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 Hutchinson, 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 Hutchinson, 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:

Drew Hutchison, who spent time in the Yankees’ farm system in 2019, signed with the Tigers for the second time in his career. This news comes from MLB Trade Rumors (via the ...
Right-hander Drew Hutchison is back with the Tigers on a new minor league deal after electing free agency last week, as indicated on the team’s transactions log at MLB.com. Detroit designated Hutchison for assignment on May 11, and he elected free agency a couple days later. He’s already made one appearance with the team’s Triple-A club, and with so many injuries on the big league pitching staff, it’s feasible he’ll get another opportunity in the Majors before too long.
Want to bet on MLB?
The 31-year-old Hutchison showed some promise with the Blue Jays early in his career, but he’s settled into a journeyman career, having now pitched with five big league clubs (Jays, Phillies, Rangers, Pirates, Tigers) plus another four Triple-A affiliates for big league clubs (Twins, Dodgers, Angels, Yankees).
Hutchinson has a career 31-27 record in 117 games in the major leagues. During this time, he’s recorded 440 strikeouts and accumulated a 4.60 ERA. While it’s unclear if he’ll join the MLB roster immediately, the Tigers could use him. Detroit has a depleted pitching staff currently, with Eduardo Rodriguez, Matt Manning, Casey Mize, Tyler Alexander, Spencer Turnbull and ex-Yankee Michael Pineda all on the disabled list.

Of the athletes competing for gold in girls pole vault at the 2022 Meet of Champions, four of them had cleared 12 feet at one point or another this season.
Pompton Lakes senior Emma Keating entered the day with the highest PR among the four expected to be in significant contention, perhaps making her the favorite heading into the MOC.
Going head to head with Montclair senior Elizabeth Fitzgerald for the gold, Keating rose to the occasion, winning the state title in pole vault at 12-0, on attempts, on Saturday at Franklin High School.
While some athletes might have been intimidated going up against a field so loaded with talent, Keating relished the opportunity to compete against the absolute best athletes the state has to offer.
I love it,” said an emphatic Keating on the talent level among this year’s girls pole vaulters. “Especially for a meet like this, because I know a lot of the girls. So, it’s so nice being able to compete against them... To be able to come together at these state meets, I personally love it. All the competition -- it’s so much fun.”
While neither Fitzgerald nor Keating was able to clear 12-0, Keating would secure the gold after requiring fewer attempts to clear 11-6, with the cool weather and moderate wind clearly having a negative impact on the competition.
“I have to give all my coaches credit,” said a humble Keating after securing the state title. “They’re just amazing.”
Competing with the wind at their backs, the girls pole vaulters had difficulty throughout the day with anchoring the pole as well as staying on line while clearing the bar.
“It is more difficult. In preparation, I usually just warm up more,” said Keating on the extra challenge that the steady and significant wind provided in Somerset on Saturday.
“It was a crosswind and a tailwind. I don’t know how they did over there,” added Keating, gesturing to the boys’ side of the event. “But it was crazy.”
In somewhat of a surprise, Montgomery’s Lauren Cashman, who won the event last season, failed to clear 11-6 and instead ended up with a sixth-place finish. With three of the state’s top vaulters set to graduate this Spring, Cashman will look to make it back to the top in 2023 without Keating standing in her way.
GIRLS POLE VAULT RESULTS

2-Elizabeth Fitzgerald, Montclair, 12-0

Kayvon Thibodeaux has the most upside of any player in the 2022 NFL draft class.

