The final AMS score can range from 17 to 85 points. The severity of the symptoms can be defined as: no/little (17–26 points), mild (27–36 points), moderate (37–49 points) and severe (50 points and higher).[1] 


A total score of 27 and higher has been defined as suggestive of androgen deficiency.[2, 3]
