In brief: Yes
First, different labs test for testosterone differently, so it's imperative to check the reference range for your lab & to use the same one time after time.
Second, if you're not taking t, then be sure to check in early am (levels vary thruout day). Third, if you're taking t, check same day relative to injection or application. Finally, think of result as a grade. Not everyone is satisfied w/c+.

In brief: Metabolic baseline
The range of testosterone is 200-1100.
Optimally men do great at 800 but how one feels at different levels is probably due to what their naturally highest levels were reached on their own in the 20's. Some men have naturally very high levels and some have always been lower, so when men replace testosterone, they can feel different due to their baseline being different.
