Chapter 3 The Clinical Diagnosis of Androgen Deficiency Gregory C. G. Hellstrom Introduction The clinical diagnosis of androgen deficiency can often be a challenge for physicians. 1). The severity of the signs and symptoms between body organs is often discordant, with the magnitude of signs and symptoms often not matching measured testosterone levels. Although the true diagnosis of androgen deficiency requires confirmatory laboratory testing of serum testosterone levels [1], clinicians must often use their best clinical judgment about when to order laboratory tests, since there is insufficient evidence to justify screening for androgen deficiency in the general population [2].

Currently, efforts to create standardization of testosterone assays are underway. Accurate reference ranges for testosterone measurement by liquid chromatographytandem mass spectroscopy are being developed. These norms need to be established in normal healthy patients of varying ages, with normal sexual and reproductive function. Calibration of the methodology and population-based reference ranges for free testosterone by equilibrium dialysis are also needed. Increased accuracy in the measurement of testosterone and SHBG will lead to improvement in calculations of free- and bioavailable testosterone.
