Total Testosterone Questions

Two questions:

  1. Does anybody know of any kind of chart or reference showing what the average total testosterone should be for a normal male for any given age group ? Basically something more specific than, say, Quest Diagnostics’ general high/low range.
  2. Does anyone know a formula or conversion of how much exogenous testosterone is needed to increase one’s total testosterone by X amount ? I came across this one on one of the threads but can’t remember where…

Appreciate any help.

I read somewhere the average male makes 7-10mg Test a day, thats 49-70mg a week. If i find something i’ll pop in.

Oscarhs - do you live in a country with 10 day weeks?

These are ranges I grabbed from another post and it is missing some of the ranges but should give a basic idea of what they are looking for as “normal”.

The range for total test is pretty big (it is not measured in mg)

100mg/w of exogenous test will cause suppression of natural test. Can’t say what that would do to your results though.

TT (270-1734)
FT (400-600)
E2 (0-56)
SHBG (13-71)
TSH 0.20-4.50 uIU/ML
FREE T3 2.3-4.2 pg/ml
CHOL < 200 MG/DL
CHOLSTEROL/HDL RATIO 3:1 or 2:1 is good
HDL 40-60 MG/DL
LDL 0-130 MG/DL

Ha, 10mg/day = 100/week. I think this is using the British Inch system mentioned in another thread.

Sometimes typos can be fun…

lol shit, its 8:30am now didn’t sleep hehe :stuck_out_tongue:

edits o_O

At 100mg/week my TT number was in the 500-600 range, at 200mg/week I am in the 1000-1100 range. Of course your mileage may vary…
