The Difference Between Total Testosterone and Free Testosterone

Total Testosterone vs. Free Testosterone: What You Need to Know

Understanding testosterone levels can be confusing. Here’s a guide to the differences between total and free testosterone

While we tend to think of testosterone in relation to sexual function and muscular development, this hormone actually affects the entire body – in both men and women.

 

Testosterone is produced in the testes, ovaries, adrenal glands, and via precursor hormones; those that the body converts into testosterone.

 

As we age, testosterone levels decrease. However, aging itself isn’t always the culprit. Measuring testosterone levels can help diagnose a variety of maladies, including sexual dysfunction. These measurements assess total and/or free testosterone levels.
