The high testosterone could be causing the facial hair. Too much male hormone.

Is there a decimal point missing in the TSH? Is it 1.97?

Do you have a ref. range for bun/creat?

A BUN/Creatinine ratio can help your health professional predict which conditions, such as dehydration, may be causing abnormal BUN and Creatinine levels and decreased kidney function.
As for the normal values it depends on the age. For infants younger than 1 year the BUN/Creatinine ratio normally reaches up to 1:30. For anyone older than 12 months it is normal in the range from 1:10 up to 1:20.
High BUN/Creatinine ratios occur with sudden (acute) kidney failure, which may be caused by conditions such as shock or severe dehydration. An obstruction in the urinary tract (such as from a kidney stone) can cause an elevated BUN/Creatinine ratio. A very high BUN/Creatinine ratio may be caused by bleeding in the digestive tract or respiratory tract.
A low BUN/Creatinine ratio may be associated with a diet low in protein, a severe muscle injury called rhabdomyolysis, pregnancy, Cirrhosis, or syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH). SIADH sometimes occurs with lung disease, cancer, diseases of the central nervous system, and the use of certain medications.

I gave you more info in your personal message.

So the TSH is 197- no decimal point? WOW!
I think the link I sent you talks about free vs. total testosterone.

Hopefully someone else here has been through the hormone testing and can give you better advice. I just know what I learn in the lab and don't have personal experience with these tests. It's complicated!
