Did you know that there are 2 primary reasons we experience low testosterone?
- The first is called Primary Hypogonadism. This condition is due to testicular failure. Your testicles essentially stop or slow the production of testosterone. Like the Pancreas, the testicles are a hormone producing organ and subject to malfunction. The pancreas produces insulin and when cells of the pancreas falter or fail, we experience a form of diabetes. The testicles are subject to the same type of dysfunction.
- The other is Secondary Hypogonadism. This is due to a hormone signal interruption from one of two hormone producing glands in the brain. The Hypothalamus or Pituitary gland. These glands are responsible for producing hormones that stimulate the testicles to produce both testosterone and sperm.
How do we effectively test for or determine which type of Low T or Hypogonadism you may be dealing with? YOU NEED MORE THAN JUST A TESTOSTERONE TEST!
