Hi This is Dr Stan and I will assist you today. Testicular hypofunction basically means that you are not producing testosterone like you should. The testicles are responsible for the production of this hormone. When it occurs after puberty, the body changes are less striking, but there may be a loss of fertility and libido. If the disorder is secondary to anterior pituitary disease, the gonad-stimulating hormone should be administered. You need to see a Urologist to determine the cause and begin treatment. I hope this is beneficial. Should you have additional questions, I am here to answer them.
I had my IGF-1 GNRH LH and FSH measured also as ordered by a consulting Endocrinologist I dont know what those values are but will they be enough to find cause and treatment
These will help to determine cause, but the endocrinologist will probably order additional tests including MRI to determine Pituatary involvement.
Ok thank you
