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 Hillsdale, 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 Hillsdale, 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:

An epic battle rages on between an area of low pressure off the coast and a frontal boundary stalled over and west of New Jersey. The front will ultimately be the victor, driving one more round of rain through the state on Thursday. While the day will start damp and dreary, it will end with big improvements.
Those changes will lead to some beautiful weather for the first weekend of summer. Oh, it is going to get very warm. But isn't that appropriate here in late June?
Thursday begins just like the last two days. Blah. Cloudy and cool. Damp and dreary. But it will end brighter and drier.
There is one more band of rain soaking Pennsylvania Thursday morning. A few showers are clipping the western edge of New Jersey, along the Delaware River. More of that rain will shift eastward over the entire state between mid-morning and mid-afternoon. Let's say wet weather will resume between about 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. for most.
The rain may be steady for a time in western New Jersey, with total additional rainfall possibly topping a quarter-inch. Closer to the coast, you're not immune to wet weather Thursday, but totals will be much lighter.
That's because the rain is expected to fizzle before reaching the coast. It looks like the storm system is going to just run out of gas.
There may be some leftover clouds and dampness heading into the dinnertime hours. But it's also wholly possible that you'll catch peeks of sun before it sets this evening.
Because of the rain and clouds and on-shore breeze, temperatures will be stuck on the cool side again. It will get no warmer than the lower 70s Thursday afternoon. A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents continues for the Jersey Shore.
Clouds will continue to thin out and conditions will continue to dry out Thursday evening. Humidity is not going to be zapped from our atmosphere this time around. But the stickiness level will be manageable overnight. We'll end up comfortable, around 60 degrees.
Looks like a beautiful late June day to me. Under partly sunny skies, high temperatures will push to about 70 degrees. The breeze will be light.
The weather looks almost completely dry too. Having said that, one or two models still paint a popup shower over NJ around midday Friday. There's no big forcing or storm system in play here, so I've removed the shower mention from my on-air forecast. But the chance for a few raindrops somewhere in the state is not necessarily zero.
Warming up even more. Most New Jersey locales will surge to the upper 80s to around 90 degrees on Saturday. Mostly sunny skies, completely dry weather, manageable humidity, and a sea breeze keeping the beaches cooler? Sounds like a phenomenal first weekend of summer.
Some extra clouds and a more prominent southerly breeze, compared to Saturday. But still a pleasant, very warm summer day. Look for mixed sunshine and clouds, with highs temperatures again in the upper 80s to around 90.
Beyond Thursday, New Jersey faces one and only one storm system and one rain chance through the rest of June. That will be a cold front on Monday.
Most long-range models are now painting a pretty slow frontal passage Monday, and therefore a pretty wet day. If all goes according to plan, we should get a stretch of bright, dry, warm, not-humid days through the middle of next week. And then heat will probably surge just in time for the 4th of July Weekend — as it seems to do every year.

There will be plenty to watch, hear and buy during Creative Bergen's second annual Arts Amble this Friday through Sunday, June 10 to 12.
Twenty Bergen County municipalities are scheduled to participate in the nonprofit group's three-day celebration of the visual and performing arts.
"We haven't quite doubled the 150 displaying artists we had last year, but we're close," said chairwoman Pat Weiman. "Bergen County is so rich in talent, but being so close to New York City it sometimes gets overlooked."
The art crawl will provide a variety of art to view and buy, as well as musical and theater performances and even martial arts demonstrations.
"It's not so much about the selling as the sharing of art," said Karen Waller, whose landscape paintings will be on display at the Ramsey and Wyckoff libraries. "We're happy that these events are helping Bergen County become known as an art center."
Displays will be housed in a combination of booths, public buildings, and artist studios such as Pottery on the Palisades in Ridgefield Park.
"This kind of event lets people know where we are, what we do," said Jennifer Shaia, one of four artists sharing the Pottery on the Palisades studio, which is on Main Street. "I think it's going to be more open this year. People are more willing to get out and look around."
The Arts Amble began last year and was inspired by western Minnesota's Meander Art Crawl and its studio tours highlighting 40 regional artists.
This year again, most of the individual Bergen arts events are free, so organizers hope for a big turnout of those looking to stroll, sit, listen and enjoy. Details are listed at artsamble.org.

