If you’ve been tested and have low testosterone levels, you could be at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease (CDV), according to a new study that pulls from 43 years of research.

Curious about the increase in hormone replacement therapy in men with low testosterone, a research team sought to examine heart disease research done between 1970 to 2013.

The findings, published online in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, suggests that when testosterone levels change, blood clots can appear and lead to irregular heart rhythms and to more serious, life-threatening heart abnormalities.

“When we reviewed the existing research into testosterone and cardiovascular disease, a growing body of evidence suggested a modest connection between the two,” said Johannes Ruige, the study’s lead author.

Overall, the study’s authors suggest that more clinical research is needed into the impacts of low-T therapy on heart disease and cardiovascular health.
