Testosterone deficiency symptom checker

The Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male (ADAM) questionnaire is a fast way to find out if you have symptoms or signs that may be related to low testosterone.1 Simply select which of the listed symptoms and/or signs below that you have been experiencing, and then click the 'submit' button to view your results.

If your results show that you have symptoms and/or signs of low testosterone, you should have your testosterone level checked, which is done by a simple blood test.2-8

Print out your results and show your doctor. A positive result on the ADAM questionnaire does not necessarily mean that you have testosterone deficiency (hypogonadism), which requires the presence of both symptoms and/or signs and a low testosterone level,2-8 but it provides a good starting point for a constructive dialogue with your doctor about what may be causing your symptoms/signs and what treatment options would be best for your situation.
