Several things: That testosterone(assuming a total) isn't out of the range of normal, so you need to be mindful about broaching testosterone supplementation. What prompted the checking of your testosterone levels, symptoms? Also realize that testosterone does have it's risks, including reversible male infertility, increased risk of blood clots and possible heart disease risks to name a few.
