What to Believe?

Published on September 8th, 2017

When it comes to researching your health, so much information is available online that it can become overwhelming to say the least.

When it comes to the subject of male hormone and testosterone levels there’s so much erroneous information on unreliable blogs, it can be difficult to discern what the facts are. How do you know if Low T Treatment is safe and the right for fit for you?

We try to simplify it here with a few Facts and Myths when it comes to Low T Treatment:

  • Testosterone levels decreasing with age is NORMAL.  FACT! However, it is a common misconception that Low T ONLY affects “older” men. Low T can occur in men of ALL ages. It does not discriminate between numbers.
  • Abnormal, restless sleep can lower testosterone levels.  FACT! Getting your sleep under control could benefit other area of your health such as your testosterone.  Testosterone therapy also helps many men improve their sleep patterns.  FACT!
  • Low T Therapy is dangerous! MYTH!  Like any other prescription medication, testosterone needs to be taken properly under the guidance of a medical doctor.  However if taken responsibly  with follow up blood work, your levels will remain in the safe upper normal range.  It is incredibly important to make sure you are properly diagnosed and work with someone who is medically licensed and will join you in your journey to getting your T levels on track in a healthy manner.
  • Lifting Weights will Boost Your Testosterone Naturally. FACT! T levels are at their highest about 48 hours after training with heavy weights that put stressors on your body. An “easy” a non-intense workout will NOT have the same effects.

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!
