The amount of testosterone a person has in their body varies throughout their lifetime. Though testosterone is primarily known as a male hormone, females also need a certain amount to promote fertility (though most testosterone in females convert into estrogens).
What are normal testosterone levels?
Normal testosterone levels in men range between 300-1,200 ng/dL (nanograms per deciliter). Testosterone levels depend largely on age, genetics and existing medical conditions.
Adult males under 50 years of age with testosterone levels between 230-350 ng/dL and adult males over 50 years of age with testosterone levels between 300-500 ng/dL are typically diagnosed with Low T.
Low testosterone (Low T) is the underproduction or lack of production of testosterone. Common causes of Low T include chronic medical conditions like diabetes, infections, obesity or other hormonal conditions.
Side effects of Low T
While it’s natural for testosterone levels to decline with age, men with low T experience a number of side effects, including:
- Reduced sex drive
- Reduced erectile function
- Loss of body hair
- Less beard growth
- Loss of lean muscle mass
- Fatigue or lack of motivation
- Excess weight
- Mood swings
