If Anxiety causes low testosterone, why is it not treated...

Here's a pretty obvious question. If many acute anxiety conditions such as Generalised Anxiety Disorder that are often caused by brain damage (hippo campus) cause low testosterone, then why are not more anxiety disorders of this nature treated with the use of even low doses of testosterone hormone replacement therapy? I mean, many other conditions that are treated with testosterone hormone replacement therapy such as primary and secondary hypogonadism that cause an individuals testosterone levels to drop are treated with testosterone hormone replacement therapy, so whats the difference? Surely both sets of conditions are caused by damage to a part of the body that regulates stress hormone (i.e. the hippo campus or the pituitary gland) and both conditions cause significant drops in the levels of testosterone. However, I understand that the testosterone levels of those who suffer from anxiety disorders may fluctuate more than someone who suffers from primary or secondary hypergonadism, however, if you adjust the dosage of the hormone therapy for example in gel form, surely it would be possible to still optimize a persons hormone levels so that they can live a normal life and not have to be prescribed anti-psychotics that rob a person of their life/livelly hood and dignity. Surely this is an area of psychiatry/endoctr inology/neurology that needs to be looked into further. I would also recommend that someone develop an instrument that can meassure a persons testosterone level at home without the need of professional services, as then it may be possible to tailor the patients dose to suit his present state. Better than killing half the populations or turning them into zombies. Thanks  (Sep 6, 2011 | post #1)

How many blood tests normal to diagnose and treat low tes...

Hi. I was wondering if someone could help. I have had tests over the last few months to determine on whether I have a condition such as hypogonadism that causes Low testosterone as one of the symptoms. I was wondering how many blood tests are normally required in order to ascertain whether treatment with hormone replacement therapy is required. The first 2 blood tests came back with a very low result. (6.9) and extremely high Cholestorol. (i am 38 years old). Would two tests normally be enough for an endoctrinologist to prescribe HGH such as the one that comes in the form of gel. That's for example, with out any other abnormal results. And with other physical symptoms that suggest that I am suffering from a congenital condition such as the mosiac variation of Klien Felter Syndrome. (I have atrophy of the gonads without varicocelle, I can not build muscle in the chest or the arms easily, I do not have much chest hair and do not full facial hair, plus fatigue/anxiety/co gnitive impairment/extende d sleep or extreme anxiety/extremely anxiety if over exercise/sensitvit y to caffiene). Reiterate the question. How many blood tests normally required in order to get treatment for standard diagnosis? Thanks  (Aug 27, 2011 | post #1)
