I have a question with regards to workplace drug testing. My employers do random drug tests and have just recently updated their policy to include steroids on the list of banned substances.
The test i belief is a urine sample with initial test and then gamma spec if any drugs detected to confirm. Will elevated testosterone levels be detected in the initial urine dip test?
Also if the sample is sent for gamma spec, will the topping up of my prescription (5 pumps a day) of testogel with testosterone propianate, 20mg per day subcutaneous be differentiated from the markers of testogel? Or will the gamma spec just show Test/epitest ratio elevated ?
That is, would the markers for testogel differ from that of testosterone propianate?
Would 100mg Test prop / week in addition to the testogel push me into supra-physiological doses indicating abuse of prescription if gamma spec performed?
I just need advice on this as i don’t want my employers knowing what is a private medical condition which causes me great anxiety, as they will let it get public to my colleagues.
