Male Hypogonadism

Male hypogonadism is commonly referred to as testosterone deficiency. This condition is caused by the testes’ reduced ability to produce testosterone, sperms, or both. Generally, hypogonadism can disrupt the functions of several body organs and can affect the quality of life.

Moreover, the impact of male hypogonadism can have varying consequences, depending on a person’s age at the time of the onset. For instance, male hypogonadism stops the progression of puberty when it occurs before puberty. Similarly, this condition can cause sexual dysfunction or infertility when it occurs after puberty.

Fortunately, male hypogonadism treatment in Dubai is possible with several methods and procedures. We will discuss those treatment options here, but let’s first describe this condition’s types, symptoms, and causes.


Male hypogonadism or lack of testosterone is identifiable through various symptoms. Generally, these symptoms depend on the age of the onset and the degree of testosterone deficiency.

Younger adults and adolescents who are yet to achieve puberty will appear younger than their age. These individuals will have smaller genitalia, reduced voice depth, lack of facial hair, and insufficient muscle mass, even with a daily workout regimen.

Similarly, male hypogonadism after hitting puberty can cause:

  • Enlarged breasts
  • Decreased size of testes
  • Impaired development of genitalia

Moreover, adult-onset hypogonadism may result in:

  • Depressed mood
  • Lethargy
  • Decreased libido
  • Low sperm count
  • Overall reduced strength and muscle mass
  • Sleep issues
  • Decreased bone density
  • Sweating
  • Reduced energy levels


Male hypogonadism is characterized by a decrease in either or both of the essential functions of testes: testosterone production and sperm production. This loss of function can happen for several reasons.

  • Primary hypogonadism: Primary hypogonadism causes the testes to become unresponsive to hormone stimulation. This unresponsiveness develops due to a congenital disorder called Klinefelter’s syndrome or is acquired due to chemotherapy, radiation treatment, tumors, or trauma to the testes.
  • Secondary hypogonadism: This condition develops due to a disease state interfering with the pituitary or hypothalamus gland. These glands release hormones that stimulate testosterone production in the testes. Therefore, the inability of these glands to release hormones subsequently results in impaired testosterone production in the testes. Situations that can lead to secondary hypogonadism include stress, malnutrition, medication side effects, systemic illness, toxins, liver cirrhosis, and obesity.

Some common risk factors for male hypogonadism include:

  • Obesity
  • Type-2 diabetes
  • Renal failure
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Hypertension
  • HIV
  • Substance abuse
  • Taking steroids
