Many previous studies have claimed that TRT have significant effects on BMI, lipid profiles and HOMA‐IR, but our study demonstrates the opposite. Therefore, the results of this study might help change the clinical practice. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Diabetic Medicine Wiley

Abstract
