Androgen deficiency is linked with low testosterone levels.
Androgens are secreted by testis and adrenal glands. Androgens play a crucial role in the development and maintenance of male reproductive and sexual functions, body composition, bone health, and behaviour.
Low levels of circulating androgens during pregnancy can cause disturbances in male sexual development, resulting in congenital abnormalities of the male reproductive tract.
Testosterone levels decrease slightly as a process of ageing: signs and symptoms caused by this decline can be considered a normal part of ageing. However, low testosterone levels are also associated with obesity and several chronic diseases.
Some symptomatic patients may benefit from testosterone replacement
Because this syndrome commonly occurs in men who are middle-aged and older, it was termed adult-onset hypogonadism (AOH). European Male Ageing Study states that the prevalence of this is 13.8%. The cut off value of serum testosterone is 300ng/dl and 9.4 U/L for luteinizing hormone (LH).
When considering (Testosterone replacement therapy) TRT, the goals of therapy should include restoration of testosterone levels to the mid-normal range, approximation of endogenous production, avoidance or reduction of significant adverse effects, and alleviation of the associated signs and symptoms of AOH
Men who are interested in fertility should not be given exogenous testosterone.
There are various preparations and routes of administration of the testosterone. It is available as oral, cutaneous gels, mucosal gels, injections and pellets.

After initial semen analysis test at famous maternity hospital, we found condition of Azoospermia(with zero sperm in semen), so doctor referred us to Dr.Praveen joshi for further consultant. Dr Joshi explained us everything in detail, and reasons why sperm count can be zero. He suggested some Hormone tests and scanning to decide if sperm production is normal in the body. After this Dr.Joshi himself have operated PESA at Cloudnine and successfully extracted sperms required for IVF. Trust worthy doctor, I would recommend everyone to go for this doctor.
