Men's Health Quiz

The Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male (ADAM) questionnaire has been widely used as a screening tool for detecting men at risk for androgen deficiency (means the body has lower levels of male sex hormones, particularly testosterone, than is needed for good health). These ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions help to identify symptoms associated with androgen deficiency. This questionnaire allows practitioners to more accurately screen for earlier unrecognized androgen deficiency, as well as monitor patients’ responses to treatment. 


ADAM Questionnaire:

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 noted 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?

NOTE: A positive questionnaire result is defined as a “yes” answer to questions 1 or 7 or any 3 other questions.
