LH linked to HD not T

LH is secreted by the brain to instruct the leydig cells to produce t. T is obviously necessary for the brain to operate normally. LH goes up when T is insufficient, it goes down when T is sufficient. Is it possible that the leydig cells are not responding adequately to the LH, and this discrepency between the brain’s needs and what it gets is contributing to HD? I don’t think this hypothesis has ever been tested.
