What is ADAM?

ADAM stands for Androgen Deficiency in Ageing Men. Basically, it means that your male hormone level has fallen below the normal range, leading to symptoms which are often associated with ageing.

The key male hormone is predominantly produced by the testes. It’s required by all men for a healthy life, physically and psychologically. As well as stimulating sperm production and sex drive and is also crucial for the development of muscle and bone mass. It’s normal for your body to produce less as you age, but abnormally low levels can lead to unwanted symptoms.

About 1 in 200 Men Under 60 Years of Age suffer from ADAM. In men older than 60 years the ratio is 1 in 10.
