Hey guys, I'm new here and looking forward to some answers to some long burning questions I have.
What would you guys do for a guy that is suffering from low SHBG? When I say low, I mean one or two points away from the lowest end of the range (a 12 in the range of 10-60.)
My TT is low and in the 300ng/dl range. My FT is high, because of the SHBG, and is at the highest end of normal! Yet, I experience all the symptoms of hypogonadism. My local doctors all perscribe just testosterone injections, which keep making FT too high.
High Free Testosterone, Low Total Testosterone, Midrange Estrogen
is the only one situation that the LEF guidelines don't address!
Dr. Crisler, what protocol do you put your guys on that have SHBG issues?

I already excercise at least three times per week, and my diet consists of only healthy fats, meals, vegetables and a few rare low GI fruits. I am well aware of how to naturally lower insulin levels.
That's how a NORMAL person lowers insulin levels. Those of us with SHBG issues are do not have bodies that are functioning normally.
Dr. John said in another post that he is using Clomid with patients that have low SHBG issues. I'd like to know a little more about this protocol, specifically.
If It's all insulin related, why are we introducting Clomid?
I'm eagerly awating more silence.

Whoa!! That's quite the news, Dr. John. No more clomid? Can you expound?
Is it possible for you to exound on this? If you are not using clomid then what do you use, if anything? What else can you share?

Estrogen increases SHBG level.
People with low SHBG levels should probably strive to keep their estrogens (all not only E2) as low as reasonable.

Every time I am about to sign on with Dr. John as a patient. He scares me off by not following up on statements or questions.
