In my case gel was poorly absorbed and a relatively large amount went to DHT; going to injections made of big difference.T goes up roughly +6-6.5 points with 50mg testogel, reference range 9-30.
Ideally you'd measure DHT while using Testogel, then find the dose of cypionate or enanthate that raises T to the same level, then measure DHT to see if it's the same or lower. But this is complicated, so why not just use Testogel with hCG and evaluate the experience? It would still be good to check DHT to be sure it's not excessive. You don't need hair loss or prostate issues down the road.
