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 Madison, 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 Madison, 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:

Plenty of teams talk the talk about sharing the basketball and about how much every member of the roster plays an integral role in the group’s fortunes, but Delbarton this season has definitely walked that talk.
Walking, quite literally, from a spot on the bench to the scorer’s table to check in as one of the more valued reserves in New Jersey.
Junior guard Lincoln Zimmermann rarely ever starts for Delbarton, thus is merely a clapping spectator during all the pregame fanfare of starting-lineup announcements. But no worries there, because he receives his share of hardy claps sooner or later.
Zimmermann came off the bench to help top-seeded Delbarton carve out a double-digit lead in the first quarter on its way to a 58-36 victory over ninth-seeded Madison for its second straight Morris County Tournament title and the program’s eighth overall Saturday evening at County College of Morris in Randolph.
And after the Green Wave (20-4) had secured that championship repeat with near-surgical precision, super sub Zimmermann was named MVP of the tournament by averaging 12.5 points in four tournament games
Senior forward Nick Modugno and junior guard Michael Van Raaphorst scored 13 points apiece and Zimmermann contributed 10 points and also three rebounds, three assists and two steals to become an instant poster boy for every reserve in Morris County who consider his role incidental.
“It just says that we’re really well-rounded. Everyone plays super well with each other and we have great chemistry,” Zimmermann said. “No matter who gets in, everyone has been able to play with each other.”
Delbarton did that in the opening quarter with a sense of precision that would have made the acrobats from Cirque du Soleil feel clumsy.
The Green Wave executed with that precision on both ends of the floor to force eight first-quarter turnovers on their way to a 17-0 lead that was finally interrupted on a 3-pointer from Madison junior Jackson Maloney with seven seconds left in the period. Madison (18-8) cuts its mistakes considerably the following period, though Delbarton kept on motoring to build a 34-8 leas at the half.
Zimmermann scored nine points in that opening half while Van Raaphorst scored seven and also contributed three of his five rebounds, two of his four assists and all three of his steals, and Mike Vaccaro dropped in six of his eight points, pulled down three of his six rebounds and had two of his four assists. All told, give Green Wavers compiled multiple assists.
Maloney finished with 14 points and Tommy Bland had 12 for Madison, making just its second MCT final appearance and seeking a first title. The young Dodgers made a remarkable run to reach this game as the ninth seed, but hit a wall against an opponent with more big-game experience.
“It was awesome. We had so much energy coming out and our defense was lights out,” Modugno said. “It was all about energy and defense. We did that and just kept our foot on the gas the whole game.

“It’s a big stage, big moment. It takes a little while to get into it. We know that from last year,” he said. “This year we kind of already knew the ins and outs.”
Madison was faced with the chase of their lives after that scintillating start by the Green Wave, but it did not shrink from the task. Maloney epitomized the Dodgers’ no-quit code in the third quarter with eight of his 14 points and also three rebounds, an assist and one steal. Bland scored seven points to help Madison outscore Delbarton, 17-12, in the period.
Clearly, though, Delbarton had already stated its case and did so with a lot of different people stepping up to stir the pot.
“They care about each other and they work hard together and they’re always pulling for each other. There are no egos involved,” said Delbarton’s Dan Whalen, who earned his sixth county title as head coach of the Green Wave.
“These guys have been really focused on what we’re doing. We’ve played really well the last two weeks,” he said. “They were really dialed in and executed. Plus, they’re really unselfish. All of our guys contribute in some way.”
Delbarton has now won eight straight games and 13 of their last 15 as it prepares for the North, Non-Public A tournament as the No. 2 seed. The Green Wave will play one more recently added regular-season game Tuesday against Immaculata in preparation of the playoffs.
“We’re in a really good rhythm. I don’t want five days off and run the risk of getting stale,” Whalen said.
Madison also is a No. 2 seed in North Jersey, Section 2, Group 2 and will be home against Newark Central in the first round Tuesday. The Dodgers will be drawing upon their performances in wins against top-seeded West Morris, fifth-seeded Mendham and eighth-seeded Morris Knolls.
Meanwhile, Delbarton will just try to maintain the level of play it has now for several weeks running.
“We have our game plan. Not really gonna change it for anybody at this point. We just do what we do,” Modugno said.
We’ll give the floor now to the off-the-bench MVP for the last word on that matter:
“We all just want the best for each other,” Zimmermann said. “No one cares about their own stats. We just want to win. That’s our main motive.”

