Free testosterone? Or serum? How old ar you? If it is free, then is means your number are quite low. Testosterone decreases with age. When you were a teen, your levels were probably between 1200 - 1600 ng/dcl. At 25 they dropped to around 800 ng/dcl. Once you married, it drops again, and once you have kids it drops again. Normal range is between 400 - 800 ng/dcl of free testosterone for an older guy.
If you do not exercise it will be lower. If you are overweight, the fat actually depresses testosterone and increases estrogen.
See your doctor for a repeat test. There are several good treatments out there to supplement testosterone with your good exercise and weight loss plans.
