UNLABELLED: The prevalence of late-onset hipogonadism (LOH) in men is not accurately determined and may be overestimated. Androgen deficiency is causally linked to insulin resistance, regardless of age. Clinical signs of androgen deficiency are not uniquely specific for LOH. The aim of this study was to assess the correlations between androgen serum levels and clinical symptoms of andropenia depending on the age. We evaluated the relationships between the frequency of LOH and metabolic syndrome (MS) and compared different methods of androgen assessment in the context of their clinical relevance...

The progressive aging of the population and the wish to keep a good quality of life in advanced ages makes testosterone deficit syndrome associated with aging a health issue of increasing relevance. It is a proved fact there is a decrease of androgen levels associated with aging. Nevertheless, there are some difficulties to establish what is the actual prevalence, since there are some ambiguities about which clinical and biochemical parameters allow us to state a correct clinical diagnosis. The figures on prevalence are variable, specially taking into consideration the different age ranges found in the studies, but we could say there would be a global prevalence of around 6% to 12% of symptomatic hypogonadism in the age range between 30/40 and 70 years, with a progressive increase with age There is a series of factors that may favor androgen deficit increasing the prevalence in different population groups...

Hypogonadism in men is defined as a complex of signs and symptoms due to testosterone deficiency or inappropriate production, which occurs in about 1-2%. Symptoms of hypogonadism depend primarily on the age of the male patients at the time of development of the hypogonadism (pre- or postpubertal). The dominant findings are: impaired puberty, decrease of virilization, infertility or decrease of spermatogenesis, impotence and gynecomastia. Classically hipogonadism is divided into primary (hypergonadotropic) and secondary (hypogonadotropic)...
