Insulin and Finasteride

There is a link between finasteride or dutasteride and insulin sensitivity as shown in this article:  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4207930/

The conclusion of the article states: Dual inhibition of 5?Rs, but not inhibition of 5?R2 alone, modulates insulin sensitivity in human peripheral tissues rather than liver. This may have important implications for patients prescribed dutasteride for prostatic disease.
