    Adrenal gland cyst with hormone imbalances

    Looking for advice and next steps.

    Several hormone tests have shown a low level of testosterone, Most recent
    Total Testosterone 187 (Scale 249 - 836)
    Free Testosterone 21 (scale 32 - 168)

    Further a saliva test for Cortisol showed:
    7am 4 (normal scale 7 - 10)
    11am 2 (normal scale 4 - 6.5)
    5pm 2 (normal scale 2 - 4.5)
    9pm 1.8 (normal scale .5 - 2.5)

    Recent MRI showed a simple 2 CM left adrenal cyst (notes said: no solid component).

    I'm VERY low on energy (but the hydrocortisone replacement helps), mood is variable and sex-drive is non-existent. Otherwise health is OK.

    Is it possible that the cyst is messing up my adrenal glands and hormone production? What other tests should be run to determine the root cause and issue(s)?
