Default 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.

Yes. Stress lowers T levels.
