Although the diagnosis of andropause is usually based primarily on presenting symptoms, testing of hormones and other simple blood tests are often helpful to determine the nature and severity of andropause and to rule out other more serious or confounding conditions.
Common symptoms of andropause include, but are not limited to:
Mental decline – irritability, depression, anxiety
Decline in Libido
Erectile dysfunction – Difficulty attaining/maintaining erections
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Weight gain – especially in abdomen
Loss of muscle mass and muscle weakness
