How Do I Know If I Have Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome?
Men who have signs and symptoms of low testosterone and who tested positive on the ADAM quiz undergo blood tests to determine if their testosterone level truly is below a healthy range. The diagnosis of Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome will be confirmed once a man has an unequivocally low total testosterone level on two separate morning laboratory tests.
What Causes Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome in Males?
Causes of testosterone deficiency (TD) are numerous and divided into two main categories: primary causes and secondary causes.
In primary hypogonadism, either a congenital (born with it) or acquired (mumps, trauma, radiation) testicular problem exist such that the testes cannot produce enough testosterone.
Secondary hypogonadism accounts for the majority of low testosterone cases. In this type, testosterone level is low as a result of complex physiological and behavioural factors that interfere with testosterone production in the otherwise normally formed testicles. Common examples of these conditions are obesity, diabetes, and head trauma.
