Answer

For males after puberty, the guidelines of the Endocrine Society [3] require that the diagnosis of hypogonadism be based on symptoms and signs of hypogonadism plus the presence of a low testosterone level measured on at least two occasions. Because of the diurnal variation in testosterone levels, a morning sample is recommended.
