I'm new to the board,this question I have pertains to a very close friend of mine.I'll try to give a much information as I can.
At the time He was 33 years old and stopped producing semen and was diagnosed with hypogonadism and a MRI was done of the pituitary to rule out a tumor.
He's been seen by a group of doctors at Barnes Jewish hospital in St.Louis lead by Dr.Daniels endro.
During his coarse of treatment HCG was prescribed @ 2000iu three times a week, this has been over a period of 8 months the production of semen has returned, during this time he has lost desire for sex with his wife and has gained approximately 30 pounds of body weight.
Last Monday 4/4/11 was his last shot of HCG @2000iu on his own Just to see how he would feel hasn't taking any since, he has informed me that upon waking Friday was his first natural morning "wood " in quite some time. In other words feels much more manly.
Its evident estrogen has been the dominant hormone over this period of time,to help him with questions to present to his doctors this Friday what would you recommend he should ask?
I'm thinking and I may be wrong?
Complete thyroid function t3 t4 rt3
I'm sure his doctor will pull others, from the knowledge here I just want to make sure he asks for the appropriate tests.
Thank you for your time and help
