SMSNA Consensus Statement and White Paper Executive Summary: Adult Onset Hypogonadism (AOH)

In August 2015, a colloquium of experts commissioned by the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) convened in Washington, DC, to discuss the common clinical scenario of men who present with low testosterone (T) and associated signs and symptoms accompanied by low or normal gonadotropin levels. The Panel consisted of 17 experts in men’s health, sexual medicine, urology, endocrinology, and methodology. The Panel deliberated regarding a rigorous diagnostic process to document signs and symptoms of AOH, the rationale for treatment with T, and a monitoring protocol for T treated patients. The primary purpose of this document is to support health care professionals in the development of a deeper understanding of AOH, particularly in how it differs from classical primary and secondary hypogonadism, and to provide a conceptual framework to guide its diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up.
