New Poll Shows Men, Women Incorrectly Blame Symptoms of Low,Testosterone on Normal Aging

Women Report Partner's Symptoms Negatively Affect Relationship

BOCA RATON, Fla., June 25, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- Results of a new nationwide survey show that more than half of women whose male partners have symptoms of a medical condition known as low testosterone incorrectly attribute them to the normal course of aging. The survey also found that, while women believe their male partner's symptoms of low testosterone negatively impact their relationship, treatment of the condition improves the quality of the relationship.

Low testosterone, or testosterone deficiency associated with hypogonadism, is a medical condition caused by disease or damage to the testicles, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland that inhibits hormone secretion and testosterone production in men. As many as five million men over the age of 18 have lower than normal levels of testosterone.(1)

"Most people don't realize that low testosterone is a serious medical condition, and one that can have an impact on the entire family," said Tanya Abreu, President and National Program Director, Spirit of Women Health Network, which commissioned the survey. "If left untreated, low testosterone can affect a man's overall health, personal relationships, and quality of life. And, it can also affect his partner's perception of the relationship and quality of life. At Spirit of Women, we believe health is quality of life."

As reported by the women surveyed, symptoms of low testosterone in most symptomatic men included lack of energy (64%), decreased libido (61%), less strong erections (64%), a sad and/ or grumpy mood (58%), and irritability (60%). Symptoms most troublesome to women with a symptomatic partner are mood swings (91%), depression (91%), irritability (86%), a sad and/ or grumpy mood (81%), and decreased enjoyment of life (74%).

The online survey of 2,008 women aged 30 or older (mean age 45.8 years) in a romantic relationship f
