TRT with Type 2 Diabetes

Do type 2 diabetics require a different TRT protocol than those without the disease. More frequent injections, lower test dose? SHBG levels low?

If their SHBG is very low due to insulin resistance I’d suggest dosing more frequently

If you are trying to alleviate side effects, then inject more frequently, otherwise if you feel optimal, continue with your current protocol.

If you recently started TRT and levels are reasonably elevated, give it at least 2-3 months.
