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 Hasbrouck Heights, 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.
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 Hasbrouck Heights, 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.
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:

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The Hasbrouck Heights Board of Education honored its Teachers of the Year, retiring staff and the girls spring track team at its meeting last Thursday.
First to be recognized were the district's Teachers of the Year, who were honored by their principal.
The Euclid School Teacher of the Year is Diane Robertson, fifth grade teacher, who was presented by Michael Sickels, Principal.
"Mrs. Robertson's class is always open and inviting...she has teachers come in and observe her," said Sickels "Word got out, and actually we now have teachers from Wallington come in and watch her teach. She's really good at her craft. You walk into her classroom, and you'll see her in front of the class with the kids on the floor, or you won't find her at all. And I don't know where she is sometimes, because she's bending down next to a kid, as they're all spread about, working with them one on one."
"But not only is so great in the classroom, but outside the classroom," he continued. "She stops kids in the streets, in the hallways, at football fields, baseball fields. She's very inviting to the parents, they all love her. She is all around amazing."
"She is one of the kids' favorite teachers, and without a doubt one of the staff's favorite teachers as well," he said.
The Lincoln School Teacher of the Year is Nichole Rucci, ESL teacher, who was presented by Dr. Matthew Helfant, Superintendent, as Joseph Colangelo, principal was running late.
"Nichole does ESL, and we've had a real increase, and I know that you've done an excellent job with working with them," said Helfant. "She's done an excellent job, she's a great teacher, and really helped with that program."
Helfant then called up Mary Ann Pagano, who is retiring from Lincoln School. She started out as a teacher and then became a guidance counselor at the school.
"Mary Ann became a counselor and really helped with that program, and really made it what it is today," he said.
Colangelo then joined the presentation.
"If you were a student of Mary Ann's, you participated in the wax museum," said Colangelo. "Going forward, the wax museum will be known as "Madame Pagano's Wax Museum."
Helfant also announced the retired of paraprofessional Helen Pasqualone, and Roseanne Kammerer.
At Hasbrouck Heights High School, the Teacher of the Year was Mary Centrella, and at Hasbrouck Heights Middle School it was Jennifer Keller.
Spring track coach Robert Brady was then called to recognize the girls track and field team for their achievements in the 2022 season.
Brady said the successes began at the end of the winter track season as two relays qualified for the New Balance Indoor National Championships and Nike Indoor National Championship. One team placed sixth at the Nike meet, giving them All America status. He noted it was "a tremendous honor" and the first time in school history a team placed sixth.
The girls team saw more success in spring, "they have done some amazing things this year," Brady said, they "won every meet that they've been to this year" except the NJSIAA group championships. Wins included the Season Opener Meet, Aviator Relays, County Seat Invitational, Bergen County Group Championship, and Rams Relay. In the Bergen County Relay Championship, the team won every event that they entered for a perfect 160 point score. They won the NJSIAA Sectional Championship by 100 points, and were named Bergen County Team of the Year.
"It's a tremendous honor to coach these kids," said Brady noting that it's hard to say goodbye to the seniors. Each girl was called up to receive a certificate of achievement from the board.

