How to interpret the TESTOSTERONE values in blood work results
Does anyone have a short sweet FAQ or expanation on the different kinds of TESTOSTERONE numbers that appear on a bllod work sheet - like TOTAL TEST or FREE or UNBOUND or whatver and what each one really means ?
and range values for low normal high etc and what range of values to expect on cycle.
I had a blood test a long time ago and my TEST value was 380 but I have no idea how to interpet it.

The normal range in males is 270 to 1,070 nanograms
Over 1200 is considered excessively high.
Your total (unenhanced)testosterone level should be 400 nanograms per deciliter, free, or unbound, testosterone 25-30 picograms per milliliter, and estradiol 15-20 ng/dl. No one really knows the ideal level of testosterone, The bound kind converts to estradiol ( estradiol -- the usable form of the so-called "female" hormone estrogen), which can cause problems. It's the unbound kind that's gold.