Kayvon Thibodeaux has the most upside of any player in the 2022 NFL draft class. The New York Giants plan to harness the No. 5 overall pick's natural ability and turn him into the league's best defensive rookie.
"He was just such a great fit for us in [Don "Wink" Martindale's] defense," outside linebackers coach Drew Wilkins told reporters. "He has all the skill sets we look for. He can be a dominant edge-setter, explosive, violent, relentless pass-rusher and then everything else you can see that is required."
The fact Thibodeaux was available when the Giants first selected is amazing unto itself.
Thibodeaux won the Morris Trophy in 2020, which goes to the Pac-12's best offensive or defensive lineman. He entered last season as the favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick in 2022, but his draft stock took a few hits along the way.
Thibodeaux suffered a high-ankle sprain in Oregon's first contest and played through it for most of his final season on campus. As a result, he finished with only seven sacks, but that only told part of the story.
Throughout the NFL draft process, matters worsened as anonymous quotes surfaced from multiple outlets.
"Does he like playing in the NFL, or like the NFL lifestyle and what that entails?" a scout questioned in a conversation with Go Long's Bob McGinn. "If you put [Aidan] Hutchinson’s heart in Thibodeaux’s body then you’d have Myles Garrett."
Meanwhile, NFL Draft Network's Tony Pauline reported:
"In addition to concerns about his effort, there are also questions from some inside the scouting community and in league circles about Thibodeaux’s desire to be great. As one source close to Thibodeaux told me, he’s 'acting like he’s already made it rather than someone who really wants it.' Another source close to Thibodeaux said, 'He has the ability to be great, yet he may never do what it takes to reach his ultimate level of ability.'"
Ultimately, four defenders heard their names called before Thibodeaux.
The Jacksonville Jaguars chose Travon Walker with the first overall pick. The Detroit Lions followed suit by taking Hutchinson at No. 2. The Houston Texans continued the early run by drafting cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. at No. 3, and the New York Jets took fellow defensive back Ahmad Gardner at No. 4.
However, where they were drafted doesn't make any of them a better bet to win NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year over Thibodeaux, whose natural ability and landing spot make him the ideal candidate.
As of late June, Hutchinson is the only heavier betting favorite to win the award, according to DraftKings. Walker, Green Bay Packers linebacker Quay Walker, Baltimore Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton, New York Jets edge Jermaine Johnson II and Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Devin Lloyd follow, albeit they're comfortably behind the top two.
Hutchinson is essentially being positioned as the face of the Lions organization, which is why he's the odds-on favorite for Defensive Rookie of the Year. He is a potential culture-changer if his time with the Michigan Wolverines is any indication of future success.
At the same time, Detroit is young along its defensive front and lacks pass-rushing punch. Hutchinson should help that group as it grows in Year 2 under defensive play-caller Aaron Glenn.
Walker has the advantage of being the No. 1 overall pick and an elite athletic profile, but he's far from a polished prospect. He needs to learn how to be a consistent edge-rusher.
Both Stingley and Gardner will be tasked with covering opposing top wide receivers, so they will likely experience their share of ups and downs. Walker and Lloyd must show they can be every-down defenders. Hamilton is capable of contributing at multiple levels in various roles, though he currently resides among a loaded safety group alongside Marcus Williams and Chuck Clark. Johnson can be an instant-impact run defender as he continues to develop as a pass-rusher.
What separates Thibodeaux from the rest of this year's top defensive prospects? It starts with his ability to get to opposing quarterbacks.
"Thibodeaux checks every box for a high-end pass-rusher with potential through the roof," Bleacher Report scout Derrik Klassen wrote in his evaluation. "Primarily a speed-rusher, Thibodeaux shows threatening burst off the snap and accelerates as well as anyone through his next few steps, regularly giving him the outside edge against offensive tackles.
"While Thibodeaux's hand usage and pass-rushing plan could use some development, he already has the speed, strength and bend to regularly win around the outside in rare fashion. Few players can bend and explode the way he can."
Translatable traits are what scouts and evaluators want to see. Thibodeaux doesn't have the same kind of heft as Myles Garrett working off the edge, but he's also an elite athlete. It isn't just straight-line quickness, either. Thibodeaux displays excellent lateral quickness and agility.
“He’s the guy," Giants guard Shane Lemieux, who played with Thibodeaux at Oregon, told reporters. "He’s a real dude.”
Real dudes can still be rendered ineffective if they aren't properly utilized. Fortunately, Thibodeaux now plays for one of the NFL's best and most aggressive defensive play-callers. Prior to last year's injury-plagued campaign, the Ravens finished in the top seven in total defense during their three campaigns under Martindale.
"Puts a lot of people at the line of scrimmage," an opposing scout told ESPN's Jordan Raanan. "He doesn't coach scared."
The approach essentially boils down to a numbers game. The defense disguises its looks so it can get favorable matchups. Still, the players must take advantage of those matchups once they become available.
The Giants are already extremely strong along their defensive interior with Leonard Williams and Dexter Lawrence leading the way. They needed more of an edge presence and landed one with Thibodeaux.
Unliked others in the class, Martindale doesn't need his rookie to be the focal point.
"Just to be Kayvon," the defensive coordinator responded when asked what he expects of Thibodeaux this fall.
With ultra-aggressive defensive game plans, a strong defensive front and Thibodeaux's propensity to create havoc in opposing backfields, the Giants have the right combination to develop this year's No. 5 overall pick into a superstar.

