Testosterone levels in Bangladesh

In Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2015, testosterone was 423 ng/dl.

Is Bangladesh’s average testosterone level lower than the testosterone levels in other places in the world?

Much of the world is having an unusual, unexplained fall in testosterone since about 1980, at least. Bangladesh is unfortunately not spared from this problem. The low levels of testosterone here are pretty similar to those found after the rest of the world’s decrease. Unfortunately we don’t have historical data from Bangladesh to see what testosterone levels used to be here, but the levels would likely have been a lot higher and healthier, since we have data showing other countries in South Asia with higher testosterone in the past than what they have today.
