Do you have general and increasing fatigue as each year passes? Maybe you have some steady, undesired weight gain, accompanied by loss of muscle mass. Think of all the negative changes you may have come to associate with inevitable side effects of the male aging process. Add them all up, and you have a long-lasting decrease in quality of life. You have what is frequently referred to as “male menopause.” You have andropause.
Decreasing hormone levels are what cause this process to start and continually increase symptoms over time. There is a solution. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy at Tru-Male Medical in Chicago. Get in touch with us today to schedule your consultation and find out if BHRT is right for you.

What is BHRT?
Bioidentical hormones are created to mimic, nearly identically, the hormones that organically occur in the human body. They are derived from plant-based sources and are extremely close to exact copies of the molecules they replace in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. By restoring hormones that are depleted in your body, they can stop the process of slow surrender to aging in its tracks.
The many incremental downsides of male aging, when taken individually, are not life-threatening or debilitating, but they’re certainly not fun. What if the overall symptoms associated with aging are largely avoidable?
So we go to the source; the true root cause. Trying to treat over a dozen symptoms of andropause individually will net you an incredible cache of prescription drugs, all while leaving the real culprit — decreasing levels of naturally occurring hormones — unaddressed.
How Can BHRT Treat Andropause?
Testosterone, the quintessential male hormone, decreases as men age. For some, testosterone peaks as early as the mid-to-late 20s and by 40, almost all men have begun to see their levels fall. This decrease only becomes more apparent with each passing year as the symptoms begin to show. Testosterone replacement can restore your body’s natural balance and help reduce some symptoms of aging. Some examples are decreased body fat, improved sexual function, and decreased risk of heart attacks and strokes.
