5α-Androstane-3α, 17β-Diol Glucuronide, Serum (by LabCorp)
I am a man 71yo, 5'9" 160#, since 2003 on testosterone replacement. As years go by, I discover and supplement other steroid hormones. Doing relatively good, recently eliminated thyroid hormone supplementation.
I am in a process of readjusting my Steroid Hormones Panel. Among others I started with DHEAs=25 very low Heavy supplementation indeed resulted in raisin my DHEAs levels but my 5α-Androstane-3α, 17β-Diol Glucuronide, Serum skyrocketed 4.8x over top range =10501/2200=4.8
What do I want more good DHEAs level or lower 5α-Androstane-3α, 17β-Diol Glucuronide, Serum (3α-diol G)
Recent few blood tests are shown on a table Below dates and corresponding protocol.
Googling I see correlation between DHEA supplementation and raise in (3α-diol G) in relation to women. They are getting hairy. As a man i do not really care if that is all that is coming.

Where on chart is located 3---5-androstene-3beta,17beta-diol can't figure it out, pls help
How to explain (3alpha-androstanediol glucuronide) raise in my case. The flow is thru testosterone. I am adding testosterone for years, nothing ever happened to (3alpha-androstanediol glucuronide) it raised only when I supplemented with DHEA.
