Male Hypogonadism at Urology Clinic DRHC Dubai

Male hypogonadism is a condition characterized by the body's inability to produce sufficient amounts of testosterone, the hormone responsible for male growth and development. This condition can affect men of all ages and lead to a variety of physical and emotional symptoms.

Causes of Male Hypogonadism

Male hypogonadism can be classified into two main types:

  1. Primary Hypogonadism: This type is caused by a problem in the testicles themselves, such as Klinefelter syndrome, undescended testicles, or injury to the testicles.
  2. Secondary Hypogonadism: This type is due to a problem in the hypothalamus or pituitary gland, which are parts of the brain that signal the testicles to produce testosterone. Causes can include pituitary disorders, inflammatory diseases, and certain medications.

Symptoms of Male Hypogonadism

The symptoms of male hypogonadism can vary depending on the age at which it develops. Common symptoms include:

  • In Adolescents and Adults:
    • Decreased libido
    • Erectile dysfunction
    • Decreased muscle mass and strength
    • Increased body fat
    • Fatigue and low energy levels
    • Mood changes and irritability
    • Reduced body and facial hair
  • In Children and Adolescents:
    • Delayed puberty
    • Poor growth of genitalia
    • Lack of deepening of the voice
    • Poor muscle development

Diagnosis of Male Hypogonadism

Diagnosis typically involves a combination of medical history, physical examination, and blood tests to measure hormone levels. Additional tests may includes:

  • Semen Analysis: To evaluate sperm production
  • Imaging Tests: Such as MRI or CT scans to check for abnormalities in the pituitary gland or hypothalamus
  • Genetic Testing: To identify any genetic causes of hypogonadism

Treatment Options

Treatment for male hypogonadism aims to restore normal testosterone levels and alleviate symptoms. Options include:

  • Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT): Administered through injections, patches, gels, or implants to increase testosterone levels.
  • Clomiphene Citrate: A medication that stimulates the body's natural production of testosterone.
  • Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG): An injection that stimulates the testicles to produce testosterone.
  • Lifestyle Changes: Including regular exercise, a healthy diet, and weight management to improve overall health and well-being.
