Hypogonadism: Treatment, Diagnosis, and Prognosis


Posted by Professor Anna Gray, Updated on May 21st, 2020

what is hypogonadism low testosterone 199x300Hypogonadism is a condition where the sex glands produce little or no sex hormones. The sex glands are the testes in men and the ovaries in women. Testosterone is produced in the testes and estrogen is produced in the ovaries. These are the two main sex hormones produced by men and women, respectively. Sex hormones control sexual characteristics, such as breast and testicular development as well as pubic hair growth. In addition, both testosterone and estrogen play major roles in the male and female reproductive systems, including menstrual cycles and sperm production. Humans would not survive without sex hormones! Hypogonadism is also called gonad deficiency. In males, it may be called low testosterone/andropause and in women, prior to menopause, primary ovarian insufficiency. Thankfully, hypogonadism can usually be easily treated with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Types of Hypogonadism There are two types: primary and central. Primary hypogonadism occurs when the gonads, or sex organs, have an issue in sex hormone production. The cells in the gonads are receiving the hormonal messages from the brain to produce testosterone or estrogen, but for some reason aren't doing so. Central, or secondary, hypogonadism occurs when the hypothalamus and pituitary gland in the brain are … Read more »

There are many websites and articles to be found in mainstream and scientific journals that claim Hypogonadism (an example being low testosterone, also called hypotestosteronemia) is a "general exaggeration" concerning marketers promoting the concept of "Is it Low-T?" However, for more than 100 years, research has been conducted using injectable testosterone shots on men. In more 10,000 studies on humans (men and women) that have been conducted with this primary androgen hormone, the results definitively prove Testosterone is vital to the health of men and women. The number of Testosterone prescriptions has climbed exponentially in the most recent decades, indicating this is no fly-by-night medical treatment fad. Testosterone Popularity Started in the 1950s Testosterone was first being given to patients in significant numbers during the 1950s; it has, since that time in the middle of the last century, continued to rise in popularity. For a straightforward fact, replenishing testosterone when there are actual clinical … Read more »

Low T – My life was falling apart because I had low testosterone


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on April 16th, 2019

low testosterone diagnosis 300x200Low T Story I stood next to my bags on the sidewalk, looking down at the ground. Humiliated and confused. As my parents pulled up in front of my dormitory, I picked up my stuff and carried it over to the truck, shuffling awkwardly from the exertion as 30 lbs of foreign body fat tried to squeeze its way out of my clothes. I smelled funny, I was a sweaty, an anxious mess, and I had no idea what was wrong. 24 hours earlier, my academic dean explained to me how medical leave works. You simply take a year off from school to address a medical issue, then return when you're feeling better. Sounds simple enough. I sure as hell wasn't feeling great, and I had no idea why. Heck, I was damn near non-functional, spending most of my time holed up in my dorm room, depressed and lonely. I was missing homework assignments and skipping class. And it wasn't because I was some wanna be cool kid truant that I felt the need to skip class. It was as if my body and brain were broken. I found out I had low testosterone (hypogonadism) or Low T, by getting … Read more »

Type-2 Diabetes is caused when lifestyle factors inhibit the body's ability to utilize insulin, which is responsible for the transport and utilization of glucose, the body's primary energy source. There are many factors which increase the risk of Diabetes, but the most powerful and direct cause of diabetes is the overconsumption of simple carbohydrates such as sugar and processed grains. As a result of the dangers of Type-2 Diabetes, which wreaks havoc on the cardiovascular system, tens of millions of dollars are pumped into Diabetes research each year. Another factor which contributes to diabetes is obesity. This is unsurprising, considering that people that are overweight are more likely to consume the foods that lead to diabetes, and are more likely to consume them in great abundance.

Some risks have long been associated with the over-use of Tylenol, one of the most common of which is liver damage. Tylenol is the leading causes of Liver Toxicity in both the United States and Great Britain. A recent study produced by the University of Edinburgh shows evidence that Tylenol use may have another, less recognizable effect upon human beings. When taken regularly during pregnancy, Tylenol appears to suppress Testosterone production by male children in the womb. Tylenol Linked to Reproductive Issues in Boys Previous studies have provided similar data, which shows that taking too much Tylenol while pregnant can lead to increased odds of reproductive abnormalities in the male child. Producers of Tylenol and its generic counterparts are already required to label their bottles to indicate the risk and warn that pregnant women should use Tylenol as briefly as possible with the lowest dosage of … Read more »

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on March 28th, 2020

Overview Male hypogonadism is a condition in which the body doesn't produce enough of the hormone that plays a key role in masculine growth and development during puberty (testosterone) or enough sperm or both. You can be born with male hypogonadism, or it can develop later in life, often from injury or infection. The effects — and what you can do about them — depend on the cause and at what point in your life male hypogonadism occurs. Some types of male hypogonadism can be treated with testosterone replacement therapy Symptoms Hypogonadism can begin during fetal development, before puberty or during adulthood. Signs and symptoms depend on when the condition develops. Fetal development If the body doesn't produce enough testosterone during fetal development, the result may be impaired growth of the external sex organs. Depending on when hypogonadism develops and how much testosterone is present, a child who is genetically male may be born with: Female genitals Genitals that are neither clearly male nor clearly female (ambiguous genitals) Underdeveloped male genitals Puberty Male hypogonadism can delay puberty or cause incomplete or lack of normal development.

