Hypogonadism is a chronic condition for most people. Some suffer short term Low T resulting from infection, physical, or emotional stress. When the infection is treated, the physical damage is healed, or the emotional stress is alleviated testosterone levels can return. Men who have been experiencing symptoms for months are considered chronic and will need on-going treatment. If therapy is discontinued the symptoms will return. This is similar to diabetics needing insulin or patients that are on medication for thyroid issues.
