Free-testosterone test

Testosterone in blood test:

Testosterone remplcement treatmentsDid you know that over 70% of health decisions are based on blood tests? To test and control your testosterone levels, it is essential to carry out an analysis to measure your free-testosterone levels. Blood is usually taken from the inside of the elbow, and blood is stored in a sealed container for further analysis.

You must fast before the analysis to guarantee the accuracy of the test results.

In men, testosterone is produced in the testicles. The hormone LH from the pituitary gland stimulates the Leydig cells in the testicles to produce testosterone.

Normal testosterone levels in men can range:

  • Up until the age of 20: 0.2 – 42.5 pg/ml
  • Ages between 20 to 39: 8.9 – 42.5 pg/ml
  • Ages between 40 to 59: 6.6 – 30.00 pg/ml
  • From the age of 60: 4.9 – 21.6 pg/ml
