Hypogonadism: Indications and Management in Males

Male hypogonadism is a condition where the body produces insufficient amounts of the hormone testosterone, which is important for male growth and development during puberty. There is a definite need to raise hypogonadism awareness within the medical establishment, particularly among primary care physicians, who are often the patient's initial point of contact. Hypogonadism can have a considerable negative impact on one's quality of life, resulting in the loss of a job and the splitting of couples, which can lead to divorce. Doctors must also understand that testosterone is more than just a sex hormone.
