Testosterone is the male reproductive hormone. Both men and women produce testosterone, although men produce it in much higher concentrations. In men, testosterone is produced in the testes and adrenal glands, under the influence of hormones (LH and FSH) from the brain. In women, testosterone is also produced in the adrenal glands and ovaries. The production of testosterone requires cholesterol, among other things. Testosterone causes hair and muscle mass development in both men and women.
Normal testosterone levels
Normal values for testosterone vary from laboratory to laboratory. Of course, values also differ greatly between men and women, with much higher concentrations being normal for men. Testosterone levels vary from person to person but in general a testosterone level between 12 and 35 nmol/l is considered normal and for women between 0.5 and 3 nmol/l.
In men, a change in physique, decreased muscle mass, increase in body fat and decreased libido can be symptoms of low testosterone. In addition, problems with erection, subfertility, fatigue, mood swings or depression and breast development may also indicate this.
Women can also experience abnormal testosterone levels. Excessive testosterone production in women is associated with polycystic ovarian syndrome. For more information on PCOS, you can read our page on female sex hormones.
Both too low a testosterone concentration and too high a testosterone concentration can cause health problems. Sometimes they indicate an underlying condition. Therefore, it is wise to measure your testosterone from time to time through a blood test.
Too low a testosterone concentration is called hypogonadism. The cause can be divided into two categories:
In addition, obesity and diabetes can both lead to testosterone deficiency. In fact, diabetes and obesity stimulate estrogen production. This inhibits the stimulation from the brain to make testosterone.
