Re: Question's about testosterone levels.......

The most important thing you need to do is to discover why you have low testosterone. There are only a few reasons, and none of them are good at 26 (assuming you have never taken steroids). Either you have primary testicle failure which is not good if you want kids, or you have a pituitary problem which might be easy to fix or very serious (as in a brain tumor, which is rare).

Do you have any other symptoms like fatigue, irritable, hair loss, weight gain, dry skin, or vision problems.

Your elevated liver enzymes could be caused by your low testosterone, but more likely is caused by other hormones that are not at their correct levels. Definitely have your doctor do a blood level prolactin, TSH (thyroid), and cortisol.
