Hi captain

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear you're feeling some relief at last. Yes, the level of 4.2 is pretty low and that needs adjusting if possible. I wouldn't worry about the peaking level of 42nmols as it is only a transient level of hormone and will quickly decline over the day. We can see this is the case due to your low level after 24-hours. I'm not sure of the ideal or recommended titration for gels, but it might be worth considering applying half the day's dose twice per day, so the levels don't peak so high and don't drop so low at the end of the 24-hour cycle.

This is something you might want to run by your GP or endocrinology specialist.

Best regards.
Craig

The problem with testing so soon after application is that Testosterone is concentrated in the blood prior to being fully dispersed. That reading is a false high. It is wise to wait at least six hours after application before being tested in order to allow the body to fully absorb the med as Craig suggests.

I hope this helps,

Cheers,

Nick
