It is suggested that bioavailable testosterone represents the fraction of circulating testosterone that readily enters cells and better reflects the bioactivity of testosterone than does the simple measurement of serum total testosterone. Also, varying levels of SHBG can result in inaccurate measurements of bioavailable testosterone. Decreased SHBG levels can be seen in obesity, hypothyroidism , androgen use, and nephritic syndrome (a form of kidney disease ). Increased levels are seen in cirrhosis , hyperthyroidism , and estrogen use. In these situations, measurement of free testosterone may be more useful.
We also provide testosterone gels that are a fairly new form of male hormone treatment used to raise levels of testosterone levels in men suffering from low testosterone levels. Testosterone gels provide balanced testosterone levels to the body via skin. Due to its ease in use and minimal skin irritation, testosterone gel is now the main option for men undergoing testosterone therapy who prefer a topical solution over a hormone shot. Some men find that testosterone gels don't provide enough of a testosterone boost, are concerned about transfer to a family member or lover, or find that gels and creams don't absorb well into their skin.
