Throughout life, testosterone helps maintain muscle and bone mass, sperm production, and sex drive. Many problems can be managed with the use of hormone therapy. This treatment is safe and can be effective for men who are diagnosed with consistently abnormal low testosterone production and symptoms that are associated with this type of androgen (hormone) deficiency.

This treatment is safe and can be effective for men who are diagnosed with consistently abnormal low testosterone production and symptoms that are associated with this type of androgen (hormone) deficiency.

How does testosterone work?

The brain and pituitary gland, a small gland at the base of the brain, control production of testosterone by the testes. From there, testosterone moves through our blood to do its work.

Your testosterone levels change from hour to hour. They tend to be highest in the morning and lowest at night.

Testosterone levels are highest by age 20 to 30 and slowly go down after age 30 to 35.

What can go wrong with testosterone levels?

For many reasons, testosterone can become—and stay—too low. Less often, testosterone levels can become too high. When this hormone is not in balance, health problems can result. Ask your doctor if you should get your testosterone level checked.

Testosterone Facts For Men

  • Low testosterone comes with age — Testosterone or "T" levels naturally decrease by 1% each year after age 30, though don’t severely deplete, even in advanced age

  • T production may be disrupted by disorders of the testicles, pituitary gland, or brain

  • T levels change from hour to hour — highest in the morning; lowest at night

  • T levels can temporarily lower due to too much exercise, poor nutrition, severe illness, and with certain medications

  • Normal T levels should be between 300–1,000 ng/dL (nanograms per deciliter), depending on age and lab used

  • Testosterone must be measured more than once for accurate assessment
