I am 25 and had my testosterone levels tested for concern. He did not feel my symptoms were related enough, but gave me a testosterone test and couple others off blood work. He told me my results were normal with a total test of 239. He said the range they uses is 179-756. Everywhere I have read this seems low. Can my total test number be different then others that I have read about for this to be considered "normal"? Would like some insight on this.
Wondering if total testosterone level of 239 is normal?

I am 58 yo male and and was diagnosed and blood work done to find test. level at 200. I was referred to an endocrinologist for treatment. I was told there are two reasons for low test. and in my case replacement test. would be required. My symptoms included lower sex drive, and a bit of depression. I now inject test. cyp. every two weeks and my level is around 550. I feel much better sexually and with some of the depression (feel more alive). The test. reads higher in the morning and for me I go in midway between my inj. to get a truer number. I am not sure what your other symptoms are or which of the two reasons that your test. is a bit low at 239, but maybe a second opinion with a specialist could help. Good luck
