Androgel - Problem Child...
« on: January 11, 2013, 05:00:58 pm »
Well, I tried to give a relatively balanced coverage of Androgel in spite of all of its problems:

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

One has to wonder why that's seems to be the standard treatment when it really just doesn't seem to work at all... Why not just go with injections or pellets since they have such a high success rate and are seemingly easier? Androgel just seems pointless to me in that light

Topicals are very convenient.  It just take a few minutes in the morning to apply.  So many men think, "I'll try it and, if it works, great." 

Pellets are a good option but are expensive depending on your insurance; painful for some men; and occasionally lead to infections.

Injections generally are done in a doc's office.  We've had a few self-injectors, but usually it's in an office setting. Since they should really be done weekly, this can be a problem for some men.

(Nebido may be a good option for some men in other countries.  Don't see it much in the U.S. yet.)

I started three years ago at T-130. It took about 18 months to get me at T-400. Now I'm at T-700 and my mood swings and caring about things or a lot better. This is what I do and it might help, in the morning once I get done with the shower I turn on the hot water only and get my skin red and hot. I think this opens up the pores and gets skin ready to go. Then I dry off real quick and apply to my shoulders or my butt.

I actually put that idea on my page.  I'm not sure about the gluts as a target area, but I guess if it works, it works, eh?

NOTE:  Discuss any application technique changes with your physician first.
