Description

Generally,  testosterone in one's blood will attach to two proteins: albumin and SHBG.  There is some testosterone that is not bound to proteins and they are known as free testosterone and albumin-bound testosterone.  This type of testosterone is easily used by your body.  

Free and weakly bound (bioavailable) testosterone is thought to reflect an individual's biologically active, circulating testosterone.
