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 Hialeah Gardens, 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 Hialeah Gardens, 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.
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:

A pair of nursing home investors scooped up a Hialeah Gardens facility for $43.2 million.
Bent Philipson and Andrew Bronfeld bought Signature HealthCare Center of Waterford at 8333 West Okeechobee Road from an affiliate of Los Angeles-based Arba Group, records show.
The deal for the 214-unit facility breaks down to roughly $202,000 per unit.
Philipson has invested in South Florida facilities in the past. He is the founder of Long Island-based Philosophy Care Centers, a skilled nursing homes consultant servicing New York and New Jersey, according to LinkedIn accounts for Philipson and Philosophy Care. Bronfeld’s LinkedIn lists him as the Miami-based regional director for elder care provider Ventura Services.
Bronfeld, through an affiliate, bought a 20 percent stake in the Hialeah Gardens facility. Philipson used five entities to purchase the property, with each of his affiliates buying from a 2 percent to 39 percent stake in the nursing home, records show. A seventh entity that acquired a 0.2 percent stake is led by Naomi Tessler of Brooklyn.
The buyers assumed a $19.5 million mortgage on the property from the seller and bumped up the amount to $59.8 million. The financing was reassigned to VNB New York.
The three-story building was completed in 1986 on an almost 2-acre site overlooking a lake, according to property records.
Arba Group, led by Ira Smedra and Jacob Wintner, had paid $29.3 million for the facility in 2019, meaning it flipped it for a 47 percent gain in three years.
South Florida, as well as the rest of the state, have historically been retirement meccas, with nursing homes a coveted investment.
Philipson has been betting heavily on the asset class.
Late last year, he bought a stake in Claridge House at 13900 Northeast Third Court near North Miami, and Regents Park at Aventura at 18905 Northeast 25th Avenue. Philipson bought the properties for a combined $33.4 million, in partnership with Englewood Cliffs, N.J.-based CareRite Centers.
In 2020, Philipson paid $24 million for North Dade Nursing And Rehab Center at 1207 and 1235 Northeast 135th Street in North Miami. That topped off his two-year splurge on six nursing homes for a combined $100 million. Included in that spree was his $19.8 million purchase of South Dade Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at 17475 South Dixie Highway in Palmetto Bay, and Golden Glades Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at 220 Sierra Drive in Miami.
For its part, CareRite also beefed up its portfolio last year, paying $35 million for Coral Reef Subacute Care Center at 9869 Southwest 152nd Street in an unincorporated area of south Miami-Dade County.

A private soccer facility in Hialeah Gardens will be redeveloped into a self-storage facility as the first project under H&M Development’s new self-storage joint venture that has $100 million in projects lined up.
Triangle Soccer LLC, managed by Carmen De Abreu in Doral, recently sold the 2.2-acre sports facility at 10953 N.W. 138th St. for $4.7 million to Hialeah Gardens Storage Associates, a joint venture between Aventura-based H&M Development and Chicago-based Blue Vista Capital Management. Daniel Masveyraud, a principal at H&M Development, said they obtained city approval to redevelop the property with a 97,000-square-foot self-storage facility.
Designed by Deerfield Beach-based architect Kenneth Carlson, the facility would be managed by national operator Extra Space Storage. Masveyraud said they plan to break ground in April 2023.
This is the first of what he anticipates will be a series of self-storage development deals between H&M Development and Blue Vista, which have raised enough capital for $100 million in development across several projects.
Masveyraud said they have another site under contract in Hialeah and are closing in on a deal for a property in Miami.
Self-storage is one of the most attractive asset types to build because there’s a favorable spread between construction costs and the value of the income they generate, he said.
“There’s a lot of momentum in Hialeah Gardens with a lot of projects,” Masveyraud said. “There’s a huge Publix and Homegoods coming and there are also close to 600 apartments coming up. The market is ripe for self-storage.”
In the past, H&M Development constructed office buildings like Beacon Tower in Aventura and it was a contract builder for other developers in the self-storage arena, said Joey Dornbusch, another principal at the company.
“We built them and realized self-storage was an up-and-coming industry,” Dornbusch said. “I said to my father, ‘Why don’t we start with self-storage? It’s very profitable and I see everybody making a lot of money in it.’”
H&M Development had numerous properties throughout Florida under contract for self-storage projects earlier this year, however, some of them fell through because the rise in interest rates reduced the level of financial returns for those deals, Dornbusch said. It is set to flip one property and develop three of them, focusing on the locations with the highest returns and the most demand from customers, he added.
Blue Vista has invested in more than 45 self-storage projects with nearly $500 million in capitalization.
“Blue Vista’s partnership with H&M is driven by our self-storage investment strategy of acquiring and developing the latest generation assets located in supply-constrained markets with population growth particularly in the southwest and southeast U.S.,” stated Rachel Woolf, a senior VP with Blue Vista. “We believe that H&M’s significant capabilities in developing and constructing Class-A institutional projects pairs well with our investment management experience in the sector.”

