Low Testosterone in Men | Hypogonadism


Posted: June 18, 2015 at 8:42 pm

In men 45 and older, most cases of hypogonadism or Low-T often go overlooked due to the fact that the symptoms may be more general in nature and slower in onset. Many men simply attribute their symptoms to aging and often dismiss them because they don't think that there is anything that they can do about them. This is largely because the symptoms of hypogonadism are nearly identical to those experienced by men going through andropause (the male menopause): low libido, fatigue, depression, memory loss, difficulty concentrating and irritability. The difference between andropause and hypogonadism is simple. Andropause is a natural part of a man's life where his hormones begin to decline right around the age of 35 and continue to decrease until they plateau in his late 60's. Hypogonadism is a condition where testosterone is not being produced due to a physical abnormality of the testes or brain. It can also be due to an outside factor such as stress, poor diet or pre-existing health conditions. Both Hypogonadism and andropause however can be treated and corrected under the care of experienced hormonal specialists.

There are two basic forms of hypogonadism found in men. Primary hypogonadism is also known as ?testicular failure? and stems from a complication in the testicles. Some common causes of primary hypogonadism are:

The other type of hypogonadism is called secondary hypogonadism, and it describes a condition where the testicles are normal on a physiological level, but still don't function properly due to a problem stemming from the pituitary gland or the hypothalamus. This creates a problem with the signal from the brain to the testicle. Although the testicles function well, they can't get the information from the brain that testosterone needs to be produced. Some common causes of secondary hypogonadism are:

The most effective ways to treat hypogonadism are to enhance the body's ability to make its own testosterone or to supplement the testosterone that your body would produce normally, using natural bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy. It is critical to combine bioidentical hormone therapy with appropriate diet, exercise, lifestyle and stress management.
