Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) Safe After a Heart Attack?

This remarkable study from 2019 examines the safety and potential cardiovascular health benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). The study focused on 1,470 men with a pre-existing high risk of heart disease, prior history of heart attack and known low testosterone levels. The researchers analyzed recurrent heart disease and mortality rates among the untreated men, those treated with TRT but not normalized, and those treated with TRT whose testosterone levels were normalized.

The study reported that normalizing testosterone levels after TRT was associated with a significant decrease in all-cause mortality. Moreover, the study did not demonstrate any adverse cardiovascular outcomes associated with TRT. The authors concluded that this study’s results demonstrate that TRT with normalization of testosterone levels is associated with decreased all-cause mortality in high-risk cardiovascular patients with a history of heart attack.

In summary, this study suggests that TRT is safe, effective, and can increase health and longevity when used in high-risk cardiac patients with normalized testosterone levels.
