Don't blame me

So, apparently I have a syndrome, and "Hey, kid, get off my lawn!" is but a symptom:

ARE you a grumpy old man? Don't worry, it could be a medical condition.

Many men get irritable, pack on the kilos and suffer from reduced sex drive as they get older, but Sydney sex health doctor Michael Lowy said this could be a sign of a condition called androgen deficiency.

"Low testosterone can be part of 'grumpy old male syndrome' where older men they lose muscle tone, they can be depressed, don't feel so good," Dr Lowy said. "We tend to miss [these symptoms] because we just say to them, 'you're old'."

Gotta be a class-action lawsuit in there somewhere.
