Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men and plays an important role throughout the male lifespan. Most of a male's testosterone is produced through the testicles. Also called the male sex hormone, testosterone starts playing its part during puberty.
When a male goes through puberty, testosterone helps males develop:
As boys turn to men and men grow older, testosterone levels deplete naturally. Sometimes, events like injuries and chronic health conditions like diabetes can lower testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much T, it results in hypogonadism. When this happens, the testosterone must be replaced, or the male will suffer from symptoms like muscle loss, low libido, and even depression.
TRT is exactly what it sounds like: a treatment option for men that replaces testosterone so that your body regulates hormones properly and restores balance to your life. Also called androgen replacement therapy, TRT alleviates the symptoms that men experience with low T.
Originally lab-synthesized in 1935, testosterone has grown in popularity since it was produced. Today, TRT and other testosterone treatments are among the most popular prescriptions in the U.S.
Without getting too deep into the science, TRT works by giving your body the essential testosterone it needs to function correctly. As the primary androgen for both males and females, testosterone impacts many of the body's natural processes â especially those needed for overall health. For example, men with low T are more prone to serious problems like cardiovascular disease and even type-2 diabetes.
When your body quits making enough testosterone, it causes your health to suffer until a solution is presented. That's where TRT and anti-aging medicine for men can help. TRT helps balance your hormones and replenish your depleted testosterone. With time, your body will begin to heal, and many symptoms like low libido and irritability begin to diminish.
For men, aging is the biggest contributor to lower testosterone levels, though there are other causes like obesity, drug abuse, testicular injuries, and certain prescribed medications. Sometimes, long-term health conditions like AIDS, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease can lower testosterone levels.
When a man's testosterone levels drop significantly, it alters his body's ratio of estrogen and testosterone. Lower testosterone levels cause more abdominal fat, which in turn results in increased aromatase, which converts even more testosterone into estrogen.
If you're concerned that you might have low T, you're not alone. Millions of men in the U.S. feel the same way. The best way to find out if your testosterone is low is to get your levels tested.
For sustainable testosterone replacement therapy benefits, you must consult with hormone doctors and experts like those you can find at Global Life Rejuvenation. That way, you can find the root cause of your hormone problems, and our team can craft a personalized HRT plan tailored to your needs.
One of the most common reasons that men choose TRT is because they have lost that "spark" with their partner. It's not easy for a man to hear that they're not performing like they used to. Intimacy is a powerful part of any relationship. When a once-healthy sex life dwindles, it can cause serious relationship issues.
The good news is that low libido doesn't have to be a permanent problem. TRT and anti-aging medicines help revert hormone levels back into their normal range. When this happens, many men have a more enjoyable life full of intimacy and sex drive.
Weak erections â it's an uncomfortable subject for many men in the U.S. to talk about. It's even worse to experience first-hand. You're in the midst of an intimate moment, and you can't do your part. Despite being perfectly normal, many men put blame and shame upon themselves when they can't achieve an erection. And while the inability to perform sexually can be caused by poor diet, obesity, and chronic health conditions, low testosterone is often a contributing factor.
Fortunately, weak erections are a treatable condition. The best way to regain your confidence and ability in bed is to speak with your doctor. Once any underlying conditions are discovered, options like TRT may be the best course of treatment.
Do you find it harder and harder to work out and lift weights in the gym? Are you having problems lifting heavy items that you once had no problem lifting?
Recent studies show that when men are inactive, they lose .5% of muscle strength every year, from ages 25 to 60. After 60, muscle loss doubles every decade. While some muscle loss is common as men age, a significant portion can be tied to low testosterone levels. When a man's T levels drop, so does his muscle mass.
Testosterone is a much-needed component used in gaining and retaining muscle mass. That's why many doctors prescribe TRT Concord, NC, for men having problems with strength. One recent study found that men who increased their testosterone levels using TRT gained as much as 2.5 pounds of muscle mass.
Whether your gym performance is lacking, or you can't lift heavy items like you used to, don't blame it all on age. You could be suffering from hypogonadism.
If you're like millions of other men in their late 20s and 30s, dealing with hair loss is a reality you don't want to face. Closely related to testosterone decline and hormone imbalances, hair loss is distressing for many men. This common symptom is often related to a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Excess amounts of DHT cause hair follicles to halt their production, causing follicles to die.
Because hair located at the front and crown is more sensitive to DHT, it grows slower than other follicles and eventually stops growing permanently. Thankfully, TRT and anti-aging treatments for men in Concord, NC, is now available to address hair loss for good.
