Absent GNRH: Test leptin is good treatment. But what is the cause of your hypothalamic pituitary axis malfunctioning? Is it congenital or acquired? If acquired-- look for etiology-- yes-- weight gain helps but only in some kind of acquired causes. If congenital, I am afraid you might need to be on medication - life long.
