Aging is inevitable, and for many, it signals the beginning of a new chapter - one where you cross off bucket list items and live life to the fullest, on your own terms.

For men, getting older comes with its perks, like living life on their own terms and not having to "sweat the small stuff" day in and day out. At the same time, there are aspects of aging that men dread, like hormonal changes. Yes, you read that right â men, not just women, go through hormonal changes as they age. For men, the biggest change involves a drop in testosterone.
Lower levels of testosterone can wreak havoc on a male's mind and body and when left untreated, can result in symptoms like:
Those symptoms are concerning, but with testosterone replacement therapy and anti-aging medicine, many males improve their quality of life with age. The good news is that TRT and anti-aging meds aren't only reserved for "old guys." In fact, there's no magic age at which men should start thinking about hormone replacement therapy. Everyone's body is different, so if you're experiencing the above conditions in your mid-30s, TRT could be a viable solution when you consult with a doctor.
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.
Are you used to blasting through a productive day and accomplishing all your daily goals? Do you find yourself losing muscle mass and the craving to be intimate with your partner? Does your partner complain about how irritable you have become? If you're not usually a curmudgeon, your body could be giving you a sign. It could be time to speak with a doctor about TRT and anti-aging medicine for men in Deerfield Beach, FL.
If you're experiencing any of the following symptoms, you might be battling against low testosterone:
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 Deerfield Beach, FL, 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 Deerfield Beach, FL, 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.
The benefits of hormone replacement therapy for men are numerous. TRT not only grants relief from low-T symptoms but can help give protection against age-related diseases. Additionally, doctors now recognize male testosterone as an important role in alleviating depression.
Some of the most exciting benefits of TRT can include:
Because men do not go through a specific period of hormonal changes like women do (called menopause), many doctors refer to "male menopause" as androgen decline. This is just another term for low testosterone, but like female menopause, the symptoms can be serious and affect your quality of life.
The best way to fight back against male menopause is with male HRT treatment from Global Life Rejuvenation. We provide the following HRT treatments for men:
Our treatment options are personalized for your body and are available as creams, gels, injectables, and implantable pellets. To find out if testosterone replacement therapy is safe for you, contact Global Life Rejuvenation today to schedule your comprehensive testing and anti-aging treatment consultation.
Growth hormone peptides are an innovative therapy that boosts the natural human growth hormone production in a person's body. These exciting treatment options help slow down the aging process and give you a chance at restoring your youth.
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:
Whether you are considering our TRT services, HRT for women, or our growth hormone peptide services, we are here to help. The first step to turning back the hand of time starts by contacting Global Life Rejuvenation.
Our friendly, knowledgeable TRT and HRT experts can help answer your questions and walk you through our procedures. From there, we'll figure out which treatments are right for you. Before you know it, you'll be well on your way to looking and feeling better than you have in years!866-793-9933

Voters will decide in a referendum if Deerfield Beach can sell city land for a mixed-use development with an office building, hotel, retail stores, restaurants, and income-restricted apartments.
A development team led by construction company Hensel Phelps offered to pay $6.5 million to the city for the 3.8-acre development site near I-95.
The Deerfield Beach City Commission on Thursday approved the purchase price and other terms of the sale, including a $7.5 million contribution from the developers to the city for public improvements near the project site.
The commission also approved the language for a referendum on the sale, scheduled for March 14 in conjunction with a regular municipal election.
Under the city charter, Deerfield Beach needs the approval of 51 percent of eligible voters to sell any city-owned property for more than $750,000.
The development site at 1045 Southwest 11th Way became available this year after the city commission on Feb. 15 refused to extend a lease on the property for the eighth time. Florida Atlantic Research and Development Authority had leased the property since 2003, but failed to develop it.
In September, the city issued a formal “invitation to negotiate” for the acquisition and development of the site near the interchange of Southwest 10th Street and I-95.
Six development companies responded to the invitation to negotiate, and a committee of city officials gave its top ranking to a proposal by MBA Development Partners of Florida LLC. The second, third and fourth-ranked bids were submitted, respectively, by Falcone Group LLC, JBL Development, and Related Urban Development LLC.
MBA Development Partners is a joint venture between MBA Development LLC, led by Miami-based Robert Sherman, and a partnership of Hensel Phelps and Boca Raton-based Capital Group P3 Developments, led by Mario Caprini.
Greeley, Colo.-based Hensel Phelps is the primary investor in the development, said Ken Krasnow, a vice chairman of brokerage firm Colliers International, which has helped Deerfield Beach find a developer to buy and build on the city-owned land.
“They [Hensel Phelps] are one of the largest construction companies in the world, and they are the majority equity stakeholder in this project,” Krasnow told the city commission at its meeting Thursday night.
The planned mixed-use development would cluster an eight-story, 120-unit rental apartment building with a seven-story, 60,000-square-foot office building and a four-story, Marriott-branded hotel with 105 rooms. The development also would include two single-story buildings: a 20,000-square-foot event space and a 7,000- square-foot space for stores and restaurants.
Efforts to pre-lease space have attracted an unidentified health care company that may anchor the office building, Krasnow told the commission. He first told the commission about the prospective office tenant earlier this month.
The prospect is “a brand-name, institutional-quality tenant,” Krasnow told commissioners at their Dec. 5 meeting. “It’s a name that would be a calling card for Deerfield Beach.”
Krasnow also said at that meeting that eligibility to rent apartments in the mixed-use development would be restricted to people who collect 60 percent to 140 percent of area median income, or an approximate range of $42,000 to $100,000.

