Albumin 4.3 g/dl Range: 3.4-5.0 g/dl
Cortisol 15.9 Range: 8.7- 22.4 ug/dl
DHEA 386 Range: 31-701 ng/dl
E2 22.1 Range: 7.6-42.6 pg/ml * this lab is actually healthy
LH 2.7 Range: 1.2-8.6 mIU/ml
Prolactin 7.6 Range: 3.3-26.7 ng/ml * this lab also reflects healthy numbers
SHBG 29.6 Range: 16.5-55.9 nmol/L * certainly not the best numbers but not terrible
Total Test. 343 Range: 348-1197 ng/dl * This is not good
Free Testosterone 11.3 Range: 8.7-25.1 pg/ml * Not much better

Advice will be appreciated!

What were your free testosterone levels? You can't go by Total T alone although it's a valuable lab. It's always good to know what the total serum levels are in the blood which act as a reservoir. Then it comes down to what SHBG and albumin levels are as well as E2 and free testosterone. did you go to more than one doctor? You could have just gone to an asshat. Lots of them out there as I have learned..

Test levels dont look too bad, given you feel ok. Problem is, is too high to get u on trt. But a competent endo, not a regular doc, can get u on trt if you try hard enough.
