Background: Low serum testosterone level is associated with in-creased risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in overweight men with im-paired glucose tolerance (IGT). It is not known whether testosterone (T) treatment is effective and safe for preventing T2D in this high- risk group.Aim: To determine in a large, multicentre, double- blinded placebo- controlled RCT, whether T treatment combined with lifestyle inter-vention (Weight Watchers®) as compared to lifestyle intervention alone, reduces T2D at 2 years.
