What is the desired Progesterone level for a 69 years old MALE?

by Yoav

Hello,

I can see that the desired range for male is <1 ng/ml or <3.18 nmol/L

Is there a minimum or the lower the better?

Specifically mine is: 0.99 nmol/L I'm 69 male, what does the result mean?

Thanks,
Yoav

Hi Yoav Yes that is the range given for men. It’s not something which is checked much in men, so there’s very little info about what an ideal level should be at a particular age. There are hundreds of studies though, covering a multitude of disorders and diseases. It certainly helps with ageing too. The amounts of progesterone used vary hugely, going up to 1200mg/day and more for Traumatic Brain Injury. For cancer even more, see here. Progesterone and testosterone do drop with age, whereas oestrogen increases. Progesterone is affective in reducing oestrogen levels, it’s an aromatase inhibitor. Aromatase is the enzyme which converts testosterone to oestrogen. It appears in some that levels can rise with age, which is the reason testosterone drops, as more is converted to oestrogen. Progesterone gives the appearance it’s increasing testosterone, whereas it’s merely correcting the imbalance. If you’re feeling fine with the level you have, then I wouldn’t worry, but if your testosterone is lower than it should be you could try the progesterone. It’s helped many men with many symptoms, see here, here here, here, here, here and here. Continued below
