How to increase testosterone level naturally?

Exercise & lose fat: First, let's clear a common misconception that's used to separate you from your money. There is no dietary supplement that will naturally & safely increase testosterone. In other words, there are no testosterone boosters, at least not in the States. Maybe in India but not here. Instead, get rid of fat that converts T into female hormone. Check out http://goo.

What testosterone level is best to attract women?

Any level is fine: Women aren't attracted by testosterone level. Nor can they necessarily tell what yours is just by looking at you. Different women look for different things in their partners/friends/mates. Some look for different physical attributes. Others look for non-physical attributes. None of these necessarily correlate w/testosterone so any level should be fine as long as you're reasonably groomed & confide. ...Read more

How can I naturally increase my testosterone level?

How can I naturally increase my testosterone level?

Hard work!: Seriously! Strenuous intense exercise can increase testosterone. Shedding body fat via exercise does this since fat converts testosterone into Estradiol (female hormone) which then shuts down testosterone production. So less body fat allows for more t production. Of course, this is a bit of the chicken & egg conundrum. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my testosterone level is 2.65?

R u a man or mouse?: Sorry, I couldn't resist. Truth is that interpreting testosterone result depends upon age, gender & even time of day. We also need to know reference range including units (ng/dL vs nmol/L) which varies w/lab. So it's really impossible to answer your question w/so many variables to consider. Finally, we treat patients, not just numbers. Just b/c T=2.65 doesn't require TRT if asymptomatic. ...Read more

Are there natural ways to lower my testosterone level?

Get fat & diabetes: Sorry, not trying to be flippant but it's a bit of a chicken & egg question. Regardless of sex, we've linked obesity to lower t. Diabetes is also linked to low t. Recent study showed that exercising & eating right led to weight loss & boost in t. So if you want to naturally lower yours, do the opposite. But as far as taking a supplement, I'm not aware of any, although some prescription meds help. ...Read more

My testosterone level is 619 ng/dl. Is that really low?

My testosterone level is 619 ng/dl. Is that really low?

Look on lab sheet: Ask your doc for original lab result sheet which includes not only your result but also the normal reference range for your specific test & lab (there are several ways to measure T). In actuality, It's very doubtful that 619ng/dL is very low as most labs' normal ranges from 250-1, 100. Best to discuss your results w/your family doc. More importantly, why did you get test in first place? ...Read more

What to think if I have a testosterone level of 6, 4 nmol/L?

Very low: Hi. That's a very low testosterone. Did you go through a normal puberty then lose function, or did normal puberty never occur? Do you or did you take anabolic steroids? Many things are possible to explain this. You should see an endocrinologist for an evaluation. I believe your country is civilized and has nationalized healthcare, so it should be possible to get a top notch evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

What happens if our testosterone level rise to 50 times what will happen?

Greater side effect: Assuming that one artificially raises one's testosterone level to 50x previous or even 50x upper limit of normal, risk for side effects increases dramatically, such as change in mood for worse, oily skin, acne, male breast (gynecomastia), prostate enlargement etc. Worse, blood pressure increases, HDL (good) cholesterol drops & blood gets too thick, increasing risk for stroke, heart attack & death. ...Read more

I was wondering is a testosterone level of 149 low for a 41 year old male?

Yes: Hi. Yes it's low, but obviously your doctor ordered testosterone for a reason. Why don't you talk with your doc instead of asking on the internet? I bet your doctor wants to either determine why it's low, or refer you for help. There's NO SUBSTITUTE for an in person history, physical, diagnostic tests, and treatment plan. My humble opinion is you should talk with the doc who ordered the test. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my testosterone level is 619 ng/dl. How low is that?

Normal, not low: When given test results, always ask for normal reference range so that you can interpret for yourself how (ab)normal your result is. Without said reference, we can only guess as to how (ab)normal your result is. However, total testosterone of 619ng/dL is typically considered well into the normal range w/lower limit of normal 200-250ng/dL and upper limit usually 800-1, 000ng/dL. Also check Free T. ...Read more

I have a testosterone level of 23.4mmd/l, what does mmd/l stand for? Many thanx

No such units: Hi. Something is wrong there. Testosterone units are ng/dl in America and nmol/l in SI units. There is no such unit as mmd/l. Get a copy of the original lab report; it will have the correct units. In the UK, you use SI units, so I suspect it's nmol/l, nanomoles per liter. ...Read more

Found out my testosterone level is 206. Should I be scared? 41 year old male.

Draw also needs to include other hormonal levels to evaluate pituitary function. Your doctor should be able to help you, or see an endocrinologist. X-rays may be indicated if levels suggest it. ...Read more

Is a testosterone level of 253 bad for a guy? If so, what can we do to naturally raise it?

No: Low testosterone can be caused by many things, including pain medications, obesity, illness and sleep disturbances. Testosterone needs to be drawn at 8am (when it is at it's highest level) and be low on 2 separate occasions. A free testosterone can also be helpful to check, which is the active testosterone in your body. Losing weight, treatment for sleep apnea, and avoiding opiods & steroids help. ...Read more

If I don't exercise at all and lie down on bed most of the day will it lower my testosterone level?
