A problem in the pituitary gland or hypothalamus results in a condition, in which, little or no sex hormones are produced. This condition is known as Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH). The symptoms observed in a child are different from those observed in an adult. Abnormal development of reproductive organs at puberty, inability to smell and short stature are the symptoms found in a child. Whereas, weight gain, mood changes, loss of muscle mass and decreased energy are some symptoms observed in adults.
