It is defined as the inability of the testicles to produce testosterone, sperm or both. Some men, as they age, may present symptoms compatible with androgenic deficit, which is known as Andropause or syndrome of ADAM (Androgen Deficiency Aging Male). These should be studied to check the possible decline in hormone levels in the blood.
Early diagnosis and proper treatment can improve the quality of life and prevent later complications such as osteoporosis, etc. Also, other causes of hypogonadism (pituitary disorders, etc.) should also be investigated. We offer the following coverages in this field:
- Diagnostic studies:
- Questionnaires of symptoms
- Hormonal Tests
- Semen Analysis
- Brain imaging tests (MRI, CT)
- Genetic studies
- Testicular biopsy
- Therapeutic alternatives:
- Hormone Replacement Therapy (Injections, Patches, transdermal gel)
A low level of sexual desire, the lack of energy, changes in mood and depression can all be symptoms of low testosterone levels. A simple blood test can determine whether the testosterone level is below normal, and it is possible to replace testosterone using a variety of management systems (for example, injections, patches on the skin, gel).
