Hi Linda,

Aha! That explains a lot!

Especially considering that some products have 10% arbsorbability and others less..

I currently have sachets Androgel 50 mg testosterone in 5 g. In my calculations that equates to 1%. Would that be correct?
52. DES-daughter ('67), Lyme's ('98), GAD ('98), Sjogren's ('02), hypothyroid ('04), endometriosis ('14), osteoarthritis ('16), blepharitis ('18), frozen shoulder ('19). Pilocarpine, thyroid meds, 25mg quetiapine, 5% testosterone. Allergies: sodium hydroxide, nickle, methylisothiazolinone, latex

Maria- The 5% I had tried through a compounding pharmacy did not specify what the inactive ingredients were.
Whatever the Androgel contains that's helping you it sounds like it's definitely worth a try- I too have issues with wayward eyelash growth.
Sjogren's (+ RA): positive ANA, RNP, RNP-A, APCA. Severe eye dryness + inflammation, multiple sensitivities and allergic reactions, fatigue. 
ORENCIA, Restasis, Anti-inflammatory diet, Vit. D & C, Ubiquinol 100mg, Omega 3....

Yes, Maria, that would be 1% by weight.
