I also heard someone say that it can help to lose weight. Is that true?
It's best to apply to clean, dry, intact skin of shoulders and upper arms and/or abdomen (which I personally think is probably the best spot do to the fact that it gets more blood flow). As far as losing weight, that's a myth. It's a steroid and can actually cause weight gain in some cases (which is a rare side effect of AndroGel). I hope this helps! Happy Holidays!
The reason for the shoulders is 1. It's covered by clothing which lowers the risk of exposure to others. 2. You want a place that will slowly release it as opposed to quickly, which would convert it to estrogen.
Androgel will not help you lose weight per say, but raising your testosterone will help in losing weight. Low T levels hinder weight loss, sleeping, and can cause heart issues.
