Kallmann syndrome is a rare disorder in humans developed due to certain genetic factors which is characterized by the absence or delay of the puberty signs associated with the impaired or absent sense of smell. A similar closely related disorder known as Hypogondaotrophic hypogonadism also usually found to be associated with Kallmann syndrome which has similarly absence or pubertal signs without loss of smell. Both of these disorders are developed particularly due to genetic defect leading to isolated deficiency of gondaotropin-releasing hormone, which is a key reproductive hormone. This write up will be all about the Kallmann syndrome, its signs and symptoms, causes, diagnosis, and herbal management by the herbal products offered by Planet Ayurveda.
As Kallmann syndrome is genetic disorder which is caused due abnormal mutation in certain gene leading to deficiency of GnRH, hence it is present since birth of the affected baby. Due to lack of sexual development at puberty, the syndrome comes in notice. In males, the Kallmann syndrome can be suspected even in infancy due to the relatively small size of penis or undescended testicles. However if the Kallmann syndrome is not treated for long time it can result in erectile dysfunction, decreased density of the bones, low sex drive, decreased muscle mass and infertility in males. While in females it is presented by absence of menses, absent, and little or normal breast development. However if the syndrome progresses and not managed timely it can start affecting other parts than the sexual one like renal agenesis (Failure or kidneys to develop), cleft palate or lip, impaired hearing, and abnormalities in dental developments. Usually the Kallmann syndrome is not inherited (Sporadic) however some of them can be inherited.

Kallmann syndrome is genetic disorder, rare in occurrence and occurs due to genetic mutations in genes which are responsible for the production of GnRH which leads to deficiency of the hormone and impairement of all the functions related to it. Usually the genetic mutations occur within own individual and in some cases it can be inherited also. The inheritance occurs in an X-linked recessive, autosomal recessive or autosomal dominant manner. There is no family history in most of the cases however the affected individuals can pass the disorder to their children.
Kallmann syndrome can be diagnosed by the characteristic features showing absence of sexual development or hypogonadism. Sexual maturity can be measured by following the method of “Tanner staging” which is used by endocrinologists throughout the world to measure the primary and secondary characteristic of sexual development. Also the diagnosis relies on the test for sense of smell. MRI and genetic testing are used for the confirmation of the diagnosis.
The main aim of treatment is to induce puberty in the affected individual through hormone replacement therapy. Normal hormonal levels are maintained to have normal sexual development and establish the fertility of an individual. In males, testostestone is the main hormone given to maintain the primary and secondary sexual development and maintain the count of sperms.
Ayurveda has been proved to be wonder for the infertility in males especially due to the abnormal hormones. The various herbs in nature has been used since antiquity to treat the infertility and improper sexual development owing to the potent action of herbs on hormones and their action. Ayurveda have Rasayana or rejuvenative herbs and herbal formulations that restore the normal hormonal balance and strength from within the individual.