While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone on your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and other hormone therapies can stop hair loss and even reverse the process.
Also called "man boobs," gynecomastia is essentially the enlargement of male breast tissue. This increase in fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. For men, estrogen levels are elevated during andropause. Also called male menopause, andropause usually happens because of a lack of testosterone.
If you're a man between the ages of 40 and 55, and you're embarrassed by having large breasts, don't lose hope. TRT is a safe, effective way to eliminate the underlying cause of gynecomastia without invasive surgery. With a custom HRT and fitness program, you can bring your testosterone and estrogen levels back to normal before you know it.
Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Today, many doctors know better. Advances in technology and our understanding of testosterone show that low T and lack of energy often go hand-in-hand.
If you're struggling to enjoy activities like playing with your kids or hiking in a park due to lack of energy, it could be a sign of low T. Of course, getting tired is perfectly normal for any man. But if you're suffering from continual fatigue, a lack of enjoyment, or a decrease in energy, it might be time to speak with a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish activities you used to love, TRT could help.
A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels â as much as 15%, according to experts. Additional research into the topic found almost 15% of workers only get five hours of sleep (or less) per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss negatively impacts T levels and wellbeing.
The bottom line is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone levels as a result. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, you might have low T.
TRT and anti-aging medicines can restore your T levels back to normal, which can help you sleep better with proper diet and exercise.
You're feeling down about everything, and there's no solid explanation for why you're in such a crummy mood. Your daily life is great and full of success, but you can't help but feel unexcited and unmotivated. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed â and it may stem from low testosterone.
A research study from Munich found that men with depression also commonly had low testosterone levels. This same study also found that depressed men had cortisol levels that were 67% higher than other men. Because higher cortisol levels lead to lower levels of testosterone, the chances of severe depression increase.
Depression is a very real disorder and should always be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. One treatment option gaining in popularity is TRT for depression. Studies show that when TRT is used to restore hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more improved mood. That's great news for men who are depressed and have not had success with other treatments like anti-depression medicines, which alter the brain's chemistry.
Ask anyone over the age of 50 how their memory is, and they'll tell you it wasn't what it used to be. Memory loss and lack of concentration occur naturally as we age â these aren't always signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.
However, what many men consider a symptom of age may be caused by low testosterone. A 2006 study found that males with low T levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. These results suggest that low testosterone may play a part in reducing cognitive ability. If you're having trouble staying on task or remembering what your schedule is for the day, it might not be due to your age. It might be because your testosterone levels are too low. If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering daily tasks, it could be time to talk to your doctor.
Why? The aforementioned study found that participating men experienced improved cognitive skills when using TRT.
Even though today's society is more inclusive of large people, few adults enjoy gaining weight as they age. Despite their best efforts, many men just can't shed the extra pounds around their midsections, increasing their risk of heart disease and cancer.
Often, male weight gain is caused by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism and cause weight to pile on. This phase of life is called andropause and happens when there is a lack of testosterone in the body. Couple that with high cortisol levels, and you've got a recipe for flabby guts and double chins.
Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Benefits of Sermorelin include:
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it is suitable for both men and women. It provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies, boosting patients' overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life. When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits.
Some of those benefits include:

The Tar Heel State is getting a taste of Texas next year.
CONCORD, N.C. — A Texas treat is making its way to North Carolina, with a grand entrance set for 2024 in Concord.
Shipley Do-Nuts announced Wednesday it had signed a development deal with husband-and-wife franchisees John and Lillian Brijeski to bring a trio of stores to the Charlotte area starting late next year. The very first Shipley location in the state will open in Concord.
Shipley was founded in 1936 and has more than 340 locations across 12 states already. Rapid expansion across the American southeast has seen locations pop up in South Carolina, Maryland, and Georgia. Lillian Brejeski said a recent trip to the Palmetto State helped them decide to bring the do-nuts to the Tar Heel State.
“After trying Shipley Do-Nuts for the first time in South Carolina, we agreed they were delicious and that we needed to bring the world’s greatest do-nuts to the residents of North Carolina,” she said. “We also fell in love with the company and the Shipley story after our visit to Houston to explore the opportunity to open locations of our own. We love the Do-Happy motto and want to spread that theme throughout the Charlotte area.”
The Brijeskis are both touted as seasoned franchisees according to a news release from Shipley. They both owned and operated a Kumon Math & Reading Center in Tarrytown, New York for nine years before moving to Charlotte in 2021. John Brijeski is a CPA and a hotel industry CFO, while Lillian Brijeski is a former educator. Lillian will directly lead construction, hiring, and operations for the new shops.
