Does Having Low Testosterone Inherently Cause Insulin Resistance?

Hey there everyone-

I've asked questions (actually just one) similar to this in the past, but I never really got the answer I was looking for- My question relates very simply to insulin sensitivity and testosterone levels.

The question really is: If someone has low testosterone, does their body as a result react to insulin less efficiently than someone with normal or high levels of testosterone?

I've seen studies relating diabetes with low testosterone, and so the articles about the studies claim that low T is seen in people with poor insulin sensitivity, but that isn't what I'm really asking, which Is why I'm asking this question here. Does anyone know?

The reason behind this is that if one has low Testosterone levels, like I do, it would be good to know what class their metabolic function falls under, so that they (in this case me) can know what their carb tolerance is, or whether it's safer to try to heal their metabolisms before adding back in safe starches and other paleo carb sources.
