Hi there!

Normal testosterone levels in men vary between 8.8 - 36.7 nmol/l; and 5.2 mmol/ L would be below the normal range. This may require further evaluation to identify a primary cause and classify the cause of low testosterone i.e. local testicular or central/ pituitary causes. Management would largely be aimed at treatment of primary cause and normalisation of blood levels. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by a urologist and an endocrinologist for an accurate diagnosis and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
