SHBG Supplementation/Replacement
« on: March 01, 2021, 03:27:25 pm »
Would it be possible to administer SHBG for us guys struggling to benefit from TRT because we have such low SHBG levels?

FT: 11.82 pg/mL (47-293 pg/mL)
Prolactin: 25.76 ng/mL (3-13 ng/mL)
SHBG: 8.69 nmol/L (10-40 nmol/L)
E2: 25.26 pg/mL (10-40 pg/mL)
DHEA-S: 629.71 mg/dL (280-640 mg/dL)
Cortisol @ 8 A.M.: 23.64 mcg/dL (10-20 mcg/dL)

User "James" is a bit of an expert of low SHBG. He has looked into SHBG supplementation, and at least at the time wasn't sure it was feasible. Be sure to read this entire thread:
https://www.peaktestosterone.com/forum/index.php?topic=12694.0

He discussed trying exogenous SHBG here:

Even though that was 10 years ago, the product is still available, $168 for 100 mcg:
