does genetic matter when its comes t level? for example my father is now 49 year and his don't have any problems. he still have muscle mass and also have strengh and also his smoking god dammit cigarette which is dangerous for testotserone level. if its possible to 49-50 year old man gave good t level without any drugs?

Yep. Sometimes it's the luck of the draw. You could be low and your father could be fine.

Well, you are only half your father. So there's that.

It's something to keep an eye on as you age. I wish I had been aware of this 20 years ago. So much wasted time in the gym for years...
