Is it rare for an 18 year old male to have a low testosterone level of 200?

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

Define "rare": Reference range is set up statistically to include ~96% of "normal" population. So anyone w/level below lower limit of normal means that ~98% of population has higher result. Who cares? More important question than whether it's rare is why it's that low. Also why was test ordered? Perhaps this was a lab error? Clarify above & discuss options w/ordering physician. Repeat test? More tests? Fertility. ...Read more

I found out recently that I have low testosterone level. What issues can this create?

Nothing unless. . .: Low testosterone is just a number. We don't treat numbers (aside from blood pressure, cholesterol & glucose). Instead, we treat patients. So if you're tired, fatigued, fat w/o muscle despite diet & exercise, no sex drive w/erectile dysfunction, can't think clearly, and depressed, you might have hypogonadism which might be cured by increasing your t (beware some rx might affect sperm production). ...Read more

I have very low testosterone level and I am only 22. Pleasesuggest me any medicine that can help me increase its level. Also, how much time will it take?

What's the cause?: A 22 yo male should not have a "very low testosterone level." this is highly unusual and is caused by something. You need to see your doctor and determine why this is happening. Once the cause is found, you will have a better idea of how to treat it correctly. Worst thing for you to do right now is to go on testosterone replacement. You will just be masking a symptom and not treating the cause. ...Read more

No.: Nothing whatsoever. For more information, consult a textbook on human physiology. It's really a shame how poorly we educate most Americans about their own bodies.

One dr says biotin causes low testosterone. Other doctor says it increase testosterone level. I am already deficient in testosterone. Confused.

Something's fishy: Hi. Wait. Something's fishy here. You treat hormone deficiency with hormone replacement, not vitamins. Allow me to un-confuse you. Testosterone deficiency is treated with testosterone (insulin deficiency with insulin, thyroid deficiency with thyroid hormone, etc, etc). What you take for vitamins is your own business, but hormone deficiency is treated with hormone replacement. ...Read more

Not related: Presence of a hydrocele does not affect temperature of either testis. There is no reason why it should affect testosterone level.
