If a young man's low testosterone is a problem for a couple trying to get pregnant , gonadotropin injections may be an option in some cases. These are hormones that signal the body to produce more testosterone. This may increase the sperm count. Hedges also describes implantable testosterone pellets, a relatively new form of treatment in which several pellets are placed under the skin of the buttocks, where they release testosterone over the course of about three to four months. Injections and nasal gels may be other options for some men.
I am confused as to how this is different than hypothyroidism….?? I guess I don’t get it all. I do have a question though, I have a chronically low temperature, EXCEPT when I’m at a doctor’s office. Is it that I am always bundled up because I’m so cold or know I will get cold? I usually run anywhere from -, but I have found that every time I think I have a fever, I check and that is when my temperature is the lowest, yet I am hot and sweating and very uncomfortable! Is there an explanation for this?
I have Metastatic Melanoma and was treated with Keytruda for a year. It killed my Endocrine system, including my Pituitary gland, Thyroid, Adrenals, and everything else. I take NP Thyroid for HT, Cortisone 2X daily for Adrenal insufficiency. I am suffering from Chronic fatigue that’s had me in bed for 12 weeks. I am too tired to get up. I feel like I’m feverish and have spells of convulsive chills, followed by drenching sweats, usually at night. When I check it, my body temp has been at . I stopped taking Synthroid because it was making me feel bad and went to NP Thyroid. I almost immediately felt better….for about 3 months, then the fatigue started. My labs look normal but I know that they shouldn’t necessarily look normal when on NDT when the lab is testing for normal levels when on Synthroid. I would appreciate any thoughts from anyone.
