Normal values may vary from lab to lab depending on what reference range they use. Your doctor will have your test results in one to two days. Depending on the country, ranges are in nanograms per deciliter (usually in the United States) or nanomoles per liter (Europe and other countries). The conversion factor is:

Testosterone in ng/dL × 0.035 = Testosterone in nanomoles per liter

Total Testosterone for Males
7 months to 9 yearsLess than 30 ng/dL (< 1.04 nmol/L)
10–13 years1–619 ng/dL (0.04–21.48 nmol/L)
14–15 years100–540 ng/dL (3.47–18.74 nmol/L)
16–19 years200–970 ng/dL (6.94–33.66 nmol/L)
20–39 years270–1,080 ng/dL (9.00–37.48 nmol/L)
40–59 years350–890 ng/dL (12.15–30.88 nmol/ L)
60 years and older350–720 ng/dL (12.15–24.98 nmol/L)
Reference Intervals for Free Testosterone (free is about 2-4 percent of total)
20–29 years old9.3–26.5 picograms/mililiter (pg/mL)
30–39 years old8.7–25.1 pg/mL
40–49 years old6.8–21.5 pg/mL
50–59 years old7.2–24.0 pg/mL

Many doctors treat men who have under 350 ng/dL of total testosterone and who present with most of the symptoms listed by the ADAM questionnaire.
