Low Testosterone Level

The normal range of testosterone in men is between 250 ng/dL and 1100 ng/dL. Low levels of testosterone in men causes decreased sex drive, weight gain, depression, fatigue, and less body hair. The levels of testosterone fall as a man ages, but some conditions like AIDS, alcoholism, and liver disease can also cause it.
