The hypothalamus hypophyseal gonadal axis in individuals with chronic renal insufficiency and subjected to hemodialysis


Revista Espanola de Fisiologia 41(4): 443-446
The hypothalamus hypophyseal gonadal axis in individuals with chronic renal insufficiency and subjected to hemodialysis
The role of pituitary and sexual hormones in 21 patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) affected to impotence and loss of libido treated by hemodialysis and in 15 normal male controls has been studied. In both groups the serum levels of FSH, LH and TSH, PRL before and after injection of both LHRH and TRH were measured as well as the basal levels of testosterone (T) and Estradiol (E2). The results show similar values for testosterone in both groups and statistically significant higher basal values for FSH, LH, TSH and PRL and lower basal values for E2 in CRF patients.