List, in order of importance, the three most important issues in your community and explain what you have done or would do about each.
Speaking to residents across my district I found three main concerns that citizens care about, congestion, maintaining parks and beaches and the delays repairing city bridges. City planning can not put residents at a disadvantage. Lovely parks are built and then abandoned while neighbors ask for restoration and maintenance to enhance aesthetic and community use. A sad example of this is Deerfield Island Park. Once the crown jewel of our city parks system, today, the island is virtually abandoned and a danger for the few that venture to visit this ecological treasure within our city limits. Non functioning bridges found at SE 13th Ave. and 7th Street and SE 15th Ave. equally causes neighborhood eyesores adding time for first responders accessibility and residents commuting to home. Parents and residents want schools and neighborhoods that are accessible, clean, safe and convenient.
How serious a problem in your community is overdevelopment, and would you support or oppose specific growth limits, such as requiring a supermajority vote for land use amendments? Why or why not?
The congestion on our roads no longer support growth limits. Parents, and residents want schools, neighborhoods and businesses that are accessible and convenient. To ensure that people’s will are always respected, I will never favor uncontrolled growth. Any change to the city master plan must only be approved through a plebiscite of the voters and must require supermajority approval.
What is the most overlooked issue in your community and what would you do about it?
In a time when views have divided many I believe in keeping our community united will best represent all the great ways residents enjoy all that Deerfield Beach offers.
Voter participation in March municipal elections is historically very low. What should be done to improve voter turnout?
The responsibility to get voters to show up and vote is the responsibility of the candidate. If you can’t corral your constituents to vote chance are you will not conduct the business of managing residents affairs differently. The overall disconnect is lack of communication The people are disenfranchised because the only time the incumbents remember the voters is only when there is an election. The people in my district will always know they have my ear. I will be their advocate.
What factor most distinguishes you from your opponent(s) and why?
The status quo is not acceptable. I have four decades of running small businesses that will bring solutions to their problems. Four decades has taught me how to execute to deliver cost effective and timely solutions. The job of city officials is to always be a good steward of the taxpayers purse, listen to residents and complete projects timely.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Relentless rain and whipping wind hit Broward County Wednesday, eroding beaches and dampening streets — and some tourists’ visits to South Florida.
In Deerfield Beach, Mother Nature took back some of the gains made by a beach nourishment project.
The city’s coastal manager estimates Deerfield Beach has lost 25% of the sand placed since Friday because of the storms.
Fort Lauderdale saw localized street flooding into Wednesday evening.
Northwest 12th Avenue, off of Sunrise Boulevard, practically turned into a river.

Ignoring advice, some drivers tried to go through the flood waters, with some ending up disabled.
Fort Lauderdale were on the lookout for disabled vehicles throughout the day.
Meanwhile, over at Quarterdeck off Las Olas, manager David Montelione served up beverages for the few tourists who braved the rain to grab a bite inside.
“A lot of our seating is outdoors and we are not seating outdoors at all because of the weather the last three days,” Montelione said.
John Ives and 9-year-old twins Aria and Aubrey Gelb were visiting from Ohio and Maryland, respectively.
“We were hoping for the sunshine,” Ives said.
Instead, they got a lot of gray and a lot of rain.
“We wanted to go to the beach, but it is raining, of course,” Aria Gelb said.
But there was optimism.
“It is not too bad right now so hopefully it stops raining,” Aubrey Gelb said.
Other parts of Broward were affected as well.
Miramar, Hollywood and Dania Beach also saw localized flooding.
Cars were seen going through flood waters on Fillmore Street in Hollywood.

