Total Testosterone
 
Just recieved blood test results stating my total testosterone levels at 10 nmol/l and my DHEAS at 6.4 umol/L. I am a 20 yo male who has been natural bodybuilding for about 1 year. Do these levels seem okay or should i consult a doc again. Test was done at 2 pm. I heard time of day can affect levels.

It's not accurate. Time of day significantly affects results. To get an accurate reading, have your blood drawn at around 8-9am. Because the test was done at 2pm, it doesn't really have any significance.

does that work for people who work third shift too?

Yep!

thanks for all the replies guys..one thing i did not consider was that for the two days prior to the test i had been very sick with a stomach bug..vomitting diarrhea and not eating for 2 days..no gym..and really jus sitting in bed..barely had any water in me aswell..im sure this could affect me somehow..is this right?

Yes. Stress lowers T levels.
