    With normal/high numbers I don't think the levels are the culprit. At 65 you're not going to put on muscle like an 18 year old, what's your diet, workout routine and lifestyle look like?

    This is probably total testosterone and not free T. SHBG level is also high, which binds to testosterone and decreases the amount that's bio-available.

    Testosterone 925 ng/dL High < This is a VERY high number for your age bracket. I highly doubt your bloods are a culprit. But I'm not a doctor.

    THIS... you do NOT want high SHBG because it binds to testosterone and decreases your free (usable) testosterone. I have the same issue. Back in March (I was 56 years old) my Total Testosterone was 762 ng/dl (slightly higher than average), but Free Testosterone was 73.7 pg/ml which is very near the bottom of normal, and it's because my SHBG is high
