Hello. Thank you for posting your query at
The drug Mesterolone is safe, if used for low sperm counts. Diabetics can use it. But just ensure that you do have low sperm counts and low libido, and not just to boost the normal levels.
Feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

Thanks for the prompt response. I do have low libido and Low sperm. My Concern was when I read the Precaution in the Leaflet concerning diabetics. Again a Medical friend I have said something about how it may kill immune system in a diabetic since it is anabolic steroid.
I am concerned with the side affects especially when it comes to immune system.

If used for a short duration like a few weeks to 2-3 months, I think it should not affect the immune system.
Longer than that is not advisable.
Thank you.
