Cholesterol is required to manufacture testosterone in the body. Does anyone have any info/insight on the correlation/relationship between levels of cholesterol in the body and levels of testosterone?

I had my cholesterol checked recently and it was slightly higher than "optimal", but I think this may be due to the combination of my higher than usual fat diet and higher than usual testerone levels compared to the average sedentary male.

So if someone's cholesterol levels drop really low, is it incorrect to assume the same of their testosterone production?
