    Androgel Blood Results


    Iím on Androgel 10g/day. Application site is both upper legs each morning. Iíve seen no definitive answer regarding how absorption may be affected by using the legs vs. the recommended sites of the arms and shoulders. Regardless, Iím curious how one may interpret my latest blood results. All within normal range, but hoping for higher numbers on T-levels:

    TESTOSTERONE TOTAL 331
    TESTOSTERONE FREE 89.7
    TESTOSTERONE BIOAVAILABLE 180.5
    SHBG 11
    ALBUMIN, SERUM
    DHEA SULFATE 269
    DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE 50
    ESTRADIOL,ULTRASEN,LCMSMS <2

    Some time gel does not suck.

    Poor absorption indicate
    thyroid problem on top of testosterone problem.
    Adrenals are near by.

    Injections are bad, unless done often.

    Often=EOD(EveryOtherDay)

    What tests would you recommend, JanSz, to test for proper thyroid function?

    From many posts on this site, it seems tha HCG + DHEA + injections = chasing numbers with many ups and downs. Whereas gel seems to be the smoothest way for consistent results (at 330 total T, I'm not a perfect case, but hey, I started around 180), E2 seems to remain low.

    What is most responsible for sex drive anyway? Even when I hit peaks of 600+, my interest seemed higher when my total T was 180 BEFORE gel?

    You have drawn blood, how many hours after after last 10grams of Androgel application?
    -------------------

    Based on above results use:

    DHEA pills 50mg/2xday total 100mg/day

    Testosterone cypionate or enanthate 200mg/mL

    T-shot=0.18cc=18units=36mg/EOD=126mg/week
    HCG-shot=250iu

    EOD schedule (EveryOtherDay)
    one day do both (T & TCG shots) nex day free
    do not use any aromatase inhibitors
    do not throw away Androgel, your DHT is low, you may need (latte on) to use (2.5-5)grams on your balls to use DHT

    After 3 months on above schedule do blood test.
    Draw blood on the day of shots, time of shots, before shots.
    If you can do (T & HCG) shots 7-8AM

    These tests (will include also adrenals and thyroid part)
    If you can do blood test, draw blood, at Quest Diagnostics.
    If not possible, I will re-write the test list.

    Lipoprotein (A) Lp(A)
    Ferritin (457X)
    Hemoglobin A1c (496X)
    T3, Total (859X)
    T4, Total (Thyroxine)
    T3, Free
    T4,Free
    T3, Reverse (967X)
    Ultrasensitive TSH
    Thyroid Peroxidase and Thyroglobulin Antibodies (7260X)
    Insuline, serum
    IGF Binding protein-3
    IGF-1
    DHEA Sulfate 402X
    Aldosterone
    ACTH, Plasma
    Cortisol Binding Globulin (Transcortin) (37371X)
    8AM/4PM/10PM---Cortisol, Free and Total, LC/MS/MS (37077X)
    Prolactin - (746X)
    Estradiol, Ultrasensitive, LC/MS/MS (30289X)
    Testosterone, Free, Bio/Total (LC/MS/MS) Code: 14966X
    Dihydrotestosterone (204X)
    -----------------------------------------------

    Your list is a part of list that I keep on my post #44

    better if you could swing the whole list.
    If you have insurance, bottom of that list have ICD-9 codes that make insurance pay.
