    Total T matter if Free is high?

    Like the title says. I know this is kind of a person specific and subjective question: For a sense of wellbeing, does Total Testosterone need to be high alongside a high Free T? Or would a normal Total T and high Free T yield similar results? Basically, I'm wondering if Total testosterone...

    Anyone had bad experiences with LabCorp?

    My doc usually uses Quest and I get my own tests through Quest and DiscountLabs, but my doc recently tried LabCorp because he said they gave him a better deal on a wider variety of tests. Half my results aren’t there and say things like ‘unable to calculate result since non-numeric result...

    My testosterone dropped 50% in 2 months after starting Danazol and Thyroid

After 2 months I got tested again and my total T dropped in half...

    Decrease in Total Testosterone but consistent Free?

    Has anyone ever noticed a significant decline in Total T, but Free T, SHBG and E2 remain the same between blood draws and if so, what was the cause? I know Free T is the metric to be more concerned about, but I am curious as to potential reason for this. Total T dropped from 743 to 401 Free T...

    I think neglected Total Testosterone focusing too much on free T...

    I think I might have found out why I wasn't feeling so good on TRT all these past years... I wasn't optimizing my Total T.. I was focusing too much on my free T which was always in the top 90% or higher of the free range which is great but my Total T was in the bottom Labcorp range (mid...

    Is there a linear relation between muscle growth and testosterone?

    I have had total T levels of 500, 1000 and 1500 at different times on TRT. My free T has ranged over a similar range. I have never seen it discussed, but do you get more muscle growth with each level of higher total T assuming of that if you double total T you also double free T. Double is...

    Initial levels correlate to target TT?

    Gents, A while ago, when first researching my low T problem, I stumbled upon a blog entry from a clinic local to me that has alway stuck in my mind. In the wonderful world of n=1 this rule, as it transpires, does actually apply to me. I’m running 30mg per day that puts me at the upper end of TT...

    Lab measurement unit wrong? FT/TT = 0.14%* possible?

    My total testosterone is 886 ng/dl (900 is the top of the ref range), shbg = 67.67 nmol/l ( 18,30-54,10), albumin = 5.3 g/dL; I also tested my free testosterone and the lab result was 12.0 ng/l (8,30-40,10). If I convert it to ng/dl, that will be 1.2 ng/dl. This means that my FT/TT = 0.14%...
