First and foremost I want to thank alot of you for the help you’ve given me with HRT. This is a great site and I’m grateful to have found it. So here’s my latest issue. My Dr. started me off on 5g of Androgel back in Dec. I went for bloodwork after 6 weeks and here were the results.
Total Test 268.48 limits = 350-890 ng/dL
Free Test 55.2 limits = 47.0-244.0 pg/mL
After seeing those results he told me to go to 7.5g for 3 weeks and if I felt no better to go to 10g. I ended up not feeling any better increased dosage to 10g. So last week I go to get my bloodwork done and here’s the results.
Total Test 232.47 limits = 350-890 ng/dL
Free Test 44.7 limits = 47.0-244.0 pg/mL
I started taking L-dex somewhere in early Feb. and have been playing with the dosages trying to get rid of some of the fog. Right now I’m on 3 drops/daily. So here’s my questions. On the day I get the bloodtests I haven’t been taking the Androgel. I get blood drawn at 8am. With that being said should I be taking the Androgel before the tests? Is it totally gone out of my system in less than 24 hours? Just confused as to how my levels could be dropping when I’m doubling the dose.
