At What Level Should I Worry About Low SHBG?
« on: October 27, 2015, 04:17:52 pm »
I don't have much of an understanding about SHBG and did not have it pulled before TRT. I have been on TRT for 5 weeks now (100mg/week split in 3 doses) and got it pulled. It is 19.2nmol/L (16.5-55.9). So it is in range, but on the lower end. Anything to learn from this?

In my opinion that is okay.  I'm at 23 for example.  If you are at 19, then you were probably 26 before TRT roughly and that is a reasonable number.  Imo low SHBG is at 15 prior to TRT and 15-18 is the grey area where some guys struggle.
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:

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.