PASCACK VALLEY—Westwood Mayor Ray Arroyo took to Facebook to apprise residents after what he called the most recent “no-name storm” caused flooding in the Westwood–Hillsdale area over Memorial Day weekend.
He compared his borough’s office of emergency management response with that of neighboring Hillsdale — both boroughs no stranger to flood issues — and said he is among those “again press[ing] for the only immediate relief measure that can mitigate our local flooding problem — which requires legislative intervention.”
Arroyo clarified his remarks for Pascack Press, saying “Saturday’s event was a clear demonstration of how a year-round lower elevation at the Woodcliff Lake Reservoir could avoid repetitive flooding from what should have been a manageable event.”
He said the 2.8 inches of rain that fell over 24 hours “might not have even breached the banks of the Pascack Brook had the winter elevation of 91 feet been maintained year-round.
“At the summer elevation of 94 feet, the Friday evening rain alone quickly filled that limited freeboard and began cascading over the fully deployed gates (95 feet) at around 2 a.m. Saturday.”
Arroyo said, “With 21 storms predicted this hurricane season, the reasonable expectation of replenishment makes maintaining the higher ‘summer’ water level unconscionable. In another scenario that might seem like the intentional infliction of emotional harm.”
Arroyo told residents the borough clerk had just the week before gone live with the borough’s flood page on the town website (westwoodnj.gov, Residents, Flooding Information) linking visitors with archived correspondence between the borough, the state DEP, and the water company, on the borough “requesting a year-round maximum level of 91 feet.”
Related to this, on April 5, Arroyo said, the Westwood governing body adopted a resolution supporting state Sen. Holly Schepisi’s proposed Senate bill S-790 Flood Control Measures.
“This bill would require the state’s water management facilities to include flood mitigation protocols in their standard operating procedures. Such measures could compel pre-storm release of maxed-out holding vessels, which is where the Woodcliff Lake Reservoir was on Friday night.”
Separately, the 10 mayors comprising the Pascack Valley Mayors Association — representing the residents of Emerson, Hillsdale, Park Ridge, River Vale, Montvale, Oradell, Old Tappan, Township of Washington, Westwood, and Woodcliff Lake — are meeting on flooding again next week. Arroyo promised an update.
Westwood’s flood page page offers resources under the headings Prepare, Respond, Recover.
It has links for Westwood OEM flood guide; flood insurance; flood insurance/community rating system; flood preparedness and mitigation; tracking storm conditions; flood safety; flood recovery; and flood archive.
It also explains, “Flooding occurs in Westwood along the Pascack and Musquapsink Brooks during severe rain events, although flooding may also occur in other areas of the borough due to various topographical and infrastructure conditions.”
It adds, “Stormwater runoff can elevate stream levels for hours, and even days, after the rain ends. Weather patterns to the north, including New York State, and the resultant drainage into the various brook tributaries, can result in flooding in our area well after a storm has passed.”
And it says, “With the Woodcliff Lake Reservoir to the north of Westwood, many residents consider the reservoir and dam operations to be a contributing factor to local flooding. The borough has no control over the operations of the dam or the reservoir.”
It says, “Seasonal water levels, and the release of water by Veolia (formerly Suez) prior to, during and after a storm event, are all subject to DEP regulations, which prioritize the preservation of the water asset and the structural integrity of the dam.”
Arroyo told residents:
Arroyo explained, “On March 30, I requested the DEP conduct an analysis comparing the accuracy of pre-storm rainfall predictions with actual rainfall, looking back over several years. The idea was to gauge how much of the water asset might have been lost had pre-release followed these predictions. And then compare those costs with the cost of property damage, emergency service costs, increased flood insurance premiums etc., generated by the standard operating procedure of holding the asset and accepting the resultant flooding.”
He said, “It seemed to me, if the DEP was instituting policies based upon climate change models anticipating more frequent and more severe rain events, that some significant part of the water inventory, let go in a pre-storm release, would presumably be replenished.”
He added, “Such a study might prove it more cost effective to take some sustainable financial loss on the water asset than continue to pay out damages and incur local service costs.”
The mayor said, “On April 29, I received an answer declining my request. … The dollars and cents of this cannot come close to capturing the mental trauma experienced by our flood residents. We on the governing body know that. We will continue to make sure your elected officials up the chain, the only ones who can mitigate your ongoing suffering, know that as well.”
On June 1, Arroyo told Pascack Press, “I got clarification from the borough attorney last night: The water company can manipulate the water level in the reservoir independent of the DEP. They are not precluded by law from doing so. However the DEP does not ‘recommend’ that the water company use this as a flood mitigation method.”
He said, “Whether their failure to do so is by law or by their regulatory agency’s (DEP) recommendation is largely a distinction without a difference. Neither Violia or the DEP have any incentive to move off the status quo.”
Arroyo said, “The flood residents have no leverage over the regulatory agency or the water company. The latter is a monopoly. The residents cannot take their money elsewhere. The water company cannot be shamed into operating differently.”
On June 1 we reached out to Deb Vial, spokesperson for Veolia in New Jersey, for comment. She wrote back promptly:
“The dams are operated under the strict oversight of the DEP and state regulators do not allow for the release of water ahead of storms. Regulators have good reason for this: The last time a release was ordered, the storm produced very little rainfall. That was followed by a severe drought, leaving depleted reservoirs struggling to meet the needs of millions of residents and businesses.”
She said, “The company’s reservoir system and its dams are built to protect the water supply, an essential resource, for 900,000 residents and businesses in Northern New Jersey. The reservoirs mitigate some flooding issues in the region by holding water. However, there are areas in traditional flood plains — flood plains that existed long before the reservoirs — where development should have been discouraged. That’s why the state has made buying homes in flood plains a priority through their Blue Acres program.”
Vial also said, “We understand that some areas have been impacted by development and we are working closely with municipalities to discuss to give them real time data on storms and reservoir levels. We have also offered to help them coordinate the clearing blockages in their stream beds.”

