Free testosterone question

I just got blood tests back, and my free test level was a 9. For some reason, the lab did not do a total testosterone test, even though it was ordered. I have been taking 300mg's of test a week, along with 4ML of synthetine. Is the synthetine lowering my free test, or it is a case of fake testosterone?

No synthetine is not lowering your test. It will not do this. What did your doctor say? you need to see what your overall test level is. Free test is what is not bound by receptors and is available for immediate use by the body. This is governed by receptors in your system. I would venture to guess that your SHBG (sex hormone binding globulan) is high thus gobbling up all your test. Once your lower SHBG your free test should climb. Proviron is pretty good at doing this. Now I could be wrong on this next one but I recall reading that yohimbine will also help free up test.

Thanks for the reply Oldfella. The doctor said to change your "vendor" and we would retest in a month. It is frustrating that a total test was ordered and the lab didn't perform it. I had a feeling that not much could be said on the situation, until we had the total test as well.

What is the unit of measure for the free testosterone score and what is the listed reference range?

That is incorrect. Bound testosterone has nothing to do with receptor binding. Rather it is a measure of the quantity of testosterone that is bound to SHBG and albumin. See here, here, and here.

I would venture to guess that your SHBG (sex hormone binding globulan) is high thus gobbling up all your test. Once your lower SHBG your free test should climb.
You can't make that determination without knowing total testosterone or by actually measuring SHBG itself (which is normally measured in an sex hormone panel).

We should wait for the total testosterone level before forming any conclusions but on the face of it, a free test level of 9 does seem low for someone on 300mg/week of testosterone.

Ok, so here is an update..I decided to give the source another chance and switched vials, and got another blood test. The only supp I was taking is MG's Test booster from TP. Here is the results
SHBG 12
FSH 8.5
Lh 5.2
Prolactin 9.4
Estradiol 26
Testosterone, free and total lc/ms/ms 181
Free Testosterone 46.2


So I can assume that what I got was fake? Before I was on, my total test was 12....?

When you're on "real" gear and do a blood test, there is no question about the bloodwork. My gut says, bunk.
