    Can somebody help me with my questions as I cannot get the straight or correct answer after much google and internet searching.

    I am trying to find out about how testosterone is made from cholesterol and how the levels of LDL and HDL either high or low effect testosterone levels.

    is it simply a case of just having higher total cholesterol to increase testosterone higher, with the levels of the 2 lipoproteins LDL and HDL whatever they may be not important for higher T levels?

    Or is the total cholesterol levels less important, and is it a case of higher LDL or higher HDL levels that increase T levels?

    Is testosterone increased by high LDL or High HDL levels?

    Is low LDL good or bad for testosterone levels?

    I have read probiotics/or just certain strains of probiotics can lower total cholesterol/ and or LDL levels
    Is this true, is it a fact has it ever been proven and if so how much does the level or levels decrease from probiotics?
    I wish to use probiotics for ibs but I do not really want them to lower cholesterol if it will effect my Testosterone levels.

    Thanks anyone for decent helpful educated replies to my questions.
    All the best thank you.
