Did you know that, according to the New England Research Institute, 25% of males over the age of 30 are currently suffering from low testosterone?

Although this seems like an alarming figure now, researchers anticipate that this number is only going to increase over time. It is predicted that by 2025 there may be as many as 6.5 million American men between 30 and 79 years of age with symptomatic androgen deficiency, an increase of 38 percent from the year 2000 population estimate.

You might be asking yourself how can you determine if you have low testosterone before having your levels checked. A series of ten questions was developed and it can help males understand if they are low in testosterone. It's called the Adam (Androgen Deficiency in Aging Males) Questionnaire.

However, before we present you with the ten questions, you can first evaluate if you suffer from the general symptoms associated with this condition. For example, increases in body fat, a decrease in energy levels and lean body mass, mood swings, depression, and anxiety.

If based on the general symptoms and the answers to the questionnaire you feel like you could be suffering from low testosterone, you should consult a physician to have lab work done. You might be a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy, which has been proven to provide many health benefits such as improved mood, more energy, healthier heart, stronger bones, improved cognitive function and libido, a decrease in body fat and an increase in lean body mass.

  • ADAM (Androgen Deficiency in Aging Males) Questionnaire
  • Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?
  • Do you have a lack of energy?
  • Do you have a decrease in strength and/or endurance?
  • Have you lost height?
  • Have you noticed a decreased "enjoyment of life"?
  • Are you sad and/or grumpy?
  • Are your erections less strong?
  • Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?
  • Are you falling asleep after dinner?
  • Has there been a recent deterioration in your work performance?

You might have low testosterone if you answered "yes" to question 1 or 7 or if you answered "yes" to 3 or more questions.
