Default Androgel 1.62

Its been awhile since I've posted (probably a good thing) and I've got a few questions. My doc recently decided it would be an amazing idea to switch my from 4 pumps of androgel 1% to to pumps of the androgel 1.62%. Now even if the potency is higher I am still getting less overall T. Will this really matter? It comes out at around 3.24 compared to the previous 4.
My last lab for Testosterone came back around 900 ng/dl in the afternoon. I apply at night and at the time was on 4 pumps. Will this change be of any significance and also, because I'm on HCG as well will this even matter? Sometimes I think I'd be better off switching to hcg and injections.

We have seen better absorption with the new androgel, Guys are getting up into the 1000 range no problem even with adrenal related issues.

2 pumps average is about 400-550
4 pumps 7-1000

around 100 guys have swtiched over, getting them off compounded stuff since androgel has coupons for insurance.
Feel better with FDA regulated drugs, if they are able to absorb.

So say the 2 pumps gets me to about 500, the HCG figured in should get me up around 1,000 at some point?

Depends on your response to HCG. I am finding that people on HCG start to down regulate for some reason after 3-4 months even on 350 ius EOD which started out at 6-700 TT. What about DAA? It may give enough bump to push you into the 600-700 range.

I do 150 IU a day now. I think I'm still sensitive to it.

Every ones requirements are different, Some guys need 150 EOD others may 50 EOD. When using HCG on TRT it is not used to bump T just to keep the LH receptors stimulated and alive. Taking this approach has resulted in less e2 increases as well as getting the benefit of LH through out the body

Shits good. I'll be starting wrestling in about three weeks. Weights up to 180, diets mainly just eat whatever and I'm doing a three day split, lifting everyday. Max bench has gone up to 265, squatting around 390 and just feeling pretty good.
