Does growth hormone deficiency lower testosterone levels?

No: Your pituitary controls a number of hormones including thyroid, growth, testosterone & estradiol, among others. While growth hormone deficiency won't "lower" testosterone, pituitary damage leading to growth hormone deficiency can also lead to hypogonadism or low testosterone. It's also common to have a defect in just one hormone rather than all. Traumatic brain injury is not a major concern. ...Read more

Good question: Gnrh would seem by its name to help release gonadotropin. And if used in a certain fashion it could cause the release of gonadotropins (lh, fsh). However when given in a shot and having a sustained effect on the pituitary, it actually suppresses the release of lh and fsh. And this aspect of the medication can be used to help in many situations. ...Read more
