Lab Results: DHEA Low, Free Test Slightly Low, But Total Test High

I got the most expensive blood test you can do from WellnessFX which pretty much tested a whole array of things.

I am 23 years old. I have had whacky sex drive, sometimes to where I'm super horny and other times to where I'm not interested in sex at all.

Anyways, these were my results:

Total Testosterone: 740 (looks good)

Free Testosterone: 98.9 (on the lower end of the spectrum of 46-224)

DHEA: 200 (In the high risk category, supposed to be 211-493)

Other Results:

Sex Hormone Binding Globulin: 49 (high on the spectrum of 10-51 - this hormone binds to sex hormones and renders them inactive)

Insulin-Like Growth Factor I: 257 (Right in the good range of 117-330)

Estradiol: 32 (high range on normal of 12-39, so high estrogen!)

Only other thing is my total cholesterol and bad cholesterol is high, although my ratio of good to bad cholesterol is perfect. I also have slightly low magnesium in my cells (I supplement with magnesium every night- helps me sleep).

Any ideas on this? Is this normal, or should my free testosterone be higher?

How would I decrease the Sex Hormone Binding Globulin?
