T Nation

Old Time Magazine Column on Testosterone

This columnist, Joel Stein (I’ve seen him on VH1’s "I Love the 70s, 80s, etc.) writes about testosterone and how he thinks he has little of it. It’s obviously a fluff piece poking fun at his insecurities, rather than a hard news article.

Apparently he got tested, and had a Test level of 302!!! The guy was only 29 when that article was published. I would have never guessed his level to be this low; obviously, he is not a high-T guy, but his T level is that of an 80 year-old man!!! On top of that, his idiot doctor said that was normal!!! This makes me wonder how widespread hypogonadism among younger men. I’ll bet that some actors, like Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, may be suffering from hypogonadism.
