What is Hypogonadism?

Hypogonadism is a condition where the male sex glands (the gonads) produce insufficient testosterone. With low testosterone levels, men can experience a variety of symptoms that interfere with their overall health and wellness. The most common reason for hypogonadism in women is menopause, and it’s common for men to experience something similar as they get older (sometimes known as andropause).

What Causes Hypogonadism?

There are two types of hypogonadism which are categorized based on the problem area.

Primary Hypogonadism

This type of hypogonadism means the testicles don’t function properly, producing an insufficient amount of testosterone. Primary hypogonadism can be the result of genetic conditions, radiation treatments, fetal abnormalities, infections, or even injuries.

Secondary Hypogonadism

Secondary hypogonadism means the testicles don’t function properly because of a problem with the hypothalamus and pituitary gland in the brain. Conditions or medications which affect these areas of the brain can be responsible for hypogonadism. It can also be linked to aging and obesity.

Hypogonadism Symptoms

Low testosterone levels can cause many noticeable effects in men. These include:

  • Decreased sex drive and sexual function
  • Low energy
  • Decreased muscle mass and increased body weight
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Brain fog and difficulty concentrating
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Hot flashes

These symptoms can be disruptive to your daily health and well-being, interfering with your ability to do well at your job, enjoy your hobbies, and live a vibrant and active lifestyle. Our providers can learn more about your symptoms and help you develop a personalized treatment plan accordingly.

Hypogonadism Treatment

Low testosterone levels can easily be treated with testosterone replacement therapy. By supplementing vital testosterone in the body, many men experience higher energy levels, better mental clarity, improved sex drive, and much more. Our providers will help you develop a personalized treatment plan with hormone therapy to help you recover your vitality and wellness.
