Men with low shbg leaks more T with urine?
« on: April 05, 2015, 01:46:28 am »
Just read a claim that men with low shbg looks like hyperexcreters when doing a 24 hour urine test because more T leaks out.

If more T leaks out with the urine then it needs to be compensated with more injections to get decent levels but does low shbg have any connection with more leakage in urin?

I think you made the connection already.  Low SHBG means faster metabolism of T, and T mostly is excreted through urine.

Sam detected this in his urine exactly as you say from what I remember. 

Giving low SHBG guys more testosterone never works from what I have seen on here.  And part of the reason, I would guess, is that their free testosterone shoots too high.  Whatever the reason, it can create some nasty psychological and anxiety related symptoms.  Kwn's story is the most extreme of these:

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
