How does a doctor diagnose low testosterone, and what is a healthy level?Low T is measured by a blood test, often done in the morning along with physical exam. Healthy testosterone levels vary by age, and physical condition—for men, the older they get, the lower the number gets. An average used by the National Institutes of Health as normal for men is 300-1,000 nanograms per deciliter.
