The testosterone treatment therapy Testim is a clear translucent topical gel which contains 1% testosterone approved by the Food and Drug Administration
in 2002. According to recently published studies the use of testosterone therapy medications has been shown to significantly increase the risk of serious cardiovascular complications including heart attacks, blood clots and stroke resulting in death.
