Dr. Pierone,

At what cd4 would you say hypogonadism is likely to occur? There is not much literature on this in the archives and Im wondering when this is likely to occur~

Response from Dr. Pierone

As a general rule, the lower the CD4 count, the more likely it is that hypogonadism will occur. But since it may occur at any point in the disease process we check for testosterone deficiency whenever symptoms are suggestive. For men with low counts (under 200) we check testosterone levels routinely.