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The Hasbrouck Heights third/fourth grade Rec softball team HH21 finished an undefeated season, winning the 2022 South Bergen Girls Softball League (SBGSL) championship.
"The coaches and I are extremely proud of the girls and had an absolute blast teaching them and helping them develop all season," said head coach Mike Davis.
After a 12-0 regular season record, the team headed into the SBGSL playoffs. Davis noted "all the teams were prepared to give their all when the playoffs began."
After getting a bye in the first round, Hasbrouck Heights 21 played Wood-Ridge (WR25) in the semifinal game. According to Davis, Wood-Ridge played a strong game in keeping the score to only a two-run differential midway through the game. Hasbrouck Heights broke it open with a two RBI hit by Ava Casazza to double the lead, followed by a three run homerun by Lilly Grella in the next at bat to blow the game open and secure the lead.
The very next inning shortstop Nina Screvane-D’Amore took a hard grounder off her chin, but recovered to make the throw and get a critical out at first. Savannah Davis then struck out the game's final five batters, to finish with 13 strikeouts for the game. Earlier in the game, two stellar defensive plays by third baseman Dylan Gibbs-Sausa helped contain Wood-Ridge’s offense at big moments.
The Championship game would match up two Hasbrouck Heights teams, HH21 against HH 22. HH21 jumped out to a quick lead in the first with a 4-0 lead as catcher Lily Grella continued to have a hot bat, knocking in two of those runs. But the other Hasbrouck Heights team (HH22) chipped away at the lead eventually tying it 4-4.
Davis explained that the team had never been tied or trailed at any point during the year and after only giving up eight total runs in the regular season, and this was the most they had let up in a single game. The girls rallied the next inning by scoring two as first baseman Gianna Carullo knocked in one of her three RBIs on the day by putting the ball in play, as Gibbs-Sousa used her speed to score from second base while the defense made the play on Carulla. Melissa Acurol took a hit by pitch with the bases loaded to score the second run of the inning.
In the final inning, the girls scored four mmore runs to stretch the lead. The top of the order came up and after Lyla Rodrigues walked and stole a base, Nina Screvane-D’Amore blasted a two-run homerun that went into the softball field across from where the game was being played to double the lead. Davis and Gibbs-Sousa then both got on for Carulla and Ava Casazza to knock them in to get the score to 10-5 heading into the final at bat for the other Hasbrouck Heights team.
Davis, after giving up some early runs in the game settled down, and closed the final six batters across the last two innings with three ground balls back to her, two strikeouts, and getting the final out on a popup back to the mound for the win . The final score in the Championship game between two Hasbrouck Heights teams was 10-5.
"The girls on the team played with such a combination of enthusiasm and tenacity, it was fun to coach and watch them all season," said. Davis.
Davis shared some stats from the season:
"These girls demonstrated the fun and enjoyment of being on a softball team and developing those team bonds," said Davis. "This group also showed a burning desire to compete and win as anytime they were challenged they rose to the occasion and came out on top."
"This spring season was so much fun with the girls we are very sad it had to come to an end," Davis continued. "These girls are just at their beginning of their playing careers, but they have already shown how bright their futures will be and how much fun their families and friends are going to have watching them."

Roselle Park was given a chance to reach the sectional finals in its own building and it was the lower weight classes that stepped up in a big way.
The Panthers got four consecutive pins from their lightest wrestlers to clinch a spot in the North Jersey Section 2 Group 1 championship after a 52-19 victory over sixth-seeded Secaucus in the semifinal in Roselle Park.
The Panthers, the second seed, advanced with a 41-37 win against seventh-seeded Boonton in the quarterfinal.
Roselle Park (11-2) will take on top-seeded Hasbrouck Heights (15-7) in the championship on Wednesday night at Hasbrouck Heights. The Aviators advanced to the final after dominating eighth-seeded Whippany Park, 54-27, in the quarterfinal followed by a 48-24 victory over fifth-seeded Verona.
The top two seeds in the section will have a chance to do battle to see who will reign supreme. There will be just one match on Wednesday night but that was not the case on Monday.
“Our venue doesn’t allow us to have two mats,” Roselle Park head coach Ryan Rooney said. “Because of this, we had a chance to come out and scout the opponent, which was nice. At the same time, we didn’t make any moves and wrestled our guys where they belong.”
Secaucus (10-12) was given something to cheer about early on. Dylan Formisano earned a 2-0 win over Kevin Osorio at 285 to put the Patriots up 3-0 early. From that moment on, it was all Panthers.
Roselle Park saw four straight wins by pin to gain control 24-3. Matthew Griffin (106) and Brandon Scott (113) got it started followed by Sal Randazzo (120) and Nick Torino (126). This has been a strength for the Panthers all season long.
“I’m really proud of the way that group has been practicing and progressing,” Rooney said. “It hasn’t just been this year. It’s been for years from this group. They work really hard and that is what we expect from them. We expect that to continue for sure.”
Mayson Harms earned a major decision victory over Dean Costantino at 132 and the rout was on.
“For this match, we were focused on putting points on the board and getting it done for our team,” Harms said. “We know our strong points and where we can lean to get those important pins.”
Secaucus had the chance to take on Roselle Park after upsetting third-seeded Mountain Lakes, 48-33, in the quarterfinal. For the Patriots, the underclassmen have played a huge part and this will help for years to come.

