Are There Hormone Replacements That Will Cause Diabetes?

Question: Hi I'm Mike from Austin and I was wondering if there are any hormone replacements that will cause diabetes?

Answer: Hi Mike, I hope you're doing well in Austin, and to answer the question regarding use of hormones and if it causes diabetes or not in males. Pretty much almost all the hormones that your asking specifically related to androgens, specifically the testosterone, does not cause diabetes in men. The only way they will cause diabetes is if you're at high risk of getting diabetes. Otherwise, it has no direct relationship.
