    How much does Testosterone fluctuate?

    I think my PCP screwed up the first time they did the test because they took my blood in the afternoon and my results were 320's. He referred me to an endo and they redid the test because of the time the blood was drawn. The levels when my blood was taken between 9-10am were 530's. He also ran prolactin, FSH, an LH. They were 5.0ng/ml, 1.0MIU/ml, and 3.6MIU/ml.

    Afternoon T (reference 241-827)
    320's

    Morning T (reference 241-827)
    530's

    Morning Prolactin (reference 2.0-18.0)
    5.0

    Morning FSH [reference (male) 1.6-8.0]
    1.0

    Morning LH [reference (male 18-59) 1.5-9.3]
    3.6

    Does the time of day really make that much of a difference? Maybe I need to switch to morning workouts.

    Standard practice is to take it before 10am afaik. It varies quite a lot through the day, and it seems that the morning reading is the best way to judge levels.

    In terms of when you workout it should have no bearing seeing as recovery will typically take place over >1 day anyway

    Btw your FSH and LH (to an extent) are on the low side. Maybe run some thyroid tests OP.

    I've read bout 30% from morning to night, a doc told me some labs arn't very reliable for hormones, he had mine sent to the Quest "AMD" lab instead of the Quest "MI" lab.

    Would it be more effective to do a morning workout since levels seem to be significantly higher for me in the morning?
