What would be the semen fructose level for the one who has been diagnosed with azoospermia?

my husband has been diagnosed with azoospermia and our dr would like to have a semen fructose level performed on him. I believe she is checking for a blockage or whether or not he even makes sperm. What type of results should we expect, if we are obviously hoping that he can make sperm.

OBGYN Dr. Rhea Chanda's  Response

Azoospermia means absence of sperm in the semen.fructose levels should be determined in any patient with azoospermia. especially in those whose ejaculate volume is less than 1 ml, suggesting seminal vesicle obstruction . Absence of fructose, low semen volume, and failure of the semen to coagulate indicate either congenital absence of the vas deferens and seminal vesicles or obstruction of the ejaculatory duct.Normal levels is13 micrmole or more per ejaculate.
