Hello from JA
Conventional doctors for the most part are still not doing a lot of bio-identical hormone therapy.
The fact is that if your testosterone is very low you won't be able to raise it enough by taking DHEA.
Androgel is very typically used in a physiologic dose.
Another approach is to use multiple means to stimulate DHEA to raise naturally, see where this takes the testosterone, and supplement based on measurement.
DHEA should be used with caution in anyone who might have prostate cancer
, as should androgel.
The essence of bio-identical hormone therapy is that it is complex and clinical, and not very standardized. You therefor need a practitioner who is experienced in this, preferably an MD or DO to help you, as levels will have to be monitored.
As it stands in relation to your questions, the fastest and most efficient way to raise testosterone is androgel, but minimize risk by using a professional
