How Is Your Sleep and Low T Linked?

Published on August 29th, 2017

Did you know that sleep troubles can sometimes be associated with low testosterone in men? It might commonly be talked up to be stress, age, work or other varying factors but the truth is that when your sleep is disturbed regularly it can stress your cortisone levels. What does that mean? That cortisone level can directly impact your testosterone levels. If that cortisone level increases too much your testosterone can decrease which causes a domino effect of other impacts. Makes sense right?

Your testosterone levels replenish every night so that means that good, solid, consistent nights of sleep are crucial for maintaining healthy testosterone levels. This can be hard to achieve. Wouldn’t we all like to sleep for a straight 8 hours? Even 6 or 7? If it were only that easy!

Another way sleep and Low T are linked is through your energy levels. If you struggle with Low T you likely feel less energetic throughout the day. If you are then unable to catch up on sleep at night you are entering a vicous cycle. Testosterone Replacement Therapy works to regulate these levels while sleep and energy are just a few of the many positive results someone can benefit from.

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!
