I had my testorone levels checked. My dr said it is low but overall it is good I am confused by this. On the paper it looked like 2 different ranges one range low the other rang good..

Would I need to be treated in this case? He said he would have to check with another dr. It was out of his field. Any reply would be great!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Usually, a test for total testosterone is used for diagnosis of clinical disorders. The total testosterone test measures testosterone that is bound to proteins in the blood (SHBG). If this level is abnormal then a test for free testosterone (available) is done. Based on the results therapy is planned.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
