My free testosterone level is 8.34ng dl and total testosterone is 442 ng dl

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
Your total testosterone levels are within the normal range whereas your free testosterone (which I presume you wanted to say 8.34 pg/dl rather than ng/dl) is on the lower side.Let me know if you have more questions.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

the report says free testosterone is 8.4 ng/dl

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
In that case your levels are normal as far as I am concerned.What was the normal range, if any, given by the lab?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Even got someone aged 29?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
Yes even for someone your age.
Just wanted to make sure.
What was the normal range given in your lab result?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
9-30.... I think mine should be 20 minimum... Range varies from old people to young..
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
Considering the particular lab range that you mentioned, your levels of free testosterone are definitely on the lower side.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is it treatable? Can they be fixed?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
Yes
Testosterone therapy is available in various forms such as injectable oral, buccal, transdermal skin patches, transdermal creams, gels, and implantable pellets.
Let me know if you have more questions.
