What is Testosterone and Endocrine Testing?

Testosterone and endocrine testing are assessments that measure the levels of testosterone in your blood.

While testosterone levels differ from person to person and fluctuate throughout the day, normal levels range from 300 ng/dL to 1,000 ng/dL. The best way to determine your levels is to meet with a healthcare professional. From there, these lab tests can be ordered to analyze the amount of testosterone (sex hormone) produced by your body. When levels are low, it can cause a series of health problems. Board-certified general surgeon Eric G. LeVeen, M.D., F.A.C.S., specializes in men’s health and TRT shockwave therapy and has helped countless male patients in the Palo Alto area who have irregular testosterone levels. To set up an appointment, call Acoustic Therapy Center in Palo Alto, CA.
