Brief Answer:
hi and welcome

Detailed Answer:
You have high lipids because there are other risk factors for it,beside dietary and lifestyle habits. So lipid metabolism is related to genetics too and this is something that you cant change. Of course,diet and body weight are main risk factors and you definitely continue with healthy life bevause without it,these values would be much higher. These are still not criticall values,and you should just have frequent check ups at this point but if it worsen then antilipemics should be started. wish you good health. Regards

Detailed Answer:
at this point there is no need for suplements. testosteron levels fluctuate even daily. this is low level but stil not criticall and this is not sign of adrenal functin disorder especialyl if you dont have any symptoms. I suggest to repeat testosteron test in 2-3 months.
