The testosterone level is in a normal range. Besides, big muscles are not seen very often in Thalassaemics.
Testosterone could raise Hb levels a little and has a influence on bone mass. It is given to male Thalassaemics as a prevention of osteoporosis. The endocrinologist should decide whether or not.

His testosterone level is in normal range. What will help the most is maintaining a good Hb level, above 9.5 and getting the iron load completely under control. Iron prevents proper function of glands, so the iron must be cleared out for normal growth to take place.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

and what about his low FSH level ?? as his FSH level is a lil bit lower than least normal range ... is it something ignoreable ???
