What Is Free Testosterone

Free Testosterone

What is free testosterone? Free testosterone is hormone that is not bound to any proteins within the blood; hence, making it “free.” Other testosterone that is not “free” is bound to sex hormone binding globulin proteins in the blood. Low free testosterone has been said to cause sexual problems.

Free testosterone levels can be read in blood tests and can be in normal range, too low or too high. Different clinics will have varying ranges as to what they determine to be “within normal range” for free testosterone levels. If levels are too low, replacement therapy can get them back to where they need to be to make a person look and feel their healthiest.

According to age, here are the averages ranges of what testosterone free levels should look like for men:

  • From 30 to 40 years old:  10.3 pg/mL
  • From 40 to 50 years old:  9.1 pg/mL
  • From 50 to 60 years old:  8.3 pg/mL
  • Over 60 years old:  6.9 pg/mL

According to age, here are the averages ranges of what normal free testosterone should look like for women:

  • From 30 to 40 years old:  6.3 pg/mL
  • From 40 to 50 years old:  5.4 pg/mL
  • From 50 to 60 years old:  4.59 pg/mL
  • Over 60 years old:  3.91 pg/mL

Men will need more testosterone in their bodies than women will, as shown in this breakdown. Here is a very accurate and average free testosterone levels by age chart that most clinics will use to determine if testosterone replacement therapy can be prescribed for a patient. Here you will be able to clearly see the difference of the male and female free testosterone level.

Free Testosterone In Men And Women

Low free testosterone levels are considered to be anything less than the numbers listed here.

High free testosterone levels are considered to be anything greater than the numbers listed here.

For optimal health, a person should have their levels remain consistently in the average range. Fluctuation will happen daily, from morning until night; however, great changes may cause negative symptoms to occur. If levels do get too low, we can help a patient of ours to increase free testosterone so that they can feel great again.
