Had 3 months in hospital fever etc 2 yrs ago. Last weeks tests came back:

Total T: 184ng/dl or 6.4 nmol/l (11.5-32)

SHBG: 11 (15.5-?)

Free Testosterone: 58.2 (15-100)

I am natural. But ever since hospital i have way less energy, concentration, down a lot more.

I am really confused, how can i have normal free T and low SHBG but tanked total T levels???

does having normal free T = i am completely fine?
been feeling not myself the last 2 years, really tired and uninterested. find i can be happy in morning, sad in afternoon, and happy again in night. very odd

Did you get any answer? I am having same issue for 2 years. My numbers are similar to yours. It does not matter how much testosterones they give me, Total testosterone level does not move and estrogen increases. Using aromtaze inhibitors keep the estrogen low but do nothing for total testosterones. Rather it cause fluid retention and high blood pressure.
My other symptoms are similar to yours.
Let me know if you find something. I will keep you posted on it.
