Is It True That Low Body Fat Leads To Low Testosterone?

Not quite right.
People who are too thin (think anorexic) will often have lower testosterone, but that's from starving.
You don't sound that way.
For comparison, I'm 1" shorter than you and 13 lbs. lighter.
I've had my testosterone checked and it's above normal for my age.
I'm also pretty cut and have 12-13% body fat.
I would think that having a well-built body with really cut muscles would indicate that you've got plenty of testosterone.
You might have something else going on.

You shouldnt... body fat storage is a result of etragen, the female hormone, though it is in males too. Maybe try working out more. Im also 19, 5'11 and 175 with an extremely muscular body. And ive never had that problem other than from something else causeing it like a UTI
