Gender-Affirming Hormone Therapy Could Raise Cardiovascular Risk

Gender-affirming hormonal treatment (GAHT) appears to be associated with increased cardiovascular risk in transgender men. 

In a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study, researchers assessed lipid profiles, anthropometric measurements, blood pressure, and Framingham 30-year cardiovascular disease scores for 309 transgender people undergoing GAHT.

These measurements were taken at baseline and checked again 12 months later and 24 months later.

The research team discovered "unfavorable lipid changes" that could be linked to poor cardiovascular health in transgender men. 

Transgender women were not at higher risk, the authors noted.
