What are typical testosterone levels in men?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)

Below are standard testosterone levels for men of various age groups. Part of the challenge is that if you want to feel 30 when you are 50, you would theoretically want to get your testosterone level to that of a 30-year-old, but most practitioners would rather get you to where your age predicts. Nevertheless, if you feel like sludge, then some doctors will treat you even if your levels are in the low normal range for your age.

Here are the typical ranges for men:

  • Age: 20-40 testosterone level: 400-1,080
  • Age: 40-50 testosterone level: 350-890
  • Age: 50-60 testosterone level: 250-750
  • Age: 70 or above testosterone level: 250-650
