A question about hypopituitarism and hypogonadism, low LH/FSH and testosterone levels?
In men, the combination of low LH and FSH in combination with a low testosterone confirms LH FSH deficiency hypopituitarism , a high testosterone would indicate a source elsewhere in the body such as a testosterone secreting tumor . Does that mean that LH FSH deficiency or hypopituitarism causes low testosterone levels? If not, what causes the low testosterone levels, and must it be present in addition to low LHFSH to confirm hypopituitarism? What is the difference between hypopituitarism and hypogonadism? Does one have to have hypogonadism to have low testosterone levels, or could hypopituitarism be sufficient? Sorry if my questions are a little unclear. And please, simple explanations, I am not a doctor.

Why can you survive hypopituitarism without treatment?
If the pituitary is so important, and even though you do not receive the hormone replacements of some of the hormones the pituitary produces, why can you still live?
I have had a couple of abnormal symptoms that have progressed since Fall of 2005 possibly earlier . I've had muscle weakness, constipation even with normal feces , and the BIG THREE increased hunger I eat like once every four hours and almost starve on a full meal for a 7 hour fast , increased urination bout 14 times a day , and dry dry skin which, now what looks like acne is building up all over my skin everywhere. .Now I got all this junk but I wasn't totally aware of each one until I noticed most people urinate like 5 times a day. My doctor suspected diabetes mellitis at first, but a blood test showed that I was negative for diabetes. I have been consulted to a urologist and I have yet to go since my parent's Medicaid is dead for a while. . Guess I'll have a hard time in soccer season Senior year . Unless I get help of course .

Hypopituitarism and infertility.?
I'm 18, male and have a medical condition called hypopituitarism. This basically means my pituitary gland is deficient and therefore certain systems are messed up, such as the endocrine and reproductive ones. I know I'm young but I feel sick at the thought of not being able to have children in the future due to infertility. I was just wondering if there are any medications treatments that are aimed at treating such problems and the names of them so that I could do some research. Thanks
