The AMS survey is the Adams questionnaire on steroids – pun intended.
If you are considering hormone replacement therapy or think you might be testosterone deficient, then this is the tool for you. While this is not the only tool, it is an excellent starting point and surpasses previous surveys such as the Adams questionnaire. The Adams is still a useful tool, but the AMS aligns better with our guidelines derived from ISSAM, the International Society for the Study of Ageing Males.
One of the greatest benefits of the survey is its comprehensive range of questions that specifically address deficiency-related symptoms. The survey provides valuable insight and is worth taking as it can potentially screen for late-onset hypogonadism, which is another term for testosterone deficiency or, in other words, a condition where a man does not feel like himself.
We intend to use this survey as a tool to measure incoming patients and compare their results after starting testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) at 6 months, 1 year, and annually thereafter. This will help us evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment and identify areas for improvement in a more organized and scientific manner. If you haven’t taken this survey yet, we encourage you to give it a try and gain a better understanding of your symptoms.
The AMS survey, also known as the Ageing Male Symptom survey, is used to assess men with low testosterone or late-onset hypogonadism (LOH). Its comprehensive nature makes it an invaluable tool for identifying symptoms related to physical, mental, and sexual parameters.
The AMS survey is a validated and reliable screening tool for late-onset hypogonadism. However, it is only one tool in our toolbox, as reliable blood tests are needed for a full diagnosis of low testosterone. The AMS survey serves as an early detection method that can potentially lead to treatment for low testosterone, thereby improving overall well-being and health.
The advantages of this survey include gaining insights into potential symptoms, broken down into sexual, physical, and mental subsections. It can also help us understand whether your current treatment is improving your symptoms or if adjustments or further evaluation are needed. The AMS survey facilitates informed discussions with your Balance My Hormones doctor. We prioritise confidentiality and have implemented privacy measures to encrypt participant data. This survey is an essential step toward understanding and optimising your hormonal health.
The survey is accessible below on our website, and you can also receive it via an email link. There is no time limit to complete the survey, but we recommend doing so in one sitting and answering honestly, accurately, and completely to obtain the most reliable results.
At Balance My Hormones, we appreciate your interest in assessing your hormonal health and taking the first steps toward achieving optimal hormone balance. The negative impact of low testosterone and testosterone deficiency is significant and can affect your overall health. While not all doctors in the UK have embraced the idea of monitoring or measuring testosterone levels, let alone treating men with late-onset hypogonadism, we are hopeful that they will recognize the pioneering efforts of Balance My Hormones in raising awareness and addressing this condition in a scientific manner.
As a survey participant, we encourage you to take action based on your survey results, such as contacting us at Balance My Hormones with any questions you may have or booking an appointment for a blood test.
Balance My Hormones helps customers restore their hormones to optimal levels through bespoke TRT and HRT treatment plans. We use modern American treatment methods and have over 25 years of experience in hormonal health which is backed up by our very own GPhC pharmacy.