“At the beginning of the season, we wanted to make sure everyone was having fun and comfortable,” Secaucus head coach Evan Pope said. “Guys were struggling a bit but now, guys are coming up big in sectional matches. I’m happy that the young guys were able to have success to set us up moving forward.”
The wins by falls kept coming for Roselle Park with Angel Mejia at 144 and Julian Martin at 150. Julian Colon (157) got it done in the fastest time winning his bout in just 26 seconds.
“We have leadership through our junior class even,” Rooney said. “Almost all of our lineup has been at the varsity level for three years. We can lean on any single person in our lineup to step up when we need you to step up.”
Nevin Trueblood and Daniel Casillas earned decision victories for the Patriots with Nick Bartletta winning by forfeit to end the night.
“I had a couple of goals in my first year,” Pope said. “I wanted to try and win 10 matches and we did that tonight. I wanted to make it to sectionals and have a chance to win. You’re going to go and wrestle a tough team. You know that going in. We had some good performances tonight from guys who were struggling a bit. There were plenty of our guys that stepped up.”
In a season that saw Roselle Park know its role and perform up to expectations, the Panthers will now have a chance to compete for a championship.
“It’s just been great to wrestle in front of people again,” Harms said. “Having the crowd and energy back. It makes us want to win and gives us a boost. It makes you just want to wrestle better and perform at the highest level.”

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - It took over two hours, with numerous questions from local residents and board members, but Hasbrouck Heights Planning Board approved the application for a Shake Shack to come to the borough on the former Mt. Fuji site on Route 17 South.
The group made a preliminary, informal presentation to the Board in June.
The group looks to demolish the Mt. Fuji structure and build a 2100 square foot restaurant with a two-lane drive-thru which can accommodate 26 cars in the queue. The inside will be open for ordering or order pick up only. A 990 square foot, three-season 40-seat exterior patio will be open. Both the drive-thru and patio will be on the Route 17 side of the building to help curb noise for area residents.
The fast casual chain is planning to open 10 drive-thru sites nationally in 2022, according to reporting in the restaurant industry publication, "Restaurant Dive." Other Shake Shacks in the area include Paramus and Wayne.
The applicants were seeking several variances:
The group said it would take approximately six months to prepare the property and build the restaurant.
Approximately a dozen residents from Field Avenue, whose properties border the site, peppered the group with questions ranging from litter, light, noise and traffic. They noted that litter has been an ongoing issue from the restaurants along that stretch of Route 17. They expressed concerns about the scheduled time of deliveries and garbage pick up, light and noise coming from the new site, as well as increased traffic coming down Field Ave.
The group explained that bollard lights will be in the drive-thru and that LED lights would be in the 18 foot overhead light posts. The new technology of LED lights would prevent spillage onto residential properties. They agreed to a six-month review of the lighting and modify if needed.
Deliveries would be scheduled from 7 to 11 a.m., with garbage pick-ups scheduled between 9 and 11 a.m. The parking lot would also have trash bins for customers who chose to eat in their cars instead of on the patio or at home.
The group is planning an 8-foot PVC fence on the west side, which borders the Field Ave. properties. In addition, there is a 25-foot green buffer with those properties. Rows of pine trees and arborvitaes will be planted along the west and south property lines for addition sound buffer.
Residents expressed safety concerns during and after construction, urging the Board to have traffic directed down Route 17 South instead of using Field Ave. to Franklin Ave. as a turnaround, which they said is a current concern. The Board agreed to post signs for all traffic looking to go north to utilize the jug-handle at the White Castle for U-turns.
The Planning Board voted unanimously to approve the plans. It will be memorialized at the January 2022 meeting.
