35 yo. testosterone 200.

all viral tests negative...what else can cause this?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Two things can cause this. Either pituitary failure to produce FSH and LH or secondary testicular failure. Sometimes viral infections can cause this as well. Only two things you can do too. Switching to boxers may help since the testes need to be several degrees cooler than body temperature. If that does not work, then supplementation may help. Good luck! DTD

Osteoporosis, Osteopenia
low testosterone
