I got some bloodwork back from the lab the other day. My test was was 657 ng/dl and my gh was 702 ng/dl. I know these levels are high especially for my age but does any have any data as to what is low/high for certain age/races etc. ?
William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.
Usually Test is measured on a scale of 300-1200 ng/dl....for a 20-60 male (some labs use a different scale., your results should show the scale) The time of day that the test was taken can make a difference.
You are right in the middle of the range....that is not really that high
I disagree, DP. while the scale does range that broadly, have you looked at the %'s of males tested and where 650 falls in the grand sceme of things? The majority of males are in the 400-550 range. 650 was in the top 20% or so.
My stats were from 18-30yr olds so not too far off. then again, the endocrinologist could've been trying to make me feel better LOL ... seriously, you're exactly right about the time of day (mine varied by as much as 150ng by the difference of 8am to 11am w/ everything else constant), but diet is a big factor as well. Go crazy on empty carbs the day b4 and your test drops like a mother fuqqer. you can manipulate the test to get a script

Guess I'm use to College age males and Multi-National athletes I deal with.....most are shooting for 800-1100, and having to watch their epi to test ratios for NCAA ,AAU, IOC, and USOC.purposes.
You're right....kind of out of touch with the general populus.

so, you're saying that they get their T levels tested often? Just wondering cause a T test is tyically around $100
I heard full AS is like $250....NCAA only comes here in August for AS....so the Teams are "ready"....pot, coke and speed is random, I usually see 8-10 athletes the day of the tests. The International athletes don't have is so good......IOC and USOC come when they want...they just changed from "Fill this cup NOW" to a 2 hour notice. Trouble is that some of the individual countries, Sweden being the peskiest.......test their own althletes at random. Given 3-8 days, and staying away from Deca and contamianted products.....most know how to "beat" the tests.
