A possible adjunct in diagnosis and follow-up of insulin resistance and cardiovascular and type 2 diabetes risk assessment, particularly in women. SHBG gene promoter polymorphisms in men are associated with serum sex hormone-binding globulin, androgen and androgen metabolite levels, and hip bone mineral density.
Separate logistic regression analyses evaluate associations between total or free testosterone, SHBG, and LH levels with AAA adjusting for all covariates shown in multivariate model. J Am Geriatr Soc ; 56 : — Received : 28 September The natural history of symptomatic androgen deficiency in men: onset, progression, and spontaneous remission.

Drinking too much alcohol can cause your SHBG levels to rise. Metabolic clearance of SHBG is biphasic, with a fast initial distribution from vascular compartment into extracellular space half-life of a few hoursfollowed by a slower degradation phase half-life of several days.