Heather Shelby and her family, who lived at 91 Woodland Road in Madison since 1976, made the difficult decision to sell the home after her mother was diagnosed with dementia.
“My mother first forgot who I was five years ago,” said Heather Shelby. “I lost any lucid time she had left during the pandemic when her care facility went into complete isolation.”
It was a tumultuous time, worsened by the fact that their home — known as the Wingate House — was historic, built in the 18th century. As the eighth family that had ever lived there, the Shelbys not only believed they were caretakers of a local landmark, but some of their best memories of their mother were bound to the home. They sought a buyer that would promise to preserve the Colonial-era home where some believe General George Washington marched by en route to ending the war in Yorktown, Virginia.
“Mentally she‘s not here. But I always thought as long as the house is there a piece of her would always be there,” Shelby said.
So the Shelby family sold the home this past April to Steve McCann, owner of Historic Homes by McCann, a development company that specializes in restoration. All seemed to go according to plan. However, Madison’s town historian Scott Spelker informed her family weeks ago that the new owner had applied for a demolition permit. Needless to say, the Shelby family felt betrayed.
“We left antiques with them, including an antique cradle my mom used to rock us in because they had just had a baby,” Shelby said. “We left a doll that my mom had handmade.”
Madison has a small collection of surviving 18th-century homes. One of them — the Sayre House at 31 Ridgedale Avenue — is individually listed on the National Register. Five others on Ridgedale Ave, have landmark protection as part of the Bottle Hill Historic District.
The Wingate Home was never landmarked, although the family had considered it. “We talked about that as a family and we were concerned about how much time it would take,” Shelby said. “We had to put time and money toward my mom’s care. If we weren’t facing what we were facing, we would have.”
Shelby also said that, because the house was in need of repairs, she feared a landmark designation could scare off potential suitors who might not want to deal with a preservation commission’s oversight.
“It didn’t seem like the best way to get the house sold,” Shelby said.
A handful of homes in Morris County share a common history as places where Revolutionary War soldiers and generals were quartered. New Jersey was a major battleground because it was located between the two strongholds, Philadelphia and New York City. At the Sayre House, there is evidence that General Anthony Wayne was billeted there. Most famous is Jockey Hollow in Morristown where General George Washington overwintered. The Shelbys believe the Wingate House could have been used as an inoculation clinic based on a painting that was commissioned by the home’s first owner. Though that claim hasn’t been substantiated yet.
Without a local, state, or national landmark designation, there is no legal maneuver that can prevent the demolition. The town historian Spelker, who organized an online petition, has been trying to persuade McCann, even inviting him to a public forum.
“I was just trying to appeal to him that he could go down in history as the guy who saved a Revolutionary War house in Madison,” Spelker said. “I want to put the word out there for everyone to know. Because with enough groundswell of support maybe, just maybe, the builder will decide not to tear it down.”
The news of this proposed demolition comes in the wake of the loss of an 18th-century home in Maplewood, Jersey Digs reported. Spelker, who is a realtor, said that tearing down a historic home on a large acreage for the purpose of building a subdivision is common. But tearing down one a small lot and replacing it with a newly built one is a fairly new phenomenon in real estate.
“It doesn’t usually make financial sense to tear them down,” Spelker said.
Since publication, Mayor Richard Conley published a statement claiming that the township worked with McCann to save the home, but said township’s construction official “determined the house was stucturally unsound and unsafe.”
“The poor structural integrity also made relocating the house to another site impossible,” Conley said.
McCann told the Madison Eagle that after two different inspections, it was determined that the historic building didn’t comply with the current building code, meaning the renovations “would be so extensive that any historical components of the house would be lost.”

