In Hypogonadism, men lose the ability to produce physiological levels of testosterone. Hypogonadism can be classified as primary, due to a problem with the testes or secondary due to a problem with the hypothalamus or pituitary gland. The condition can also be a combination of primary and secondary conditions. Genetic abnormalities, testicular trauma, orchitis, and radiation treatment or chemotherapy are some of the major factors that cause primary hypogonadism.

For instance, according to the European Association of Urology: 2016 report, in middle-aged men, the incidence of hypogonadism varies from 2.1% to 12.8%. The incidence of low testosterone and symptoms of hypogonadism in men aged 40-79 varies form 2.1% to 5.7%, in Europe. Hypogonadism is more prevalent in older men, in men with obesity, those with co-morbidities, and in men with a poor health statusFurthermore, according to the Therapeutics Advances of Urology Journal: 2016, testosterone has become one of the most widely prescribed medications in the U.S. in 2011. These increase resulted in significant growth of testosterone replacement therapy, from US$ 18 million in the 1980 to US$ 1.6 billion in 2011, resulting in five-fold increase.

According to several experts, type II diabetes mellitus patients may also suffer from low testosterone levels. Visceral obesity may significantly lead to insulin resistance. An increased deposition of abdominal adipose tissue in the hypogonadal patients can reduce testosterone concentrations. According to the Indian Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism, 2017; a study conducted on 900 men with type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM) to evaluate the testosterone deficiency reported that prevalence of hypogonadism in T2DM patients was found to be 20.7%. Moreover, the percentage prevalence of hypogonadism in patients with T2DM was moderate with highest number of patients belonging to age group 50–59 year.
