The great majority of men on here that are hypogonadal never figure out how to pull their levels up.  In some cases, it's from actual damage (concussions, hemachromatosis, empty sella, etc.) and sometimes it's from being obese.  Doctors rarely actually look for the root causes as it would be expensive and probably only yields results in a small percentage of cases. 

One thing that you may want to look into is a zinc deficiency.  This is correctable and can yield big results.  If you have GI issues, that could explain it.  Here is some info:

But, yeah, the standard supplements out there do not yield good results with the typical secondary hypogonadal guy on here.
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:
https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Versus-Testosterone-Therapy-Myer/dp/1523210532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499116128&sr=8-1&keywords=natural+versus+testosterone+therapy
And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program.aspx
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Along those lines, might as well check vitamin D status too. Also, next time you measure total testosterone, get SHBG; calculating free testosterone may be worthwhile.
