According to the "free hormone hypothesis," SHBG modulates the bioactivity of sex steroids by limiting their diffusion into target tissues.
Investigations on testosterone and sex hormone binding globulin levels were carried out using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and concentrations of testosterone and SHBG was interpolated by Spline and Lowess method using the Spline Curve via graph prism version 6.5.

Testosterone, measured by a 1-step chemiluminescent immunoassay (Abbott Architect, second generation testosterone assay) was 16.0 nmol/L (reference interval 4.9-32 nmol/L); his sex hormone--binding globulin (SHBG) [3] was increased at 153 nmol/L (13.5-71.4 nmol/L) as were luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) at 33.4 IU/L (0.6-12.0 IU/L) and 54.7 IU/L (1.0-11.9 IU/L), respectively (Table 1).
Low testosterone is usually defined as a testosterone level below 300 ng/dL However, the authors concluded in their cohort that up to 20% of patients who had a testosterone level of greater than 300 ng/dL were actually hypogonadal if bioavailable testosterone (BT) was calculated using sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG).
