Andropause Symptoms and Test

Andropause (Male hormone deficiency)

It is expected that as a man ages, his levels of male sex hormone (testosterone) will drop gradually. 'Andropause', however, refers to a situation when the drop in testosterone in much larger or faster than is expected.

This drop in male hormone may result not only in deterioration of sexual function but also some other symptoms which may constitute the diagnosis of testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS) , such as:

  • Lack of Drive
  • Poor ability to concentrate
  • Poor memory
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Depressed mood
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased physical fitness/endurance
  • Increase visceral fat with decreased muscle mass

If you suffer from some of these symptoms, a serum testosterone test may be appropriate. This test does not require fasting and should be done in tandem with a serum PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) .
