Dosage of Androgel
Oct 28, 2008

What Dosage of Androgel is needed for Muscle Growth and/or fat loss?

Response from Mr. Vergel

The ACTG studied the regular dose of 5 grams a day and found that many patients lost 1 inch of fat under the skin around their waist after 6 months. But this product should only be used if your blood testosterone is low. Do not use it if it isn't since that will disrupt your own body's hormone balance and you may suffer from depression induced by hypogonadism if you stop using the product.
