You're experiencing low sex drive, your energy level isn't up to par and your strength isn't what it used to be when you were a younger man.

These are conditions that occur in any aging male, but they are also related to a drop in TESTOSTERONE production. This condition is called ANDROPAUSE; an emotional and physical change that many men go through because of slowly declining TESTOSTERONE levels.

It's been known for a long time that the TESTOSTERONE produced in the testes is reduced, as men get older. But lately more attention is being paid to what can be done about this condition clinically.

Where men used to shrug it off as an expected part of the aging process, doctors have now discovered the medical solution to address these symptoms.

ANDROPAUSE will eventually happen to the majority of men. When it does, it's not a sudden condition; it creeps up on you gradually. So, although it's sometimes referred to as male menopause, it's different from what women experience, which is an abrupt change in hormone levels accompanying the end of the reproductive cycle.

At 40-49 years of age, about 2% to 5% of men have symptoms of ANDROPAUSE. From 50-59 It jumps to anywhere from 6% to 40% of the population. If you're 60-69 years-of-age your likelihood is somewhere in the 20-45% range. From 70-79 it affects about 34% to 70%. And when you're over 80 about 91% of men have it. The numbers aren't a strict science. But the treatment is, and that means that if you are concerned, at any age, you should see a doctor at Maximum Performance Clinic to find out what can be done.

The ADAM (Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male) questionnaire screens for symptoms of low testosterone. This basic questionnaire can be very useful for men to describe the kind and severity of their low testosterone symptoms.

1. Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?
2. Do you lack energy?
3. Is your strength or endurance decreased?
4. Have you lost height?
5. Have you noticed decreased "enjoyment of life"?
6. Are you sad or grumpy?
7. Are your erections less strong?
8. Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?
9. Do you fall asleep after dinner?
10. Has there been 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.
