All you need to know Testicular Hypofunction

About


Testicular Hypofunction is a condition in which the body doesn't deliver enough testosterone — the hormone that plays a key role in masculine development and growth along with sperm creation during adolescence or puberty.


One can be born with male hypogonadism, or it can develop at later stages in life, often from injury or infection. [1]

- Requires medical examination
- Two types of hypogonadism- primary and secondary
- A chronic condition, yet can be controlled with proper treatment


The impacts of male hypogonadism and what you can do about them, rely upon the cause and time in your life when male hypogonadism happens. Few kinds of male hypogonadism can be treated with testosterone replacement therapy.
The doctor may conduct physical examination, test the level of testosterone for the diagnosis.


Symptoms


- Erectile Dysfunction
- Fatigue
- Loss of bone mass (osteoporosis)
- Decreased development of muscle mass

Treatment


Specialists: The specialist after conducting the tests may treat testicular hypofunction either through hormone replacement therapy or testosterone replacement therapy which helps to restore muscle strength and prevent bone loss.
