Disease/Condition Glossary

Hypogonadism: It is also known as gonad deficiency. Hypogonadism is a condition that occurs when the sex glands or gonads (testes in men and ovaries in women) produce little or no hormones. When this condition happens in males, it is defined as low serum testosterone or andropause. There are two types of hypogonadism, namely primary and central. Primary hypogonadism is a condition where your gonads aren’t producing sufficient hormones due to an underlying problem. Central hypogonadism occurs when the hypothalamus and pituitary gland regions that control gonads do not work properly. Symptoms of hypogonadism in males include loss of body hair, muscle loss, abnormal breast growth, reduced growth of penis and testicles, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, and infertility. 

Delayed puberty occurs when a teenager has sexual characteristics delayed than the usual age of puberty.
