Experience & Career
Sandeep Dhindsa, M.D. an Associate Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Medicine at Texas Tech University of Health Sciences Center-Permian Basin Campus, Odessa, TX. His primary area of research is in the field of hypogonadism and type 2 diabetes. He is frequently invited to give talks and grand rounds on the topic of hypogonadism in men. He is a member of the Scientific Reproductive Committee of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.
Working as a member of the research team with Dr. Dandona at the State University of New York at Buffalo, Dr. Dhindsa has spent most of his academic career over the last 10 years investigating the association of type 2 diabetes and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Obesity and diabetes-associated hypogonadism are not due to elevated estrogen concentrations in obesity. The latest data shows that the testosterone concentrations in obese adolescent boys are only half those of lean boys, thus implying that obesity affects the HPG axis even at puberty. Dr. Dhindsa is the primary investigator on a grant from the American Diabetes Association and co-investigator on a grant from NIH to elucidate the effects of hypogonadism in men with type 2 diabetes or obesity on insulin sensitivity and inflammation and the response to treatment with testosterone or clomiphene.
