Question: question I was asked today after class that stumped me...,


 Cman34677 - Thu Mar 24, 2005 7:37 pm

Alright so the guy can't get his temperature anywhere close to 98.6 unless he has a fever, what gives? He is hypogonadic and the doc tried Test but even on cycle it won't come up so I doubt it has anything to do with that. Is this a thyroid related problem, or something to do with his metabolism? (He was not overweight and had a fairly musclular build so i odn't believe it to be this) Over the past 2 weeks He's been monitoring it and it's averaged 94.9 degrees, he says he's freezing even when the house is hot and his wife and kids are complaining they're sweating. thoughts???

Is it maybe a cause of depression?


I'm just stumped

User avatar Have they tested him for Hypopituitarism, Adrenal Hypoplasia or Hypothalamic Dysfunction - Does he have any of the other symptoms of Kallmann's Syndrome?

he said he was tested for hypo and hyperthyroidism and both came back negative.

He says he has the following symptoms Depression,Difficulty in losing weight, Dry Skin, Headaches, Lethargy and fatigue, Recurrent infections, Sensitivity to cold, and sweats profusely when he eats.

it sounds like hypothyroidism to me, but I'm really not sure at all

what do you think?

User avatar Does he have adult-onset idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism or Kallmann's Syndrome? Did he use steroids in his younger years to cause hypogonadism? It may be something to do with hypopituitarism, has he had his pituitary and hypothalamus tested?
