It would help if you could post your Tests with the units and ranges. Not all men can do gels and doing just 5 grams it can make your levels go lower then base line. Here is my problem with this post how do you stay on this for 3 yrs. being this low and your Dr. not doing something about it. Please don't tell me your Dr. is an Endo.Originally Posted by Get Big or Die
When you go on gels enough can get into the blood to stop the brain from sending LH and FSH to the Testis to make more T. So if your base line level was say 300 and your skin will not let enough gel into the blood but enough for your brain to see it and stop sending messages to the Testis you can go lower then base line. This is why in the insert that comes with Androgel it says to be tested in the first 2 weeks after starting on the gel. You may need to go up to 10grams and the test in 4 weeks if your not into the upper 1/3 of your labs range then you need to do shots.
