testosterone levelsHow Do I know my Testosterone levels?

With all this information on testosterone and the benefits of maintaining proper testosterone levels, you might be wondering about the specific testosterone levels you have seen. What is a normal testosterone levels? How much testosterone are you supposed to have, and how do you find out your current level? Well, it’s a tricky question. Part of the problem is that despite years of eff­orts and calls for action, hormone testing is still not universally standardized.

There has been positive movement towards a standard set of testing, but we’re not there yet. The other issue is that many doctors don’t agree on just how much testosterone a person, male or female, should have in their bodies. There is a rough “normal range”, but some doctors seem to play a little fast and loose with the low and high ends of the range.

Many doctors and labs don’t take into account factors like age and physical condition, and it means that you might have to do some research on your own or see a specialist to really understand your testosterone situation.

testosterone levelsFlaws in the Accepted Blood Testing System

LabCorp uses a Total Testosterone range of 348 – 1197 ng/dl (nanograms per deciliter). According to this reference range, one man with a 355 ng/dl would be considered normal while his neighbor at 345 ng/dl would be considered to have low testosterone and if they were lucky their health insurance would cover Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Also, a neighbour across the street might have a Total Testosterone level of 1150 ng/dl and he would also be considered normal like the man with a 355 ng/dl. Only a few years ago LabCorp and the insurance companies considered 249 the lower end of normal rather than 348.

The biggest problem comes when age is not factored into the analysis and 355 ng/dl is considered normal whether the patient was 20, 40, 60 or 80?! It also does not matter if the patient was obese, super fit, thin, had a pituitary gland issue or exhibited any of the symptoms of low testosterone?!?!

testosterone levelsThis is why having an excellent medical team to assess your blood tests, physical and medical history is critical. We rarely know what our baseline was from age 19 and everyone has their own sweet spot across Testosterone and all of the other hormones.

The fact that reference ranges don’t break patients down by age or health status explains why a 30-year-old man can go to his doctor with all of the symptoms of low T, only to be told that his T levels are fine because they’re within the “normal” range. If you’re 30 (or even 50), but have the same testosterone level as an 80-year-old, diabetic man, your doc may say you’re okay, but you’re still not going to feel good. Plain and simple.

Reference Ranges for Testosterone Levels in Men

So, in the interests helping you with of self-directed research, here are average testosterone levels for men up to age 54. The figure to pay attention to here is “Mean Total Test”, which is the average level for men of that age. This data is taken from a 1996 study involving hundreds of participants.

If you have your testosterone levels tested and your levels are approximately at the mean level for your age, then you probably don’t su­ffer from low testosterone.

Optimal Testosterone Levels

testosterone levelsOf course, just because you’re not suffering from medically low testosterone doesn’t mean you wouldn’t benefit from more. Those numbers are the average levels only, not the best levels. Research hasn’t determined a hard and fast rule for the optimal levels of testosterone. Some men are fine at the low end of the normal range, while others need to be at the very top to feel their best. What’s normal and what’s optimal?

Anecdotal evidence shows that many men start to feel the effects of low testosterone at the 500 ng/dl mark. Although this shouldn’t be taken as gospel, it does seem that staying above 500 ng/dl is a good idea for most men.

Overly high levels of testosterone typically aren’t something people need to worry about. Although there are detrimental effects to having too much testosterone, such as thick blood and sleep apnea, excess testosterone isn’t a common condition. To be sure, it’s highly unlikely that anyone would reach those levels by following the natural and food-based advice listed here.

increase-testosteroneA host of human hormone research studies have demonstrated that, in order to improve health and naturally increase testosterone levels, it must go hand-in-hand.

The hard part of sifting through all of that complex research is that it’s often difficult to tell the cart from the horse. Health and Testosterone are so closely linked in men that it’s hard to see when low T causes poor health, or when poor health causes low T.

Do we become healthier when we naturally increase testosterone levels, or by making positive lifestyle changes, do our bodies naturally increase testosterone levels? One thing that is clear, though, is that by taking manageable steps to naturally increase your testosterone, you’re putting yourself into a Win/Win situation. These lifestyle choices are just good health advice, and they also increase your T. We have also seen a scientific study of 83,000 US veterans over a 15 year period assessing the benefits of Testosterone Therapy.

This study showed that US veterans with low testosterone, supplemented under Physician guidance back to normal levels have lower incidence of heart attack, stroke, prostate cancer and mortality.

Top 7 Reasons to Naturally Increase Testosterone Levels

Here are our Top Seven reasons to naturally increase testosterone levels that will undoubtedly make you a much happier and healthier Man (increasing testosterone does help with all of the symptoms and issues caused by Low T):

increase-testosterone3Increase Muscle Mass and Overall Strength

There is no doubt that an increase in testosterone will positively impact your entire muscular system by increasing crucial muscle protein synthesis that contributes directly to muscular growth. An upgrade for your muscular system, at any and every age, will naturally lead to a healthier, more confident and capable you.

 

increase-testosterone4Increase Overall Heart Health

The heart is the single most important muscle in your body. An increase in testosterone will not, by itself, lead to the prevention of cardiovascular disease, but the direct benefits derived from naturally increasing your Testosterone level will lead directly to more sustainable cardiovascular health if your physician monitors and manages the patients red blood cell count and hematocrit levels.

 

increase-testosterone5Decrease Your Body Fat Percentage

Every medical study has proven that men su­ffering from obesity have a consistently lower-than-average testosterone level (and coinciding above-average estrogen levels) and there are clear reasons for this. When our testosterone levels decrease, insulin and glucose regulation decreases accordingly as the body’s natural ability to metabolize fat also declines. Testosterone levels play a crucial role in the body’s insulin and glucose regulation as well as the body’s ability to metabolize fat.

 

increase-testosterone6Fortify Your Skeletal System

As we age, men can suff­er from the debilitating e­ffects of osteoporosis but testosterone is an often overlooked health ingredient that plays a significant factor in overall bone density and strength. Testosterone is a key component in e­ffective bone mineralization and resorption, increasingly important as we age and our bones tend to lose a degree of density.

 

increase-testosterone7Reignite the Libido

The hard fact is that the primary function of testosterone is as a vital reproductive hormone. It returns desire as well as sexual function.

 

 

increase-testosterone8Cognitive Ability

Testosterone helps regulate cortisone, which is a stress hormone, and a­ffects the efficiency of our brain’s neurotransmitters. When men suff­er from decreased testosterone levels they lose some ability to eff­ectively regulate cortisol levels, which can cause neurotransmitters malfunction and lapses in memory.

 

 

increase-testosterone9Delay, Decrease or O­ffset Eff­ects of Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s and dementia are most frequent in 65+ men often caused by Andropause. In addition, a healthy testosterone level is a distinct competitive advantage in the game that we call “life”. Feel the way you used to feel and improve your drive, confidence, energy, look, outlook, sexual interest and function while living a healthier life.
