In order to assess a man’s risk for andropause, Dr. John Morley has developed the Androgen Deficiency in Aging Males (ADAM) Questionnaire*:

(Circle One)

1. Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?  Yes     No
2. Do you have a lack of energy?  Yes     No
3. Do you have a decrease in strength and/or endurance?  Yes     No
4. Have you lost height?  Yes     No
5. Have you noticed a decreased enjoyment of life?  Yes    No
6. Are you sad and/or grumpy?  Yes     No
7. Are your erections less strong?  Yes     No
8. During sexual intercourse, has it been more difficult to maintain your erection to completion of intercourse?
  Yes     No
9. Are you falling asleep after dinner?  Yes     No
10. Has there been a recent deterioration in your work performance?   Yes      No

If you answered yes to #1, #7, or any three others, you may have symptoms associated with andropause, according to Dr. Morley.
