Menopause And High Testosterone Levels

I just had a saliva test done for bioidentical hormone replacement.
My pharmacist told me I have high testosterone levels. Normal is 8-20,
mine is 29. I am 52 years old. I do not have any signs of high testesterone levels such as facial hair, low voice, etc.
What could be causing the high levels? Could there be a health issue
that needs attention?

You may have something called PCOS as i do. I do however have excess hair and lost my breasts but dont have a deep voice etc. Unfortunatlt ive gone through this all and am only 21! Have your doctor have a chat with you about it is the best way.
Some women do have a higher level than others but its usually a sighn of something else. Herbal supplements can help also.
