Does late-onset hypogonadism (loh) really exist? Is there scientific evidence of it?

In brief: Hypogonadism

Secondary or late-onset hypothalamic hypogonadism occurs after you have undergone puberty.
It can be due to stress, weight loss, exercise [ie, marathon runners], brain injury or tumor. An MRI should be considered. You may also experience hypogonadism due to pituitary problems or the gonad failure. Gonadal failure is evidenced by increased FSH level due to genetics, surgery, radiation or chemorx.

This is only peripherally related to my specialty, but as to 'does it exist' you may find this interesting.