The Borough Council gave initial approval Monday night to allow the construction of self-storage units in addition to mixed-use residential units on an industrialized site north of downtown where some residents want a community center to be built.
Amending the borough’s 2020 Hillsdale-Patterson Street Redevelopment Plan to let a developer build self-storage units would bring in tax revenue without affecting the schools or emergency services.
In addition, the council approved amendments that allow residential development of 28 units per acre, which could include affordable housing, and lowered the density bonus — the maximum number of units allowed for the entire site — to 60 units from 68.
The council also approved an amendment to the redevelopment plan that would limit the height of anything constructed on the site to three stories and reduce the height limit of each floor from 14 feet to 10 feet.
Though no developer has yet been approved to build out the site, a joint venture between Claremont Development and March Development of Morristown has been designated as the conditionally appointed developer.
No agreement has yet been reached with them about what will be built, said Mayor John Ruocco. "We are still in the negotiating stage, using the redevelopment plan," he said.
The permitted uses for the area, based on the borough’s master plan, include residential mixed use, with commercial space on the ground floor and residences above, along with general public purposes and commercial services. The units could include multifamily residences, an assisted living facility, beer gardens and a licensed spa.
The redevelopment plan, adopted in October 2020, encompasses the industrial properties on Patterson Street, Knickerbocker Avenue, Brookside Place, Piermont Avenue and Prospect Place. The area was designated for redevelopment a year earlier.
The borough's affordable housing agreement with the Fair Share Housing Center and the courts requires it to build 24 affordable units in the industrial redevelopment area. Claremont/March would not be responsible for building those units, even if they sign a redevelopers' agreement with Hillsdale.
"Claremont March is only building on a portion of the industrial redevelopment zone,” Ruocco said. “However, their current plans assume they will build at least 20 units."
The changes to the redevelopment plan now go to the Planning Board, which has 45 days to provide comments. The council will then consider those comments and may adopt all, some or none of them, and will then consider final adoption of the amendments on June 14 at a second reading.
Residents are lobbying for a community center on the site. "We are the only town in Bergen County that does not have a community center," resident Louise Sharrer said at Monday’s meeting.
"Seniors are 20% of the population. Please make that a must-have priority in the development project," she said.
The Hillsdale-Patterson Street Redevelopment is one of several projects taking place in the borough. Less than a one-minute walk from the development area, a Chipotle restaurant has been approved for 441 Hillsdale Ave., where a former Friendly's was housed.

The Colorado Avalanche and Tampa Bay Lightning meet for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final Monday at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla. The Avalanche lead the series 2-0. Puck drop is set for 8 p.m. ET (ABC/ESPN+). Below, we look at the Avalanche vs. Lightning Stanley Cup Final Game 3 odds and lines, and make our expert NHL picks, predictions and bets.
The Avalanche streak into Game 3 with a pair of victories in Denver in the first 2 games. Colorado nipped Tampa Bay 4-3 in overtime in Wednesday's series opener before routing the Lightning in Game 2 Saturday by a 7-0 count.
The Lightning have dropped 2 of their last 3 playoff games following a loss after rebounding successfully in 18 consecutive postseason setbacks prior to Game 2 against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Odds provided by Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated at 6:47 a.m. ET.
Darcy Kuemper (8-2-0, 2.44 GAA, .901 SV%, 1 SO - postseason) vs. Andrei Vasilevskiy (12-7-0, 2.60 GAA, .918 SV%, 1 SO - postseason)
Kuemper picked a tremendous time for his best performance of the postseason. The Canadian goaltender turned aside each of the 16 shots he faced in Game 2 for his 1st shutout of the playoffs and the 2nd postseason shutout of his career.
Vasilevskiy was buried for 7 goals on 30 shots in Game 2, and he has yielded 11 total goals on just 68 shots in this series. He has also allowed 3 or more goals in 4 of his last 8 outings.
Lightning 3, Avalanche 2
The LIGHTNING (-108) are short dogs on home ice, and that likely is for two reasons. One, the Avalanche manhandled them in Game 2, and two, Colorado has won all 7 of its postseason games on the road. All good things come to an end, however. Vasilevskiy will be vastly improved in Game 3 after getting blitzed for 7 markers Saturday, and he will be the reason Tampa makes this a series.
The Lightning +1.5 (-290) will cost 2.9 times your potential return. There is just no value there. If you like Tampa on home ice, just play it straight up.
The Over has cashed in the first 2 games of this series, but UNDER 5.5 (-130) is the way to go in Game 3.
Tampa Bay should be better defensively on home ice, feeding off its crowd for a much-needed boost. Look for Vasilevskiy to get back to his world-class self in this one, which will be the lowest-scoring game of the series.
