    compounded Test5% vs Androgel1%


    Forgive my ignorance...

    I was reading over the data sheet on Androgel 1%, and this literature describes 5g, 7.5g and 10g dosing.

    How does this compare to 1ml of 5%? relative - is this basically the same as 5g of 1%? if not, what?

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe it means you get 1% of Testosterone from the 5, 7.5 or 10 gram dose.

    Thanks, but I understand that.

    The 1% is in grams

    the 5% is in milliliters

    Does 5gm of 1% equal 1ml of 5%

    ..or what is the conversion? I'm trying to understand the comparision.

    Androgel is 1% strenght
    Usually people end up using 10 grams
    10grams=10000mg it contains 100mg of testosterone

    Dr John uses 5%gel it is 5x stronger than Androgel
    if you want to apply the same amount of testosterone you need 10/5=2grams of 5% gel

    Usually the stronger the gel the less go thru skin, you may need little more to get same amount of T in to blood.

    I used to use 10gram of Androgel =100mg of test
    Now I use 10% Tcream, I am now trying 2grams of that cream, that is 200mg of test to get the same results as I used to have with Androgel.

    OK, now I understand. The units were getting in the way. I didn't know that 1mL was equal to 1 gram.

    Thanks.
