Testosterone levels by age

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone levels by age


Avatar f tn The reason I suspect its an issue of testosterone levels is when the symptoms occur, I feel almost feminine. That feeling of feeling like a man just disappears. I heard zinc helps boost testosterone levels so I took it for a while but I was scared I was taking too much so I stopped. I have no insurance and can't afford medical care at the moment so I haven't had my levels checked. This is really bugging me, I'm only 22 and shouldn't feel this way.
Avatar f tn Hello I'm 23 years old, recently got my testosterone levels tested amd it showed up 143 ng/dl (CLIA method- don't know what i means). Can someone please help how serious is my condition? I'm having problems with sex drives, erections, disfunction, ejaculation, hair fall phase for a while, delayed hair growth, couldn't loose fat, how hard i try, problem putting on mass. Thank you in advance.
919239 tn?1269394658 I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to imply that you were playing doctor. I teach statistics, so when I saw "direct correlation," it sounded a little too definitive. Low testosterone can definitely cause depression, and it is something that should be ruled out before beginning treatment. I'm glad that you are having success with the replacement therapy (especially after having no success with the antidepressants). I hope you continue to see improvement. All the best..
Avatar n tn The normal testosterone levels in males vary between 260 -1080 ng/dl/ 8.8 - 36.7 nmol/l. Though these may slightly lower with age, the average values remain more or less the same. Hope this information is helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn DHEA has properties of its own that benefit both men and women. Men maintain their highest levels of this hormone in their early 20s. By age 50 there is a 50% drop in DHEA, and by age 60 a man possesses only one-third the level he had as a young man. Aside from aiding in the production of testosterone and estrogen, DHEA acts as a neurohormone in the brain, protecting it from the effects of excitotoxicity and improving mood. DHEA also improves immune function and reduces abdominal (belly) fat.
Avatar m tn Again, low SHBG and insulin resistance are implied, so that you could be a candidate for type II diabetes, which could affect T levels, so that better to check the blood sugar levels also, especially since you started getting problems of late only.You should also check up your thyroid levels, estrogen, LH, prolactin, and adrenal levels to confirm none of those are responsible for your low T levels.
Avatar m tn Hi Snookion, the only remark I would make is to make sure whoever does your blood test(s) measures bioavailable testosterone rather than total testosterone alone. Total testosterone levels means nothing (it's only helpful in trying to determine why you have low bioavailable testosterone if that's the case). The reason is sex-hormone binding globulin ("SHBG") that binds to testosterone thereby keeping it from peforming any function. SHBG increases as you get older.
Avatar m tn I realize your comment was while ago but im going to answer you anyway, I recently got my testosterone levels checked, it came back around 460 ng/dl, my doctor told me that this was a good level and that all the symptom or low t are just in my head, and then he went on to tell me that when he was my age 20, he was in the 700s, but he dismissed this as him just being incredibly high, but I beg to differ, see the fact is I had a testicle injury a while back and I know before I wrecked my nuts, I w
Avatar n tn The broad range is to cover a larger population base. It is is also expected that with age the T level reduces by about 1% per year after the age of 30 years. Naturally it implies that at any age there will be an acceptable range for the T level and there can not be a fixed value for a given age.
Avatar f tn Hi there, Normal testosterone levels for one person may be different for another. As when you age, your testosterone requirements can change over time. The typical male testosterone level is between 250ng/dl to 850 ng/dl.His testosterone levels are normal you need not worry. Write us again with more queries. Best luck for your wishes!
Avatar m tn 393 Range: 241 - 827 NG/DL ------------Doc said this was normal, but I think he didn't realize I was a 28 year old male and not an 85 year old male. This seems very low to me, as I have always been athletic and in shape up until the last 4 or 5 years!!!!!!!! Here are my latest lab results, but I'm not sure they will help in figuring me out. Results: Reference Range/Units: Glucose 80 Bun 4 L 6-24 mg/dL Creatinine 0.8 .6-1.3 mg/dL Sodium 138 136-145 mmol/L Potassium 3.8 3.5-5.
