Testosterone

Metabolic Health

A healthy result should fall into the range 298 - 1043 ng/dL, 10.34 - 36.19 nmol/L, or 2.98 - 10.43 ng/mL.

Testosterone is an androgen (male sex hormone) found in both men and women but in significantly larger quantities in men due to the testes. A small amount is made by our pituitary glands, and in women, by the ovaries. In pubescent boys, testosterone causes the voice to deepen, muscles to get bigger, sperm production to begin, and facial/ body hair to grow. Most of the testosterone in the blood is bound to a protein called sex hormone binding globulin, and a small amount floats freely. Typically, testosterone tests either assess the bound testosterone or the free testosterone. A total testosterone test measures both. These tests may be used to help evaluate conditions such as:

            -Decreased sex drive

            -Erectile dysfunction in men

            -Infertility in men and women

            -Delayed or accelerated puberty in boys

            -Male features (deep voice, excessive hairiness) in women

What does it mean if your Testosterone result is too low?

A low testosterone level in men may be due to:

            -Hypothalamic or pituitary disease

-A genetic condition causing decreased testosterone production in young men

-Testicular failure / infertility, which can be genetic (myotonic dystrophy) or due to impairment (alcoholism, physical injury, or the    mumps)

-A chronic disease like diabetes

A low testosterone level in women is normal and healthy.

What does it mean if your Testosterone result is too high?

A high testosterone level in men may indicate:

            -Testicular tumors

            -Adrenal tumors producing testosterone

            -Use of anabolic steroids

            -Early puberty

            -Congenital adrenal hyperplasia affecting the adrenal glands

Increased testosterone in women may be caused by:

            -Ovarian or adrenal gland tumor

            -Polycystic ovary syndrome

            -Congenital adrenal hyperplasia affecting the adrenal glands
