If you are over the age of 45, and frequently suffer from lethargy, mood swings, depression, or even loss of libido, anger or anxiety, check it out with your doctor – as you might be suffering from ‘Testosterone Deficiency.’
Though apparently rare in comparison to other diseases, do you know an estimated 2 million adult men in the UK suffer from the deficiency? But, unfortunately, most remain undetected.
According to the latest figures, USA has 13 million men aged above 45 suffering from the disease.
Though, this contributes to only 6 percent of the male population, the affliction is growing significance with the U.S. male population’s ongoing aging, which may eventually lead the number of men suffering from androgen deficiency to increase dramatically.
The lead author of the study, Andre B. Araujo said
Low levels of testosterone impact many aspects of male physiology… Since these men would not likely come to clinical attention, it may be important to determine whether there are clinical risks to missing these asymptomatic men with low testosterone levels.
And, what scientists fear is that, it is only by the year 2025, 6.5 million men will be afflicted with the disease – a considerable increase of 38 percent from year 2000 – a real worrisome and gruesome statistics!
So, American men aging between 30 and 79, if you don’t come in terms with this deficiency by regular check-ups, you may outnumber the symptomatic androgen deficiency.
