trough level
Explanation:
Take a look at the following:

http://www.symposion.com/ijt/hbigda/vancouver/elliot.htm

While serum levels of injectable testosterone can be monitored by trough serum samples (we recommend that serum total testosterone trough level be between 10-15 nmol/L) it is by clinical symptomatology alone for those patients using daily oral medication.


http://www.emedicine.com/med/topic1342.htm

The starting dose for hCG is 1000 IU and FSH 75-150 IU alternate days with dosage adjusted based on trough testosterone level, testicular growth, sperm production, and avoidance of adverse effects.

bottom level


Explanation:
'Spiegel' in this context refers to the level of testosterone measured in a lab test e.g. sugar level = Zuckerspiegel.
'Tal' in this context refers to the amount - not the 'peak' level but the bottom level.

valley level


Explanation:
In the following excerpt, dealing with Saquinavir (an AIDS-suppression agent), "Talspiegel" are the valley levels (measured here is the regression of the AIDS viral charge):
Die Saquinavir-Talspiegel (Cmin), die in der dritten Woche bestimmt wurden, streuten stark. Der Mittelwert lag bei 1.169 ng/ml, der Median bei 388 ng/ml. Eine Regressionsanalyse ergab einen Trend, daß mit Zunahme der Saquinavir-Talspiegel das virologische Ansprechen stieg (Odds Ratio für einen Abfall der Viruslast um mindestens 0,8 log Kopien/ml in Woche 4 = 1,07 pro Cmin-Anstieg um 100 ng/ml, p=0,094).
