    Abstract

    Background: Andropause in men can be caused by large waist circumference. The population of Asian countries, including Indonesia, tend to experience an increase of waist circumference. This study is aimed at comparing the occurrence of andropause among men with large and normal waist circumference. Methods: This study is a non-experimental analytic observational study with cross-sectional approach conducted in Jebres in September-October 2014. The subjects were 40 men selected using simple random sampling technique. The data obtained from physical measurements and questionnaire-led interviews were analyzed using multivariate logistic regression test to control confounding factors. Results: Twelve out of 15 men with large waist circumference (> 90 cm) experienced andropause and 16 of 25 men with normal waist circumference (≤ 90 cm) did not experience andropause. On the other hand, 5 of 10 men aged < 50 years experienced andropause and 23 of 30 aged ≥ 50 years men did not experience andropause. Conclusion: After age as a confounding factor is controlled, men with large waist circumference risk experiencing andropause 3.06 times higher than men with normal waist circumference, although in this study the result was not significant (OR = 3.06; CI = 95% 0.59 to 15.95; p = 0.184 ). Keywords: Andropause, Waist Circumference
