Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 25-year-old friend has recently been diagnosed with hypogonadism, and I am seeking guidance on the available treatments and potential side effects. Could you share insights into the medications or testosterone therapy options that are commonly prescribed for this condition? Considering my friend's age and overall health, are there any specific considerations or lifestyle changes that can complement the treatment? I am eager to understand how we can navigate this diagnosis and support my friend in maintaining optimal health. Any advice on what to expect in terms of treatment outcomes and potential adjustments along the way would be greatly appreciated. Do you suggest any therapy for him?What is in the future for him?

Kindly help.

Answered by Dr. Sugreev Singh

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern.

Yes, actually, in such cases, I suggest hormonal therapy (method of treating the patients with hormone supplement, which the body lacks in production), but we need to find out which hormone deficiency is there and at which level; if the brain is not able to produce enough growth hormone or other hormones, then we need to treat, so further examination is required in this case to check out at which level you have an obstruction or decreased levels of hormones. I suggest that you should check your testosterone levels before taking testosterone medications. So please check your testosterone levels and, if there are any deficiencies, then we can give you medications accordingly.

I hope this information will help you.

Kindly revert back in case of further queries.

Thank you.
