Thanks for posting your query.
Hormonal imbalance in men over 50 years of age usually involve a decreased growth hormone levels, decreased testosterone levels, decreased thyroid hormone levels and a decrease in melatonin. All these hormones account for the signs of ageing in men.
The tests needed include-
1. Serum testosterone levels.
2. Serum T3, T4 and TSH.
3. Serum cortisol levels.
4. Serum PSA levels.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
