These conclusions were based on correlating measured or calculated bioavailable testosterone, using several derived equations, with total testosterone in order to predict hypogonadism in a series of 1,072 men. These findings are in accord with another opinion that suggests that unequivocally low levels of total testosterone, in all probability, indicate hypogonadism [13]. Nevertheless a very large body of opinion would now advocate the use of bioavailable testosterone as the best marker of androgen status [see 14 for references].

Most men feel that with an application in the morning the risk of transfer to others will be less than with an application in the evening. Androgen Replacement with DHT The effects of testosterone are mediated directly as testosterone or after conversion to either DHT or estradiol locally in target tissues. The reduction of testosterone to DHT is an amplification mechanism of the androgenizing effects of testosterone. DHT binds to the same receptor as testosterone but its receptor binding is stronger resulting in a considerably higher biopotency than testosterone itself.
