Thank you for bringing up this topic. It gave me another way of thinking when it comes to my husband's recent diagnosis. I will definitely look into a sleep study for my husband.

I know I'm really late to the party on this topic, but I thought I'd add my two cents in. When I started investigating my symptoms of hypogonadism before I found out I had a microadenoma I saw an endocrinologist (the first of many). She asked me about sleep and snoring. When I told her I snored "like a dumptruck" according to my wife the endo referred me to a sleep doctor. Two sleep studies later, one without and one with a CPAP (fat boy machine as I like to refer to it) I learned I had sleep hypopnea. It's not quite full blown apnea, but the treatment is the same. I use a CPAP at night now and sleep better when I do sleep.
<br> TRT can cause issuse with sleep apnea. I don't know all of the mechanics behind it, but it does. If anyone finds problems sleeping then I'd talk to your endo about a referral to a sleep specialist. A sleep study can determine if it's an apnea issue or if there are other issues (psychological, dietary, etc.) that cause sleep disturbances.
