Hello. This is Dr. Love.

There are many other disorders that can cause symptoms similar to thyroid disease. Other possible hormonal problems include low testosterone (hypogonadism) or adrenal dysfunction, and hypogonadism would be the first consideration with a small penis. It also would be appropriate to pursue evaluation for various other metabolic or inflammatory conditions. If your primary care physician is uncertain about what is causing the symptoms, then it would be appropriate to request referral to a specialist.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