NEWARK, NJ — The following news release comes courtesy of New Community Corporation. Learn more about posting announcements or events to your local Patch site.
New Community Career & Technical Institute (NCCTI) and Tremco have partnered to introduce the Rising Stars program to students in the NCCTI Building Trades Specialist program. Rising Stars aims to introduce students to a variety of aspects of the construction industry and connect them to job opportunities.
David Hutchinson came up with the concept for Rising Stars. He works for Tremco in Deep Energy Retrofit Development, which means his division works to retrofit existing buildings by putting new panels on existing structures and upgrading HVAC systems while limiting tenant disruption. The ultimate goal is to reduce carbon and energy consumption and the focus is primarily on affordable housing in the Northeast. His work brought about the idea for Rising Stars.
"I wanted to do something as an outreach and be more engaged in the communities that we operate in," Hutchinson said.
He pitched his idea to the president of Tremco in the summer of 2020 and received support. After many conversations internally and externally, Hutchinson was able to launch Rising Stars in March 2022 under the umbrella of Tremco.
NCCTI is one of three educational institutions to host the Rising Stars program for its inaugural cohort. The others are in Brooklyn, N.Y. and Boston, Mass.
"The program at its core is trying to expand the views and the opportunities that are present in the construction industry," Hutchinson said. "We start with design and have an architect come in and really talk about what goes into sustainable green design or future design of projects and then also the career paths. So it always is an educational format but also almost kind of a career day at the same time."
Guest speakers, who are volunteers Hutchinson has connected with during his career, visit once per week and share their experiences with students. In addition to Tremco, one of the larger groups involved is Turner Construction.
"We start very high level with design and we work all the way through to the trades where it concludes with trade day where we have people from the union hall and job opportunities presented," Hutchinson said. "So for the participants that show the ability or have the want to, there is an opportunity to actually get employed by some of the speakers."
That type of access is extremely valuable for students looking to launch their careers.
"We are proud to be a strategic partner with Tremco and this program is an excellent opportunity for our Building Trades students to meet industry experts across trades/professions while undertaking their studies at NCCTI," said New Community Chief Operating Officer Fred Hunter.
NCCTI Director Dr. Sylvia McCray said Rising Stars got students excited about building trades and the possible career paths available to them.
"The program not only helps students to understand the business but also develops that connection and building in their creativity of thinking outside the box, breaking that stereotype that it's just one job or one type of job," she said.
The Building Trades class had more females than males, challenging another stereotype.
"Allowing women to see themselves in nontraditional roles and that they're able to build career paths and make a substantial amount of money taking care of themselves and their families, that was really important to me," McCray said.
The students were engaged and had positive experiences.
"I was impressed with the program because it exposed us to new technologies and new things that are happening in the construction industry," said Chinedu Arisa. "For me, it changed my perspective about construction."
Nicole Wilson raved about the program, saying it was very informative, had a hands-on component and brought in "incredible" speakers. She said she learned a lot and the program inspired her to apply for a job at Tremco. She landed an interview and is now waiting for her start date.
"Rising Stars helped me to a better future," she said.
NCCTI Building Trades Instructor Yusto Awich saw his students benefit from Rising Stars.
"The program is well structured and coordinated well," he said. "The professionals who came were prepared and engaged the students well."
McCray and Hutchinson plan to bring the Rising Stars program back to NCCTI in the fall. Hutchinson's goal is to have two sessions per year, one in the fall and one in the spring. He has been asked to launch additional sites in other geographic locations, including Syracuse, N.Y., Orlando, Fl. and areas of Texas.
McCray is happy that NCCTI got to be one of the first institutions to expose students to the program.
"I'm really glad that we were able to show students that there's more out there. And to whet that curiosity," she said.
NCCTI is an accredited post-secondary career and technical institution that offers the following programs: Automotive Technician, Diesel Technician, Building Trades Specialist, Clinical Medical Assistant, Patient Care Technician, Community Healthcare Worker, Culinary Arts Specialist and Business & Computer Technologies. NCCTI also operates a comprehensive Financial Opportunity Center and Bridges to Career Opportunities Program sponsored by the local and national Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) offices.