Avatar m tn 521 (normal between 100something-1000something) but shouldn't it be around 670-700 at my age? Therefore I have 2 questions: 1- Do I have a hyperprolactinemia? If so, is a microadenoma of the pituitary possible? (remember it's been 5 years now) 2- Are such levels of prolactin and testosterone in a 21 year old men responsible for all these symptoms?
Avatar m tn I know that my testosterone is low for my age. I plan on losing excess weight and see what happens from there. I know losing weight will lower my estradiol and raise my testosterone, but how much of a difference will it make? I would be willing to try TRT but I am scared of infertility.
Avatar m tn t know what it was at the time, but I have all the symptoms of low t, and im not going to call it low t, but maybe due to the testicle injury, It might have lowered my testosterone levels some, but granted I still like women and think about sex, but its just not the same definitely not as horny, before the accident I could look at a girls butt and get a erection, now I rarely get boners, unless from physical contact, another horrible thing is my memory is ****, I use to have a Fairley decent mem
Avatar m tn 283 is on the lower end of the spectrum, a spectrum that goes up to 836 and further research by age revealed levels for a 23 year old should be much, much higher? Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn I did inform the Doctor I have been tired lately so he ordered blood work to check hormone levels. Turns out my testosterone level is low. Actually looked at my bloodwork records just prior to tumor removal and all hormone levels were WAY OFF - They have all seemed to come back to normal levels with the exception of my testosterone. My surgeon is referring me to a endocrinologist. Working on making an appointment now.
Avatar f tn Hello~It could be related to hormones, such as peri-menopause, I would see a gyn and ask for some tests to determine what is going on with your estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels. At your age, the hormones start to fluctuate quite often and they can cause very uncomfortable symptoms.
Avatar m tn Men maintain their highest levels of this hormone in their early 20s. By age 50 there is a 50% drop in DHEA, and by age 60 a man possesses only one-third the level he had as a young man. Because DHEA has so many beneficial effects of its own, everyone over age 50 should have a DHEA blood level exam done at some point. If the level is low, you should supplement with 10 mg. of DHEA and get tested again in about three weeks. If it is still low, increase the dose by another 10 mg.
Avatar n tn What is considered a "normal" testosterone level for a healthy 45 year old man? I have been suffering from a variety of symptoms consistent with low testosterone: low sex drive, lack of morning erections, less intensity during ejaculation, less hard erections, irritability, etc.. I had my doctor run blood tests and everything came back normal. Testosterone was 257 on a scale of 241 - 800. Doctor says this is normal and will not consider hormone treatments.
Avatar m tn I have been very healthy and exercise regularly. I had my testosterone levels checked and the results are unclear to me. The results were: Testosterone was 3.0 on a range 1.7-6.3 ng/ml) SHBG was 37 on a range of 13-90 nmol/L Free Testosterone was 56 on a range of 30-140 pg/mL Are these levels on the lower end or normal?. I would like to be on a prescription to be at the upper level for my age.
Avatar m tn Hi Bob at your age your OK for DHEA its a hormone we have in our bodys, so all you will do is boost it up, with this take some Tribulus its a herb,now both of these run along the same lines, boost your testosterone, lift your libido and kick up your energy levels. DHEA your start low 25 mgs a day and work it up to what you think you need, I'm on 75 mgs a day, but please read up about it first it can have the odd funny side effect with the odd person, anything goes wrong you just come off it.
502070 tn?1210204494 Although it’s normal for testosterone levels to drop as men age, low testosterone can cause loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, mood problems, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. If even after treating varicocele symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a urologist and get your testosterone levels estimated. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn Would that drastically effect the levels of testosterone? I read that because of my age my testosterone should be in the upper third quadrant not the lower third quadrant. I also read that probably some of the best results I could expect on Testosterone gel would not be over 500. Am I doomed or can I get my levels where they should be. I also read that men with higher testosterone levels live longer.
Avatar m tn Hi , they should be around 600 for your age, so your a bit low, but some exercise should be the natural way to get them back up, but some weight lifting is the sure way to raise them back up and you would need to keep at, so how would you fill at 45 doing that, I take DHEA its a hormon, but please read up about first before you take it as it can have the odd side effect with the odd person, I take as a wayout of ED, but it works for me, raise our testosterone, kicks up our libido and kicks up ou
