What is this?
Low Testosterone Syndrome is the continuous low production of the main male sex hormone (Testosterone), produced by the testicles.
The main cases of decreased testosterone production are:
The lack of Testosterone can negatively affect:
The importance of investigating the syndrome is great both for possible treatment of the etiology and for possible pharmaceutical substitution
Hormonal investigation – monitoring is done with the analyses:
We assess the total production of testosterone and the available hormone responsible for the biological action (most of it is bound - stored on proteins, which are inactive).
They are hormones of the pituitary gland of the brain and are responsible for the stimulation of the testicles and the formation of testosterone from them. They are used to locate the problem (hypothalamus, testicles, age).
A hormone that in case of excessive production (e.g. prolactinoma) prevents the production of testosterone.
In replacement treatments with testosterone preparations, tests must be monitored:
Laboratory check of substitution levels.
Check for the possible excessive rise in hematocrit by the effect of testosterone on the medulla.
It is possible to occur dyslipidemias, which are an indicator of metabolic disorders.
Prostate stimulation and possible hormone-dependent neoplastic disease are checked.
IMAGING PREVENTION CHECKS
It is possible to be requested an imaging test for the full assessment of the syndrome.
Substitution therapy control
