Testosterone Levels

I'm 61 years old with a lower sex drive than my younger years. I'm in overall good health as measured by a variety of metrics and am reasonably fit. My testosterone level is 511 ng/DL and Free testosterone is 53.2 pg/ml. Both are within "normal" ranges. But, my free testosterone percentage is 1.04 and regarded as low compared to the range of 1.5% to 2.2%. Should I care? What if anything does the percentage suggest and how is it relevant?

You could try testosterone gel. Ask your Dr about it since he/she would have to prescribe it.
It can help with your sex drive and energy level. Remar
