    So your total T is around the figure of your average (not super-fit) 80-year-old.

    Reasearch like crazy, print out research papers, take them to your doctor. If I was 22 and I wasn't right at the top of the scale I'd be pissed off.

    saw another doctor today and apparently all is fine, seeing that i got the test later on in the day, but does it really have that much effect?

    will go see a endo or get another test in the morn

    Biggie: the total T is the 13.9 nmol/L. Most T is rendered unavailable because it is "bound" to something else, which is why the SHBG figure is important. SHBG = sex hormone binding globulin. So the higher your SHBG is and the lower your free T is, the lower your available T. One way to think of it is T as a PacMan figure, and the SHBG as a segment of the circle that turns the PacMan into a plain circle. The only T available to your body is the T that DOES look like a PacMan. (Corrected!)

    Some doctors think that available T is the more important figure. I don't, but I'm an amateur.

    BTW: it is incredibly hard to find the definitive answer of what is normal T levels for normal 22 year old males, but I can assure you that you're off the bottom of the scale. From all the stuff I've read at 22 you're way down unless you score at least 25.

    And a big warning: mild depression turns into severe depression unless you reverse it. And even slightly mild depression destroys your life, so fix it!

    And my severe depression was fixed by just a low dose of T.

    cheers mate, went to the docs today and i told them that shouldnt my test be higher for my age? he said its all good and if im really worried i should get another test in the morning. i think he was trying to play dumb with me coz i told him i would like to be refered to a endo.. and he was like what is that

    i think ill take another test in the morning and go from there. i just want to be able to feel lively again and get morning wood

    also low shbg is a good thing then?

    yes low shbg is good. The lower shbg means more free test. free test is actually more important than total test.
