Re: What should be tested for Low Testosterone
If on androgel I would test for total T, estradiol, and DHT. I would also want to know my SHBG level but this could be done once before treatment. If SHBG is high it means you will need total T to be high for the androgel to work. If low then total T does not need to be as high. The goal is to get free T to a level of about 160 pg/ml to begin with. Higher SHBG means you need higher total T to attain this level of free T.