The Madison Board of Education predicts a slight drop in school-related taxes for next year, but it's hoping residents will approve an increase of hundreds of dollars later in the year to update local facilities.
Here's a look at the district's fiscal plans:
Superintendent Mark Schwarz last week led a presentation at a board meeting of the tentative $57 million budget proposed for the 2023-24 school year. The plan proposes a 9% spending increase over last year for the pre-K-to-12 district, but with state aid expected to rise and the district tapping reserve funds, the proposal calls for just a 1.8% increase in the school tax levy.
While the rate at which property is taxed will rise, the average homeowner's bill would dip slightly. That's because the district also expects to save $1 million after leaving the state employee health plan last year − money that, by state law, must go toward tax relief. In the end, officials said, the budget would decrease the annual school tax bill by $3, based on the district's average assessed home value of $690,702.
"It's not a big decrease, but it's not an increase, so that's pretty good news," Schwarz said.
The budget is scheduled for public comment and a final vote on adoption on May 2.
In the fall, voters will consider a $79 million referendum that would have a far bigger impact on local schools and taxes.
The three-part ballot question starts with a $48.3 million request for improvements that are "need-to-haves, not nice-to-haves," according to board member Pam Yousey, who presented the referendum proposal at the meeting.
'A proud day for Madison':NJ borough's rare Lincoln portrait unveiled at Smithsonian
Priority projects that would be covered by the first question include the replacement of floors, lighting and heating systems throughout the district, a new roof for Madison High School and air-conditioning for classrooms.
The second and third questions, with projects grouped by priority, would add another $12.8 million and $18.3 million, respectively. The proposals are linked, so voters would only be able to vote on Question 2 if they approve Question 1, and on Question 3 if they approve the first two. Some of the spending under Questions 1 and 2 would be covered by state aid.
Including that aid, the cost for taxpayers calculates to $100 annually for each $10 million approved by voters. If the entire referendum is approved, the average homeowner would see a $790 annual increase.
The district, which also serves high school students from Harding, estimates enrollment of 2,469 students next year, down from the current 2,554. Harding enrollment has decreased in recent years, while Madison is on the rise, Schwarz said
Yousey said a vote on the referendum had originally been planned for this month. But the district pulled back on the timeline after its business administrator left and state officials requested changes and additional information on portions of the referendum.
Pending state approval, the district hopes to conduct the referendum vote in September.

The Roxbury School District will begin the next school year with a young new superintendent who brings extensive experience in supporting the mental and emotional health of students in three New Jersey counties.
Frank Santora, currently an assistant superintendent for pupil personnel services in the Madison School District, has been hired to lead Roxbury. His unanimous appointment was announced at the Monday meeting of the township Board of Education.
Santora "has broad and deep experience as an educator, with a focus on expanding and maximizing learning opportunities for all students," board President Leo Coakley said in the announcement. "His work has included bolstering support for both special education and general education students."
Santora, 38, who previously worked in the Saddle Brook and Westfield school districts, will begin his new post on July 1 at a salary of $205,000, public records show.
He will replace the retiring Loretta Radulic, who announced her retirement in January after seven years leading the district, one of Morris County's largest with more than 3,000 students.
In addition to announcing Santora's hiring, the board on Monday offered a moment of silence for Radulic's son, Cameron, 24, who died on Saturday.
"Roxbury will forever hold a special place in my heart," Radulic wrote in her retirement letter. "I am grateful for having the honor to lead this amazing district."

Prior to Madison, Santora served as the director of special services and building principal in the Saddle Brook school district, and as a school psychologist and member of the child study team in the Westfield's public school district.
He earned his doctoral degree in educational leadership from Saint Elizabeth University in 2014.
