Is Andractim DHT Gel the same thing as Androgel, Testogel or Testim Gel?
No, Andractim is the world’s only commercially available Dihydrotestosterone gel. Other Testosterone replacement gels contain only Testosterone.
I developed Gynecomastia from using Finasteride (Proscar.) Can DHT help cure my Gynecomastia?
Yes, Andractim DHT Gel is ideal for treating medication-induced Gynecomastia. Finasteride and Proscar treat Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) by blocking DHT. Normally, DHT mitigates and regulates Estrogen in men. When it’s blocked, feminization—including breast development in men—can occur. Andractim restores the healthy Testosterone to Estrogen balance, and gets rid of embarrassing "man boobs."
How long can I store Andractim?
If you store Andractim in a cool, dry place it will retain its potency for up to 5 years.
Is there any risk of accidental exposure for my partner, children and/or pets?
Yes, you must take the necessary precautions to avoid accidental secondary exposure to topical DHT.
- Wash your hands with soap and warm water each time you apply the gel.
- Cover the area where you have applied the gel with clothing once the gel has dried.
- Wash the area where you apply the gel thoroughly with soap and warm water prior to any situation where skin-to-skin contact with another person may occur.
- Children and women should avoid contact with areas of skin where you have applied the gel.
- Always keep out of reach of children and pets.
I’ve heard that DHT contributes to prostate enlargement. Is this true?
In the past, DHT has been blamed for prostate enlargement. More recently however, scientists have been challenging this assumption. New research suggests that high estrogen levels are a cause of benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). Because it cannot be converted to estrogen, DHT could actually be used to treat BPH. Andractim DHT Gel was used for these studies, and a patent has been filed by the researchers.
Will Andractim DHT Gel cause hair loss?
Topical DHT gel may cause hair loss, especially if you have Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) in your family medical history. To mitigate the risk of hair loss, only use DHT on a short term basis—no more than 3 months at a time. Also, use a topical DHT blocking shampoo or other topical DHT blocking formulation on your scalp throughout your DHT treatment.
