Recognizing Low Testosterone Symptoms

Published on October 10th, 2017

We often tell prospective patients to take our Low T Quiz prior to scheduling an appointment, to determine if they are a candidate for Testosterone Replacement Therapy. The Low T Quiz lists most of the common symptoms men with low testosterone experience. Some of these symptoms include an increase in body fat coupled with a decrease in muscle mass, and a decrease in sex drive, libido, and energy levels.. These symptoms can sometimes be indicators of other health issues. That’s why we test all of our patients blood, to determine if in fact, they are being cause by low testosterone levels.

Low Testosterone is a deficiency that should be taken seriously. It requires a medical diagnosis through blood work and a physical examination. It should be noted, that while testosterone replacement therapy can eliminate all of the above symptoms, it is a replacement therapy not a stimulator. That means that testosterone levels only return to normal while taking the medication. Testosterone deficiency is a disorder that can affect 1 in 4 men over the age of 40 (Source: ABC)

I was working out with my husband for over two years and eating well, he was losing weight & gaining muscle while nothing was happening on my end. After feeling frustrated, I called Chicagoland Men’s Health and felt extremely comfortable speaking with the Doc. I came in and did a detailed blood work up..and finally figured out what my general physician and dietician couldn’t. Fast forward three months, I’ve lost 8 pounds and a half inch and am half way to my goals, I still do my functional fitness work outs 4-5 days a week and eat well but now I can see the results.

I was referred to Dr. Kauf by a friend who is on the TRT program; he looks amazing! Chicago Men's Health also treats women, so I decided to try it. Have been on the program for one year and WOW! After a few months, I noticed a change in my skin tone, muscle tone and increased energy! Dr. Kauf explained everything in detail and is always available within a few minutes, he rocks! Getting on this program is one of the best decisions I have made. Highly recommended for women, as well as men!
