Inconsistent Fortesta Blood Tests

I have used Fortesta gel for five years, two pumps per day. Blood test levels fluctuate widely, anywhere between 96 and 1465 (total testosterone) over the period. In the last six months it went from 1465 to 96. Then back up the next time. Is there an issue with the product or do some individuals react differently?

My original test five years ago was 200.

How much would the level change in a week if the product was discontinued?

It is normal for it to fluctuate, based on your activity, your diet, and your own natural hormone levels, and you will never see one regular, consistent number from one check to the next. Most doctors aim for getting you within a certain normal range.

Beyond that, I am sorry to say that I don't really have an answer for you. I have a friend in Canada who has been experiencing the same type of problem, and he's tried several different Testosterone supplement products that his doctor thought they should try. The last time I talked to him, he was also getting high numbers at one check, then very low at the next, and so on.

You can learn more in this Harvard Health Article. You can see from that, there isn't even much agreement on what should be considered normal levels.

Are you on any other medications that may affect your results?
