    At his age trt sounds like a no brainer. Find a doctor who will prescribe it for him. If he doesn't want anymore kids, he doesn't have much to lose.

    He does qualify for HRT no doubt and it will help his diabetes
    He also needs to have estrodial sensitive done as well which could be major player in his insulin resistance as well.

    Where are you located?

    The subject is not simple, even when one is lucky enough and have available knowledgeable doctor.

    If your dad is:
    interested in the subject (because it requires lots of his personal involvement)

    interested in learning nuts an bolts of treatment

    able to arrange for local doctor to write scripts for testing and medications
    able to fund tests and medicines (either via insurance or $$)

    Look at my thread here:

    Jan's BloodTest April13/2007

    Post #44 have a list of initial testing, have him do complete list (between blue lines).
    It is complete script, have him print it out, sign by doc and go to lab for a blood draw.

    Also have him do this tests.
