Question: Small genitals and eunochoid body
|John2000 - Mon Mar 24, 2008 2:11 pm|
Im male 22.
- my height is 1.82 m while widespan is appr. 2. m
- Very small genitals, no significant growth since age 12
- Long arms and legs. Lower legs hurt when walking. they are also extremely thin, i am surely not exagerrating, its look 'freaky'.
- heat intolerance, very poor muscle recuperation, lack of concentration
- i sometimes see lightflashes when i close my eyes and i hear high pitch tone sound in my head.
- too low FSH (follicle stimulatin hormone) level, normal LH (luitenizing hormone) and testosteron level, but in several cases my testosteron level was way below average!
- I almost perfectly meet the symptoms of secondary hypogonadsim, but i have plenty of body hair! Doctors seemed to be perplexed by this.
What possible cause could i have? What can i do? I hope u can help me.

I would suggest a consultation by an endocrinologist if that is not the specialty you have already explored. There is much information available now through genetics as well with DNA studies so you might try a teaching hospital if you have one associated with a University. Perhaps a geneticist could be helpful.
I'm afraid I don't have any more to offer about this - obviously it is complex.

Thank you dr. Miller for your reply.
I am currently at a university hospital. They just had a insuline tolerance test and luitenizing hormone test. They say i have too low FSH, which makes me infertile.
Yet i have normal level of testosterone, while my other hospital endocronologist said i have too low... i think its a bit confusing, fact is: i have plenty of body hair and body hair means testosterone works, according to my current endocronologist.

Thank you for the update. I am glad you are getting this follow-up. I know it is confusing and hormone levels do fluctuate at times.
