Hypogonadism: Causes & Symptoms |

Hypogonadism essentially is low testosterone production. The body is not making enough of the male hormone.

Dr. Daniel Martinez, Urologist with Baptist Health South Florida, also affirms hypogonadism can happen in women too, because they produce testosterone from their ovaries and their adrenal glands.

He describes this is a disease of aging and other diseases such as diabetes, sleep apnea, obesity or genetic abnormalities. All of these conditions can lead to body not being able to produce testosterone.
Loss of body hair, bone disease, reduced growth of penis and testicles, fatigue, erectile dysfunction and infertility are some of the hypogonadism symptoms, the doctor affirms.
