In Pakistan, the average male testosterone level, post 2000, is 576 ng/dl.
Testosterone levels in each Pakistani area
- 893 in Peshawar
- 709 in Rawalpindi
- 567 in “South Punjab” (this was the region name mentioned in the study)
- 417 in Karachi
- 369 in Jamshoro
Testosterone levels in Southern Pakistan versus Northern Pakistan
Interestingly, testosterone levels are very high in Peshawar and Rawalpindi, which are both in the northern half of Pakistan. It seems that testosterone has even risen in this area, as there was a 540 ng/dl testosterone result from Peshawar in 1990.
Unfortunately, in Karachi and Jamshoro, both in the southern part of Pakistan, testosterone levels seem to have dropped. Looking at one city, testosterone has dropped from a good high level of 740 ng/dl in Karachi in 1993, to 417 ng/dl in Karachi in 2010-2011.
What’s testosterone like in the rest of the world?
We’re not sure what is making testosterone drop in southern Pakistan, but not in northern Pakistan. However, testosterone has dropped just like this in most parts of the world. The interesting thing is that northern Pakistan appears to be “immune” to whatever is causing this worldwide drop.