Deerfield Beach officials will discuss selling a 3.75-acre site to a developer for a mixed-use project with an estimated $178 million construction cost.
The City Commission will consider the sale of 1045 S.W. 11th Way to MBA Development Partners of Florida LLC, managed by Tony Acquaviva of Boca Raton-based U.S. Mortgage, on Dec. 6. The deal would require 51% approval from city voters through a referendum, which would be held March 14.
Located at the southeast corner of Interstate 95 and the Southwest 10th Street exit, the vacant property was once leased by the city to the Florida Atlantic Research and Development Authority. However, that lease expired with no development taking place, and city officials elected to issue an Invitation to Negotiate process to find a developer for the land. Colliers was hired to market the property.
The proposal from MBA Development Partners of Florida received the highest score among four bidders.
The developer proposed a mixed-use project featuring 60,000 square feet of medical and office space, 120 units of workforce housing, a 104-room hotel, 12,000 square feet of convention and entertainment space, 7,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and about 1,130 parking spaces. The tallest building would be eight stories. There would be a public green roof and other public park space worth about $7.5 million, according to the application.
The developer pledged to work with local and minority-owned businesses to build the project, which it estimated would create 77 jobs upon completion. The project would generate $42 million in taxes for the city over 30 years, according to the application.
As for the financial terms of the deal, MBA Development would pay the city $6.5 million for the land, either up front in cash or over time through a land lease. Final terms of the deal must be negotiated with city staff before the item goes on the ballot.
In the application, the developer lists its partners as Cory Olson of CG HP Development and Robert Sherman of MBA Development Group. The project was designed by Gallo Herbert Architects in Deerfield Beach. Pompano Beach-based Keith is the lead planning firm. The application listed CBRE as the leasing broker for the office and medical space, and Champ Hospitality as the hotel operator.
Many cities across South Florida have been selling underutilized properties to spur development, which creates jobs and generates taxes.

Deerfield Beach – Two local, well-known names in the food and beverage industry are collaborating to bring this city its first brewery.
The Cove Brewery, first announced three years ago, is poised to open sometime in May. One of the owners, brewmaster Corey Wilson, most recently from Crazy Mike’s in Boca Raton, a brewery/music venue, has spent 15 years in the craft beer business. On the brewery’s website he talks about creating “new IPA’s” that describe the lifestyle here: Heat Wave, Tan Man, and Tide & Seek as well as “the simple joy of a real lager.”
It will all be served in a taproom reminiscent of old Florida and outdoors on a spacious patio.
Providing food for the brewery will be Won-Toms at The Cove, a new creation of Troy Ganter, owner of Papa’s Raw Bar in Lighthouse Point. Ganter is opening Won-Toms as an Eat Drink Be Local Family Brand, which includes the Raw Bar “campus” – Papa Fresh Market and the Barrel Room venue.
The menu for The Cove Brewery is being advertised as “Asian inspired dim sum and seafood.”
At the Brewery, Won-Toms will not have its own seating area, but will service the 7,000 square foot drinking hall. It will also have a takeout window and offer up a Dim Sum and Then Sum menu of tacos, General Tso’s Chicken, Panko Shrimp, drunken Thai noodles and other items.
The redesigned 24,000 square foot building, most recently warehouse space, is being developed by Whelchel Partners in Boca Raton.
Company Vice President Jay Whelchel said, “We are excited to be in Deerfield Beach. We grew up as beach kids. Deerfield’s vibe really speaks to us.”
The project was delayed by the pandemic and conditions that preceded it, Whelchel said. Now, he is awaiting the certificate of occupancy for the building, a requirement before he can get a state license to brew beer. That brewing process takes about 30 days, he said, adding it will likely be May before Wilson’s craft beer offerings will be on tap.
Whelchel is also excited about his brewery partners. Wilson, he said, “has great recipes” for his products and is “the right fit in the right place.
As for Ganter’s Won-Toms menu, Whelchel has been privy to some tastings and they have been, in his words, “phenomenal.”
Other retail stores such as a coffee shop and lifestyle businesses – bike and surf shops, fitness centers – are being sought. Michael Talbott, in sales at Whelchel, said there has been “tons of interest” from prospective tenants, but no signed contracts yet.
The architect on the project is Steven Cohen & Associates.
The Cove Shopping Center location is on Hillsboro Boulevard along the Intracoastal. It features a dozen other eating establishments serving ethnic foods ranging from Mexican to Italian to Irish to French to Thai to American pizza and seafood as well as retail shops, services and medical offices.
