QUESTION: Affects of testosterone on transitioning men

question / pregunta: 

I'm enrolled in a health class and I've asked my teacher questions about transitioning males and the affects of testosterone on their body, especially considering that estrogen seems to have a protective effect on female bodies. I haven't gotten a straight answer. Particularly, I'm wondering if testosterone makes someone who is transitioning more susceptible to osteoporous and heart disease. It would be great to get this information from a source that has trans people's interests at heart.
