain or death. Symptoms of a stroke may include:
- Difficulty walking and loss of balance
- Trouble speaking or understanding (slurred speech)
- Paralysis or numbness
- Difficulty seeing out of one or both eyes
- Side of face droops
- Confusion or dizziness
If you or a loved one had a stroke after being prescribed testosterone, you may be able to recover compensation from a testosterone stroke lawsuit.
If you received testosterone treatments and experienced a stroke or stroke related symptoms you should also consult with your heart doctor or cardiologist for a medical evaluation.
