While I do agree with some of this post, mainly in the sense that similar to me, you would like to see society be preventive rather than reactive in regards to health problems, I do disagree with some of it as well. Hypogonadism is a serious endocrine DISEASE, disorder, malady, or whatever termyou prefer.
I am sorry folks, and although I am not a urologist/andrologist, endocrinologist, or primary care physician, I do not believe that abnormally low levels of FSH, LH, and testosterone are caused by what appears to be trivial matters: low fat diet, you got upset cause you got an F on a paper, you are dieting down for a show, etc, etc.
I personally have IDIOPATHIC secondary hypogonadism. I did not take anabolic steroids, nor did I suffer from any accident, tumor, or disease that would damage my pituitary gland. However, I did test consistently low for FSH and LH and therefore low testosterone levels when I started to have testosterone problems.
Believe me, I suffered quite a bit for a year before finding a qualified andrologist-urologist: clinical depression, complete erectile dysfunction, anxiety, sore joints, and tight muscles. After taking Androgel for 4 years, I am the most alert, creative, fit, and enthusiastic I have ever been in my whole life.
This could be to other matters I got control of or enhanced, but being relieved from the symptoms of hypogonadism has done its share in enhancing the quality of my life. So, in conclusion, I believe in being preventive and proactive in regards to staving off disease, but I do believe that when someone is suffering from a disease, we need to be corrective and reactive.
