Particularly as "transgenders" use hormones to "transition." I would think it would be important to examine this data.

High testosterone also raises the risk of breast and endometrial cancers in women, the study found, and increases the risk developing polycystic ovary syndrome - a hormonal disorder that affects menstruation - by 51%.

My takeaway is ladies should not try to be men.

It's hard to deny the science! There really is a difference between men and women. Women cannot become male inside their bodies. They can shape their body to look like a male, but inside, they are still female. Same goes for men trying to become women. It's scientifically impossible.

You suggest that the women did something to have genetically higher levels ?

I could be in the situation and I wouldn't even know.

You cannot have in the panel persons so atypical, their situation and artificial hormone intakes are a very different case. They would need a separate study. But certainly the findings of this one will be used to present possible secondary effects.
