The ideal testosterone levels for men can vary depending on the specific age group. Testosterone levels naturally decline with age, so what might be considered normal for an older man would be low for a younger man. Additionally, different laboratories may have significant variations in their reference ranges. However, as a general guideline, here are the typical testosterone levels for men:

  1. Total Testosterone:

    • Adult men (ages 19 and older): Normal range is typically between 300 and 1,000 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).

  1. Free Testosterone:

    • Adult men (ages 19 and older): Normal range is typically between 9 and 30 picograms per milliliter (pg/mL).

It's important to note that testosterone levels can fluctuate throughout the day, with the highest levels usually in the morning. If you suspect you have low testosterone levels or are experiencing symptoms related to low testosterone, such as fatigue, low motivation, reduced sex drive, or mood changes, contact us at to schedule you consultation with Ben, NP.
