When application of testosterone was suspended, serum testosterone levels gradually declined over 48–96 h, indicating that some accumulation of testosterone had occurred, and that this treatment mode generates a reservoir of testosterone which protects the patient from a strong decline of serum testosterone when an application of the gel has been forgotten [16]. This contrasts with the testosterone levels attained with the testosterone patch where no evidence of accumulation of testosterone with repeated application was encountered.

Early work suggested marked day-to-day fluctuations in plasma 26 Diver testosterone levels even though samples were collected at the same time each day in different studies [38]. One report [39] concluded from a cohort of 169 men aged 40–80 years with plasma testosterone measured 8 times in 50 weeks that as the level in the initial sample correlated with the mean concentration a single estimate was adequate. This reflected earlier work recommending measuring testosterone on 3 occasions throughout the day in order to establish an overall daily concentration [40].
