The ADAM Questionnaire is a standard test used by doctors to determine whether a man has symptoms of low testosterone and therefore might have a testosterone deficiency. Answer yes or no to each of 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?

What to do: If you answered "yes" to questions 1 or 7, or to any other three questions, you might have low testosterone-and you should be tested for total and free testosterone. (See article on page 273 for more information)
