The Book

Hey everyone. This is the second video in this series on low testosterone.

The cause of low testosterone that we are covering today is low functioning of the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is under command of the hypothalamus. It’s role is to send hormones out to signal the release of hormones from different glands including the thyroid, the adrenals, and the gonads.

In a functional medicine clinic, we should be trying to find the cause of the patient’s low testosterone. If you are suffering with low testosterone, be sure to work with a practitioner who understands that pituitary function is an important place to look when trying to find the cause.
