Do you struggle with losing weight and can’t seem to shake those extra pounds on your belly?
Feel like you’ve lost some of your strength and muscle tone?
Feel like you’re “off your game” when it comes to your physical relationship with your partner?
Feel like you have less energy or just feel generally unmotivated?
Don’t simply chalk these symptoms up to aging. We often find underlying problems that can be corrected to get you back to feeling like your old self again!
As men pass the age of 30, they begin producing less testosterone. This decline in hormone production (called andropause) is gradual, occurring over several decades. In fact, testosterone levels drop by about 10% per decade.
When there is a rapid decline, especially in a person with a pre-existing borderline low testosterone level, symptoms may occur sooner than expected and be a cause for concern.
Take The Andropause Test
The ADAM questionnaire screens for symptoms of low testosterone (Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male).
This basic questionnaire can be a very useful screening tool for men to describe the kind and severity of their low testosterone symptoms.
Please answer yes or no to the following questions:
1. Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?
2. Do you have a lack of energy?
3. Do you have a decrease in strength and/or endurance?
4. Have you lost height?
5. Have you noticed a decreased “enjoyment of life”
6. Are you sad and/or grumpy?
7. Are your erections less strong?
8. Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?
9. Are you falling asleep after dinner?
10. Has there been a recent deterioration in your work performance?
If you Answer Yes to number 1 or 7 or if you answer Yes to more than 3 questions, you may have low Testosterone.
What consequences may be observed in a man with low testosterone?
- Low sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Poor memory
- Poor focus or concentration
- Lack of motivation or competitive drive
- Decreased muscle mass or strength
- Slower post-exercise recovery or recovery after injury.
- Increased upper body or belly fat
- Increase risk of pre-diabetes or diabetes
- Increased risk of heart disease
Is Andropause serious?
While researchers continue to debate this matter, what we do know is that many men suffer needlessly from symptoms like fatigue, low sex drive, and unwanted weight gain.
These symptoms can impact their daily lives including work performance and personal relationships.
Clinical research points to an association between low testosterone levels and increased cardiovascular risk in men. Low testosterone levels may increase cholesterol, reduce bone density, and contribute to insulin resistance or diabetes.
Why we are different
- advanced cardiovascular risk factors
- vitamin and mineral levels
- markers of inflammation
- digestive function
- effect of toxins
