    Androgen deprivation therapy in men has been shown to worsen insulin resistance and precipitate type II Diabetes as well as stimulate weight gain.  This suggests a cause effect relationship between Testosterone and insulin sensitivity.  Other studies have pointed to a reciprocal decline in Testosterone due to hyperglycemia--both acute and chronic.  

    Androgen deprivation has a significant long list of cardiovascular risks and this should be discussed with the patient.