Hypogonadism


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on July 30th, 2019

Hypogonadism is a disorder where the testes in men and ovaries in women do not work correctly. It can be very distressing. Thanks to the discovery and development of gender-specific hormone treatments, men, and women with hypogonadism can lead a healthy life. Hypogonadism is the clinical manifestation of the impaired function of the gonads, which in men are the testes and in women are the ovaries. Individual patients have hypogonadism from birth, while others may develop the condition later in their life. The disease has different features in males and females, before and after the onset of puberty. If onset is in pre-pubertal boys, signs, and symptoms of lack of testicular function, include a change of male hair distribution, including facial, chest, and axillary hair, poor development of skeletal muscles, and disturbance of bone growth resulting in abnormally long arms and legs. Blood levels of the male hormone testosterone are low. Also observed are missing laryngeal enlargement, failure of vocal chord thickening, and alterations in body fat distribution. When hypogonadism occurs in males after puberty, low concentration of testosterone in the blood causes lack of energy, weakness, lethargy and diminished sexual function, reduced bone mass and often anemia. In girls … Read more »

Definition Hypogonadism occurs when the body's sex glands produce little or no hormones. In men, these glands (gonads) are the testes. In women, these glands are the ovaries. Gonadal deficiency The cause of hypogonadism can be primary or central. In primary hypogonadism, the ovaries or testes themselves do not function properly. Causes of primary hypogonadism include: The most common genetic disorders that cause primary hypogonadism are Turner syndrome (in women) and Klinefelter syndrome (in men). If you already have other autoimmune disorders you may be at higher risk of autoimmune damage to the gonads. These can include disorders that affect the liver and adrenal and thyroid glands as well as type 1 diabetes. In central hypogonadism, the centers in the brain that control the gonads (hypothalamus and pituitary) do not function properly. Causes of central hypogonadism include: A genetic cause of central hypogonadism is Kallmann syndrome. Many people with this condition also have a decreased sense of smell. Girls who have hypogonadism will not begin menstruating. Hypogonadism can affect their breast development and height. If hypogonadism occurs after puberty, symptoms in women include: In boys, hypogonadism affects muscle, beard, genital and voice development. It also leads to growth problems. In … Read more »

Study Finds Potential Heart Risks from Testosterone Therapy


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Is testosterone therapy more of a benefit or risk for male patients? Its a question once again under the microscope after a 2014 PLOS One study looked at the risk of acute non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI) after men were prescribed a form of testosterone therapy. In lay terms, a myocardial infarction, or MI as it is known, is a heart attack. The study found that men aged 65 and older had twice the risk of having a heart attack after taking a testosterone therapy prescription for 90 days. It also found that the heart attack risk for those participants declined to baseline when they didnt refill their prescription following the initial 90 days of treatment. The study also looked at younger men taking testosterone therapy. Their risk tripled among those with a history of heart disease but did not find a similar risk found if the younger men did not have a family history of heart attacks. Popularity of Testosterone Therapy in the U.S. In the United States, a 2009 study in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, or NCBI, found an increase of more than 500% in prescription sales of testosterone products since 1993.

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

PUBLIC RELEASE DATE: 7-Feb-2014 Contact: Jenni Glenn Gingery jgingery@endocrine.org 301-941-0240 The Endocrine Society Chevy Chase, MDAccording to a statement issued today by the Endocrine Society, the risks and benefits of testosterone therapy for older men with declining levels of the hormone need to be fully evaluated. The statement comes in response to recent studies that have raised concerns about the safety of testosterone therapy in older men with a history of heart disease. Two retrospective analyses and one randomized trial supported by the Veterans Health Care System, and the National Institutes of Health found a higher rate of cardiovascular events in men who received testosterone and had preexisting heart problems. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced it plans to evaluate the safety of testosterone therapy. Testosterone is approved for the treatment of hypogonadism due to known diseases of the testes, pituitary and hypothalamus. Although the use of testosterone therapy is increasing, the treatment has not been approved for the treatment of age-related symptoms or the age-related decline of testosterone levels. Important safety data are expected from the NIA's ongoing randomized trial examining testosterone in about 800 older men with unequivocally low testosterone levels and accompanying symptoms, including sexual … Read more »
