Let's Talk!

What is Testosterone?

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:

  • Facial Hair
  • Body Hair
  • Deeper Voice
  • Muscle Strength
  • Increased Libido
  • Muscle Density

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.

How Does TRT Work?

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 – 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.

What Causes Low T?

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.

Low Sex Drive

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.

Inability to Achieve and Maintain an Erection

Weak erections – 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.

Loss of Strength and Muscle Mass

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 Franklin Park, NJ, 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.

Hair Loss

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 Franklin Park, NJ, 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.

Gynecomastia

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

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.

Lack of Sleep

A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels – 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.

Depression

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 – 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.

Inability to Concentrate

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 – 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.

Weight Gain

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.

What is Sermorelin?

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.

 HRT For Men Franklin Park, NJ

Benefits of Sermorelin

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:

  • Better Immune Function
  • Improved Physical Performance
  • More Growth Hormone Production
  • Less Body Fat
  • Build More Lean Muscle
  • Better Sleep
 Human Growth Hormone Franklin Park, NJ

What is Ipamorelin?

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.

Benefits of Ipamorelin

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:

  • Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
  • More Muscle Mass
  • Less Unsightly Body Fat
  • Deep, Restful Sleep
  • Increased Athletic Performance
  • More Energy
  • Less Recovery Time for Training Sessions and Injuries
  • Enhanced Overall Wellness and Health
  • No Significant Increase in Cortisol

SOMERSET, NJ - The Township revealed in a memo that during March and April several samples tested were too acidic than accepted, the township says it’s not an emergency.

They have blamed this on the salt left behind by melting snow from the two major storms during the late winter season.

Additionally, testing has found the town’s pipe corrosion control systems to be inadequate, though monitoring has found no evidence of any raised lead or copper levels. During their twice-yearly testing, the town has not had a case of unacceptable copper or lead levels in their water in the past 10 years.

All systems are presently compliant, the town says.

Franklin Township Water purchases all of its water from NJ American Water, New Brunswick, and South Brunswick. It is presently working with those suppliers to ensure system compliance. The town is not aware of any similar issues, in those towns.

“The pH levels fell slightly out of range for our system as determined by the NJDEP (NJ Department of Environmental Protection). If there was an actionable level event, residents would have been notified within 24 hours as required by the NJDEP. The water was safe to drink”, said Franklin Public Works Manager, Carl Hauck in an email.

According to Hauck, while the pH level did fall below the neutral 7.0, it never went below 6.0.

As for solutions, the town frequently flushes this water to ensure sampling standards are compliant, and has installed both monitoring and water treatment devices at locations where purchased water enters the distribution system. Hauk says since the township started its water quality parameters plan (WQP) in 2016, the Water Division has not had any water quality issues.

The town says residents should run water for between 15 and 30 seconds or until it becomes cold before using it for drinking or cooking, if the water hasn’t been used for several hours. The township recommends using cold water for cooking and preparing baby formula.

Also, township leaders say boiling water will not reduce lead and/or copper levels, so boiling water is not necessary. It’s also recommended to use a filter to remove lead, or use bottled water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead exposure in children, you’re asked to contact their doctor.

Franklin Township Public Schools Mask Mandate Will Lift After CALI Score Improves

SOMERSET, NJ - The Franklin Township Board of Education voted to update its Road Forward COVID-19 –Health and Safety policy during Thursday night's meeting, and mask-wearing will be still expected in buildings after the statewide mandate expires on March 7.

The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) recently released updated masking guidance for K-12 schools and child care centers. One component of the NJDOH's guidance is for local districts to consult with their local health departments to discuss parameters for lifting the universal indoor masking requirement.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Ravally said after consulting with the Somerset County Health Department and the Franklin Township District Restart Committee, students and staff would be expected to remain masked until the Somerset County COVID-19 Activity Level Index (CALI) is green. Green would indicate a county has a low COVID transmission rate.

TAP here to view the report. School officials will review the county report weekly and "react accordingly" Ravally said at the meeting.

"The guidance does afford for districts whose counties are in yellow or green the flexibility with regard to masking," Ravally said. "However, again after consultation with our local health department, we in Franklin are recommending a more conservative approach and are recommending we stay masked until we are designated green with a promise to revisit post-spring break if we are still in the yellow at that time."

For districts like neighboring Bridgewater, that choose not to institute a universal masking policy, NJDOH recommends that schools should require mask wearing in the following circumstances:

Masks must still be worn by all passengers on buses, regardless of vaccination status, with the only exception being children under the age of two or those who cannot safely wear a mask.

During his February 23 COVID-19 news briefing, Murphy said he will end his weekly COVID-19 briefings on March 4, two years after the first reported case of COVID-19 in New Jersey. He has held 250 briefings since the start of the pandemic.

“While we have certainly understood the importance of these briefings to educating and updating residents, we also fully understand the need to move forward beyond the pandemic,” Murphy said.

SOMERSET, NJ - The long-awaited Franklin Township Community Youth Center had its grand opening Saturday afternoon, the free event was held to highlight the recreational programs, resources, and social services available to Franklin youth in grades six through twelve.

The 25,000-square-foot facility encompasses a gym, basketball court, audio and visual studios, open meeting space, lounges, and a satellite library facility.

Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman, of NJ’s 12th District, presented the center with a 1-million-dollar federal grant. Coleman praised the new facility, township officials, and community on the new structure and programs, and what it means for the families of Franklin Township.

“It is encouraging, and it is something that our children in our communities and their families should have,” Coleman said.