“John and Lillian have experience in running a successful franchise business, a strong background in finance, a great first location and a passion for the Shipley Do-Nuts brand,” said Shipley Do-Nuts CEO Flynn Dekker. “Our focus is on growing our brand with high-quality franchisees, and they are the ideal partners to bring Shipley to North Carolina. We welcome them to the Shipley Do-Nuts family.”
In addition to selling more than 60 varieties of do-nuts, Shipley offers kolaches, hot coffee, and cold brew to patrons.
Beyond the southeast, shops are set to open in the Midwest for the first time, with territories offered in Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, and Ohio.

CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - The City of Concord has named Jackie Deal as the next Engineering Director. Deal brings over 15 years of experience in municipal engineering and construction to the position. She will lead the engineering, technical, and contract management services for all city departments and work with private consultants and contractors to continue developing Concord as one of the most desirable places to live, work and visit.
“Jackie’s experience managing and coordinating multi-million-dollar projects will prove to be a tremendous asset for our growing city and communities across Concord,” said City Manager Lloyd Payne. “With many years of experience in the public and private engineering field I know Jackie will hit the ground running, and I am excited to welcome her to Team Concord.”
Deal has experience in both the public sector and private sector working with local governments and is an adept leader in managing projects of various sizes – from small community projects to multi-million-dollar infrastructure improvements. She started her career in construction as a project engineer at Crowder Construction Company, and later joined the City of Charlotte’s Storm Water Services where she most recently served as a Senior Project Manager overseeing 90 projects and a $28.5 million budget.
“I am honored to serve the residents of Concord and to lead the talented and dynamic team in the Engineering Department,” said Deal. “I look forward to continuing the legacy of providing quality and cost-effective engineering to other departments, producing innovative capital projects, and ensuring a seamless and easy to navigate permitting process for the development community.”
As Engineering Director, Deal will provide strategic direction and oversight on projects to protect the City’s interest in both new development and the operation and maintenance of existing infrastructure. She will begin her tenure with the City of Concord on October 30 and will work alongside the City’s current Director, Sue Hyde, until her retirement at the end of the year. This will provide a smooth transition of leadership and management of projects currently underway across the city.
Deal is a registered North Carolina professional engineer, is certified NASSCO, and active in the American Public Works Association (APWA). She holds a bachelor’s degree from NC State University and a Master of Public Administration from Corban University.
In her free time, Deal enjoys being active in her church, watching her children’s athletic events, and traveling with her husband, Bill.

CONCORD, N.C. — A two-alarm fire ripped through a Concord apartment complex Tuesday, the fire department said.
It happened just before 4 p.m. at the Creekside Apartments on American Avenue Northeast.
The Concord Fire Department said 20 crews responded three minutes after they got the call.
Firefighters said they were able to control the two-alarm fire in 22 minutes.
Derrick Ravenell lived in one of the 12 units that was destroyed.
“We just heard a popping noise from around back, and the next thing I know, my whole back porch is on fire, so we just grabbed my baby,” Ravenell told Channel 9 Tuesday night.
The fire destroyed much of the building despite the fire department’s quick response.
“I (saw) the fire, seen the blaze through the back door,” Ravenell said. “The next thing I know, the whole apartment was on fire.”
Victims emerged mostly empty-handed.
“I feel terrible,” Ravenell said. “I lost everything, just the clothes on my back. My baby is one year old, just the clothes on his back. I feel terrible. We don’t have nothing. We lost everything.”
A Channel 9 crew at the scene could see where flames melted the siding and scorched a balcony on the upper floor.
“There’s significant damage throughout floor two and floor three,” said Chief Jake Williams, Concord Fire Department.
The entire building was evacuated and it’s unclear how many people were displaced.
“All the occupants that currently reside here will be receiving assistance for the night,” Williams said.
“I thank God for what they have done,” Ravenell said.
No one was hurt, a spokesperson for the City of Concord said.
“Everybody came together and we helped make sure everyone was out of the apartments, and everybody was safe,” Ravenell said.
The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
Monday morning, the American Red Cross announced that 40 residents had been displaced due to the fire.
It will be working to provide food, shelter, and relief items to those in need.
“We are looking at about ten families, forty people. We are trying to make sure those families are taken care of. Last night, we were able to give them immediate assistance. Now we are going to move forward with what other casework would be,” said American Red Cross Executive Director Sheila Crunkleton.
