Anxiety, cortisol & testosterone level

I had a 16.9 cortisol on ref: 2-19 scale. (Way too high if you ask me!)

My testosterone was: 756 on ref. scale of 200-800.

But I took this random blood test at 3pm (I normally awake about 3pm, but was up much earlier that day to go to this doctor & get this test prescribed for me).

Would this be a morning or pm level for ME? For most this is afternoon, but I sleep from 6am-2-3pm, thus it IS my morning (though on that day I was awake for many hrs more than usual on my normal days when I just about awake @ that hour).

I'm confused as to if this is an accurate reading (& thus way higher than I'd like to see it, if it is in fact more like a HIGH afternoon level of a
"normal" night-time sleeper) or if it is wrong? Thanks.