She described the new center as “more than just a building,” but rather an opportunity for children of the community to come to receive academic support, participate in athletic activities, and receive other enrichment opportunities.

The opening ceremony sparked intense emotions from community members and elected officials. Many of the speakers at the ceremony discussed the long arduous journey that the township took to reach the moment when the center opened.

“To have something that people have been discussing for over 50 years finally come to fruition is a big deal," Councilwoman At-Large Kimberly Francois said. She has been the main proponent of the construction of the youth center.

Francois, a former two-term Franklin Township Mayor, has focused a lot of her political career on providing services for the youth in the township. She founded the Franklin Youth Initiative and is the board secretary for The Somerset Community Action Program. Francois says she initially ran in 1995 for council, on a platform that focused on recreation and the senior community.

She explained her first attempt at building a youth center in 1996 when she was first elected to office, a community center was built.

“My process and my vision back then was, seniors would be there in the daytime and the kids at night,” explained Francois, adding “it’s a community center, but really it’s a senior center, so there is still a gap for the youth.” Primarily seniors used the community center.

Phyllis Beals, a Franklin Township resident, and President of the Franklin Woman’s Club, recalled when the youth initiative began and a big push to open a Youth Center.

“In 2007, when my son graduated from high school, we lost two young men to violence that year and so that was right around when the Franklin Township Youth Initiative started,” Beals explained adding “my daughter walked in that stop the violence march [referring to the March for Peace event in August 2007] and we were like, our kids need a youth center.” She explained that the Youth initiative began to provide services to adolescents.

“We had an after-school teen center program, Team Rec, but certain kids couldn't participate,” which was another factor in the push to open the youth center, like those that were expelled from school, according to Beal. She stated that the idea was “we got to find a place for kids who are trying to find their way back to good, healthy living.”

Despite the joyous occasion of the grand opening, the journey to the eventual opening of the youth center was onerous. According to Saffie Kallon, Special Projects Manager for the township of Franklin “we were supposed to open, originally, I think 2020 September.” The first confirmed Covid case occurred in March 2020.

Kallon, who has been working in Franklin Township since 1998, explained that although the project began nearly a decade ago, the idea of a youth center dates to before she started working in the town. “They had been talking about youth centers, and they've had different iterations,” explained Kallon.

She described a mixture of different facilities and programs that included borrowed high school classrooms, the old SCAP (Somerset Community Action Program) building, where the Youth Center currently stands, and other satellite programs for Franklin youth. This created a network of programs, “but they've all been speaking toward, oh, we need a youth center,” Kallon explained.

Although the grand opening occurred on Saturday, the community youth was able to use the facility at a limited capacity for a soft opening in 2021.

“So many discussions and so many iterations of what that soft opening was going to look like. Because like everybody else, the pandemic was new to us,” explained Windy White, Deputy Director of Recreation at Franklin Township.

White explained that the pandemic delayed the opening for some years. She described the situation “we kind of modeled what the world did,” and kept planning, but expressed that at the time they thought you know what, this thing is intensifying, and we need to make sure people are safe,” but continued planning.

In the process of planning for the opening of the youth center, Dan Glicklich, former Councilmember of Franklin Township, and Bruce Medley Franklin Youth Initiative Coordinator, passed away. Both were honored for their contributions to the youth center at the ceremony, with plaques received by their respective families.

Mask mandate ends in Franklin Township — except in schools and town buildings

SOMERSET, NJ — The mask mandate for businesses and venues in Franklin Township came to an end last night with the Council’s vote to remove the order put in place last month. Council members voted unanimously to rescind the order, with Mayor Phil Kramer citing declining cases in Franklin and hospitalizations going down across the state.“I could tell you from personal experience in the hospital, that the ER's have been very crowded at one point and now they're freeing up and there isn't a rush that we get people out as...

SOMERSET, NJ — The mask mandate for businesses and venues in Franklin Township came to an end last night with the Council’s vote to remove the order put in place last month. Council members voted unanimously to rescind the order, with Mayor Phil Kramer citing declining cases in Franklin and hospitalizations going down across the state.

“I could tell you from personal experience in the hospital, that the ER's have been very crowded at one point and now they're freeing up and there isn't a rush that we get people out as quickly as possible,” said Kramer. “So the hospitals are freeing up … the schools are freeing up. I am recommending we remove the mandate.”

The resolution doesn’t change actions taken by the school board to require masks in Franklin public schools, lift the mask mandate in town buildings, nor does it prohibit businesses and venues from implementing their own masking requirements.

The mandate comes to an end two weeks ahead of schedule, with the original resolution set to expire on Feb. 8. As initially introduced by Kramer in December, the mandate lacked a timeline and was at Township Manager Robert Vornlocker’s discretion to end — with 72 hours’ notice to the Council or when a resolution like last night’s was passed by the body. A motion by Councilman James Vassanella added the Feb. 8 sunset date, which the mayor embraced.

“I had absolutely no problem with that because I knew that every day, multiple times a day … I reviewed whether we should be keeping a mask mandate and I thought about it constantly, so I knew this was going to end when it was appropriate that it should end,” Kramer said.

The mayor indicated that Franklin Township was the first in the area to remove mask mandates enacted last month. In Morristown, the executive order that put the mandate in place was rescinded by Mayor Tim Dougherty last week. And across the Raritan River in Highland Park, the mandate remains in effect until the end of January.

Kramer said he is happy the council mandated masks during the Omicron surge and still encourages residents to mask up and get their vaccinations.

“I still strongly support the use of masks … I recommend businesses still require mass on their own but I don't want to use the power of government to coerce them to do that,” he said.
