Is Dr. John Crisler really worth the trip from NY for a 28 yr old man suffering from secondary hypogonadism? Anyone use him?
#2---I do not use Dr. John Crisler
#3---describe your problem, how it happened, details
#4---you have said SECONDARY
that may be a good news (testicles are working)
that may be a bad news (you have bad system that is supposed to do all the regulations (of LH & FSH).
Problem is that that system regulates more than just LH & FSH.
Hormones of the Pituitary
The Anterior Lobe
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
Growth Hormone (GH)
Alpha Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone (α-MSH)
The Posterior Lobe
So, you see, if you are secondary,
you should check all above hormones, at least
then you should do pituitary MRI to figure out if something is not growing there.
but you may have been kicked in the head
or just hit in the nose, specially a bridge, where eyeglasses rest
If zip code 07410 is accessible to you, my doc is there.
Many patients are happy with his approaches. I have worked with his patients seperately looking at lifestyle, nutritional and other examining other factors to compliment current treatment.
Hormones are just part of the equation as there are many other factors that need to be examined to help the person to get well again.
He's got all the support from the board he needs now between you two :P
Sequence is extremely important.
You do not want to start with other factors.
There is a thousands of other factors.
List is newer ending.
Fix (in this sequence)
you may find that list of other factors is either zero or almost none.
And that includes nutritional/digestive/emotional problems.
Likely many allergies are in that bunch too.
Another words, most people in their teens eat crap and feel good, strong, happy with stiff one in their pants,
excellent steroid and thyroid hormones.
Proper way and clincally proven with results with minimal hormone intervention
1. Lifestyle, nutrition, sleep patterns, stress management,
2. identify root cause (biological, physical, environmental, psychological)
3. Remove root cause
4. Support proper hormones system in the mean time if neccessary..
I have dealt with cases mayoclinic and other top university could not find answer. It takes time and desire to look for the root cause which most drs do not have the time to do.
car won't start you strip the engine apart and put it back together. Your girl friend comes out "hey moron did you check the gas pump"".
