Question about what are “normal” ranges for testosterone.
Male, 28 years old, 170 lbs 15% bf
I got two tests done to check testosterone levels. The first test was taken later in the afternoon, 2-3pm and the 2nd was taken at 9am.
I know that test levels will drop throughout the day but I’m hoping to clarify what is considered “normal” or healthy.
My afternoon Total T was 355 ng/dL range: 250-1100 ng/dL, Free T 52.6 pg/mL range: 35-155 ng/mL.
The morning test, Total T of 536 ng/dL Range; 264-916 ng/dL and Free T 14.3 pg/mL range: 9.3-26.5 pg/mL
My question is, referencing this chart that I’ll add below for total T averages, my morning reading puts me just below the Mean whereas my afternoon reading puts me at the bottom 5%.
Should I be concerned with that afternoon reading putting me in the bottom 5% range?
I would imagine an Endocrinologist is going to send me away with average test levels taken in the morning.