EverWest Real Estate Investors bought a newly built warehouse in Hialeah Gardens for $43.2 million, continuing its buying spree in South Florida.
Denver-based EverWest bought the 164,298-square-foot industrial building at 10900 Northwest 146th Street from Flightway Fifteen, according to Jose Sasson, the buyer’s broker. It was an off-market deal.
Sasson and Roberto Susi, both of Axiom Capital Advisors, represented EverWest. Ralph Merritt Jr. of Commercial Property Group represented the seller.
The Class A building sits on 8.5 acres and has 21 bays, each roughly 7,800 square feet; 30-foot clear heights; and seven parking spaces per unit, Sasson said. The property is vacant, as it was just completed.
Flightway Fifteen, which is tied to Josue and Monica Pimenta with a Coral Gables address, bought the development site for $3.3 million in 2016, according to records.
EverWest, which invests in various property types, is led by CEO Rick Stone, with Managing Director Tyler Williams overseeing Southeast acquisitions.
South Florida’s industrial market is one of the most robust in the region, prompting hefty investment appetite. High demand and a dwindling supply of developable land have pushed up rents and decreased vacancies.
In the first quarter, Miami-Dade County’s vacancy rate dropped to 2.6 percent from 6 percent in the same period of last year, according to a JLL report. The average asking rent increased to $11.61 a square foot, year-over-year, from $7.60 a square foot.

A Boston-based private equity firm is continuing its shopping spree for grocery-anchored retail properties in South Florida.
Longpoint Realty Partners has acquired El Paraiso, a two-building shopping center at 1700 and 1800 West 68th Street in Hialeah, for $43.2 million, or about $317 a square foot, in an off-market deal, the firm said Monday.
Anchored by a Sedano’s grocery store, the 9-acre site is 98 percent occupied, according to Longpoint. Other tenants in its 136,000 square feet include University Healthcare, Regions Bank and Pet Supermarket.
In a statement, Longport principal Dwight Angelini framed the deal as an opportunity to break into a highly sought-after infill market. Built in the 1980s, the Hialeah property joins Longpoint’s portfolio of South Florida shopping centers that includes properties in Pembroke Pines and Naranja, which the firm acquired in 2019 and 2020 for $37.5 million and $11.7 million, respectively.
The sellers are Elpara Inc. and Elcanar Inc., entities managed by Antonio Rodriguez and Jesus Gonzalez of Miami, records show. Elcanar acquired the 1800 West 68th Street property in 1988 for $1.8 million and completed the 62,000-square-foot building a year later. Elpara acquired the neighboring 74,000-square-foot building at 1700 West 68th Street in 2000 for an unknown amount.
Investors are circling grocery-anchored retail plazas throughout South Florida, including in Hialeah. Last month, Seritage Growth Properties banked $6.2 million in a single day when it bought Westland Gateway Plaza, a Hialeah shopping center anchored by Aldi and Bed Bath & Beyond, among others, for $22.1 million then immediately flipped it to Sunny Isles Beach-based RK Centers for $28.3 million.
Also last month, Toronto-based Slate Grocery REIT paid $425 million for a portfolio of 14 grocery-anchored shopping centers in Georgia, Florida and North Carolina, according to an investment summary. Included in the deal were three shopping centers anchored by Publix grocery stores in Miramar, Dania Beach and Palm Beach Gardens and a retail plaza anchored by a Fresh Market store in Pembroke Pines, records show.
In June, El Paso-based River Oaks Properties paid $25.5 million for a Delray Beach complex anchored by Joseph’s Classic Market, while in Plantation, an affiliate of Charles Ladd’s Barron Real Estate bought a Food Fair-anchored shopping center for $38.4 million.
