Sleep and Testosterone Levels


#1

My total testosterone is at 927.1 ng/dl (natural) after 6 hours of sleep. I took the test at 8:45 and woke up around 7:00 A.M. What do you think would be a good estimate of my levels if I had 8 hours of sleep? Is 8 full hours of sleep ideal to maximize testosterone levels?


#2

The only way to find an estimate would be to get exactly 8 hours sleep and take another test. You can’t really calculate these things unfortunately as it is person dependant.
