Answer

A study by Livingston et al found that among men whose testosterone levels were checked in primary health-care exams, potential hypogonadism was found in a significant minority. The investigators reported a total testosterone level of under 10 nmol/L in 1924 out of 8788 men (21.9%) in whom testosterone results were determined. [9]
