    normal test levels?

    can anyone tell me what is the average mg output of testosterone that the body produces on it's OWN?

    is it like 3 mg daily or so??

    if u have any links that would be great too,

    thanks

    I always heard the average body produces about 70mgs of testosterone per week

    10mg's a day is extremely high. 7mg is the top range of normal.

    So taking 400mg of test week is a big jump from the natural levels!!
    HAs anyone done the math, wow!!
    natuarally wk 49
    400 wk would be around 58 mg daily!!!
    This is confusing somewhat to me. I was told doing 200mg of test a week would be 2 to 3 fold increase on the natural. Maybe someone can better explain it!

    Well you have to subtract the ester weight. Between 15-30% of the dose that your injecting is the weight of the ester.

    Yes and a certain portion just breaks down as the ester is releasing it or before the ester releases it. So lets say 150 mg a week injected is roughly equal to your typical 80 mg a week natural production.

    I've never heard of that before. Do you have any evidence to back up what you just said?

    For esters like cypionate /ethnate with high partition coefficients they don't spend much time in the blood stream in an esterfied state. So I'm not sure if they would be broken down at the rate you're suggesting.

    I dont have the email anymore but I had a HRT/TRT doc write me a message to that tune. It basically confirmed what you said about the ester weight itself but along with it, about 3 to 5% simply breaks down before it finds its way out of the muscle you injected it into. So the 150 mg a week test cypionate is roughly equal to 80 mg of natural production. I think this was his basis for starting most of his TRT patients at about 150 mg a week and then do blood tests to see where blood levels are going.
