    Low Free testosterone

    Hey everyone. First post. I am 35 year old male. I have recently been diagnosed with low " FREE" testosterone. But my total testosterone is in the low/normal range. Any idea what could be the cause. Getting my lh and fsh readings tomorrow. Thanks for the help.

    No idea.

    But I just wanted to add to make sure the doctor isnt just throwing your total T results into the 200-950 bs range. Make sure your doc knows what the avg is for your age.

    Low T levels are typically caused by phalates and xenoestrogens if no other pathology exists.

    Ignore any claims that your hormone levels should be adjusted to the a average for your age. You wouldn't do this any more than you would correct your vision to an age adjusted average.

    Ignore free testosterone. It fluctuates far too much to be a useful diagnostic tool. Use total testosterone and shbg. Your optimal level is based on the minimum that dosage that ameliorates your symptoms.

    The optimal level for most men that are not active, weigh about 155 and are 5'8" are:

    Total T 700 ng/dl
    Shbg 25-30 pmol/l (higher levels indicate lower avail testosterone)

    If you are larger, taller or lead an active lifestyle then you may need higher levels.
