TOSTRAN GEL 2% (TESTOSTERONE GEL 2%)
The testicles and adrenal glands produce testosterone, a steroid hormone (androgen). Testosterone has multiple functions in men and is produced in high quantities during puberty in both sexes. We offer a home test kit for measuring total testosterone levels. If your level is low, a repeat test is recommended after four weeks, and you should consult with your primary care physician or a specialist about starting treatment. If you have been prescribed treatment for low testosterone and receive regular checkups, you can order additional treatment online.
What exactly is testosterone?
Testosterone is a steroid hormone, also known as androgen, that is primarily produced by the testes in men.
In men, testosterone controls:
The development of body hair and penis during puberty, sex drive and function, voice deepening during puberty, and muscle growth.
Everyone contains testosterone in their system. Women’s ovaries produce testosterone, but their levels are approximately one-tenth those of men.
In both men and women, the adrenal glands are responsible for testosterone production.
The amount of testosterone in the body is strictly regulated. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands assist in regulating the amount of testosterone produced by the testicles.
What is a healthy level of testosterone?
A healthy total testosterone level for non-obese 19-39-year-old men is between 12 and 31 nmol/L. (nanomoles per litre).
The level of testosterone in men decreases at a rate of 1 to 2 percent per year as they age.
In men, testosterone levels are typically highest in the morning and lowest in the late afternoon or evening.
What happens when testosterone levels are low?
If a man’s testosterone level falls and becomes low, he will experience symptoms. The most frequent effects of low testosterone levels are:
sexual dysfunction (erectile dysfunction, loss of morning erections, low sex drive)
weakened muscle mass and power
impaired mental capacity
low morale decreases energy
Other dangers associated with low testosterone levels, even in the absence of symptoms, include:
What happens when a man’s testosterone levels are high?
Symptoms of a high testosterone level in men include:
Reduced testicle size, loss of body hair, decreased sperm count, and breast enlargement are symptoms of hypogonadism.
Other risks associated with elevated testosterone levels in the absence of symptoms include:
Testicular tumours with an abnormally high number of red blood cells have an elevated risk of blood clots.

We provide a blood test for measuring total testosterone levels at home.
Simply follow these steps to complete the procedure quickly and easily:
Order and have your kit delivered to your door, or pick it up at a nearby post office (delivery is free)
A finger-prick test is used to collect a few drops of blood.
Send your samples to our accredited partner laboratory in the United Kingdom (postage is free)
Once your results are available (within two to three days), our physicians will review them.
One of our physicians will contact you via a secure and confidential message in your patient account to inform you of your test results and offer guidance on what to do next.
In some instances, the physician may need to request additional information. Ensure that your telephone number is accurate in your online account, as they may contact you by phone.
You may also request a blood test from your physician. In this instance, a blood sample will be drawn from a vein in your arm for a full blood test.
If your test results indicate that you have low testosterone levels, you will be advised to repeat the test before making any other decisions. If confirmed, you will need to undergo a thorough examination with your doctor to determine the cause and discuss initiating TRT.
How do I increase my testosterone?
There are methods to increase testosterone levels.
High-intensity exercises appear to be the most advantageous.
Exercise can help maintain testosterone levels and, in some cases, increase them if they are deficient.
Evening stress training may have a significant effect.
Reduced alcohol consumption and avoidance of other substances, such as cannabis, can reduce the risk of low testosterone levels.
A balanced diet can help maintain healthy testosterone levels.
Maintaining a healthy weight is associated with low testosterone levels.
If your testosterone levels are low, a specialist may prescribe you testosterone supplements. Your doctor will determine if supplements are the appropriate treatment for you.
You can also receive treatment for the effects of low testosterone, such as erectile dysfunction medications like Viagra.
There are additional supplements that may help to increase your testosterone levels, such as:
vitamin D zinc

Benefits of testosterone gel therapy:
The primary benefit of testosterone gels is that one application per day maintains a stable testosterone level for 24 hours.
Testosterone gel is safe for most men if prescribed by a doctor. These gels are a good option for men with low testosterone levels to improve their quality of life.
Application of testosterone gels:
It is recommended to apply the gel to clean, dry skin at approximately the same time each day (preferably in the morning).
Depending on your treatment, the gel can be applied in a variety of locations (your doctor should give you instructions on this)
Spread the gel gently until it is completely absorbed by the skin, and then cover the area where the gel was applied. Wear loose clothing to prevent the gel from spreading to others.
Important consideration when using testosterone gels:
Testosterone gel may yield positive results in workplace or athletic drug tests
Androgens (such as TRT) should not be used to increase muscle mass unless prescribed by a physician. They should also not be used to enhance fitness or physical activity levels.
Testosterone treatments can reduce the amount of sperm produced by the body. Therefore, if you intend to have children in the future, you should consult your doctor before using testosterone gel.
If you are receiving testosterone treatment and want to test your levels, you should consult your doctor about the optimal time of day to do so, as this can vary depending on the testosterone treatment you are receiving.
