Our expert says:
Yes the thyroid function has an effect on the sex hormone levels. The high thyroid hormone levels causes low levels of available ("free" or "active") testosterone, although the total testosterone levels may be higher than normal. The rest ("inactive" or "bound") testosterone is bound to a carrier protein in the blood called sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), which increases in hyperthyroidism. It will correct with treatment.
