Stop the fad ketosis, it gets shbg way high if you’re prone. If your free T is 1% of that shbg you can have what I call a false positive total T. If your LDL is way high your thyroid might be taking a hit.

Sugar up... if your symptoms include ED then drink pomegranate juice.

Strong erections both times
Sorry to go too in depth but if in those occasions things are ok, isn't intercourse also ok? I mean isn't there a strong erection also during intercourse?
Then is a need to get higher libido/desire only?

Yes it’s only the desire that’s missing

I would wish for strong erections without the lust, I kind of like that carelessness.
I guess some would say higher estradiol would raise libido, but I am not sure it is worth raising it if things work ok.

What could be the cause of having Gogh shbg levels?

ketosis, calorie deficits. Insulin and igf1 powerfully inhibit shbg at the liver. Prolactin too but we don’t want that.

as seen in OP with his shbg of 50+. Free T is borderline, free DHT and free E2 can’t be high enough for his libido.

besides dropping strict ketosis, supplements that bind to shbg may or may not help.
