Testosterone is a hormone produced by the human body. Testosterone spikes during puberty and starts to drop after age 30. Low testosterone is becoming increasingly common. The bottom of a man’s normal total testosterone range is about 250 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). The upper limit is about 1100 ng/dL depending on Labs. A lower-than-normal result can be caused by a number of conditions. Aging does contribute to lower levels. Low testosterone levels often lead to drops in bone density that can cause bones to become fragile, which can make the bones more susceptible to fractures. A reduction in testosterone can lead to an increase in body fat, reduced levels of energy and fatigue.
