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 Mahwah, 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 Mahwah, 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:

The Port Authority is activating electronic tolls at the bridge. But the new system has a drawback. FORT LEE, NJ — In an effort to continue modernizing its tolling infrastructure, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is activating a new cashless toll collection system at the George Washington Bridge on July 10, the agency said in a news release."Cashless transactions are no longer a thing of the future in this age of touchless financial transactions, and for non-E-ZPass customers that convenience of modern...
FORT LEE, NJ — In an effort to continue modernizing its tolling infrastructure, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is activating a new cashless toll collection system at the George Washington Bridge on July 10, the agency said in a news release.
"Cashless transactions are no longer a thing of the future in this age of touchless financial transactions, and for non-E-ZPass customers that convenience of modern life has now come to our 90-year-old George Washington Bridge," agency Chair Kevin O'Toole said in the news release. "We are extremely pleased with the activation of this best-in-class, all-electronic technology that will assure quick, accurate, electronic toll billing at the GWB."
A drawback with the new system, however, is that the carpool discount plan will end, due to the "impracticality," the Port Authority said, of electronically determining the number of passengers in a vehicle. E-ZPass customers still receive toll discounts that are less than the bill-by-mail rate, the agency added.
"Cashless is good, but carpool-less is bad," 5th District Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D) said in a statement, adding that the technology exists in other states that captures how many people are in a vehicle. "It doesn't make any sense to me, and it's ridiculous that the Port Authority is trying to saddle hard-working commuters with new tolls right now, especially at a time when we're trying to make life more affordable."
The Port Authority transitioned to all-electronic tolling at the Holland Tunnel in 2020, and the bridge, which is used by more trucks to cross the Hudson River into New York City than the agency's other two Hudson River crossings combined, will be the largest and busiest of the three crossings to implement the new toll system, the agency said.
A new cashless toll system at the agency's remaining Hudson River crossing, the Lincoln Tunnel, will be implemented by the end of the year. All three systems were approved in 2019 by the agency's Board of Commissioners, the agency said.
Once the systems are activated, motorists will not need to stop or slow on approach; overhead cameras will capture license plate images to ensure toll payment by mail for non-E-ZPass customers, all as part of an effort to improve traffic congestion. Additionally, a new "Tolls NY" smartphone app will give users access to customer service for tolling transactions, the agency said.
A GoFundMe page organized by Stephen Halpern's father has raised over $219,000 for medical costs.

FORT LEE, NJ— School art teacher Stephen Halpern, who has engendered a passion for art his students and touched countless lives, spent at least five weeks in a cardiac arrest-induced coma, his family, who is from Fort Lee, wrote on a GoFundMe page that has raised over $219,000 so far to help cover medical expenses.
As of Tuesday, in fact, more than 1,300 friends, relatives, classmates and others donated to the GoFundMe campaign, which was organized by Halpern's father Jerry Halpern on May 22. In an email update to Patch on Sunday, Jerry Halpern said that Stephen is still in a coma, and that he and his family are hopeful he will emerge soon.
"We have been so humbled by the outpouring of love and support for Stephen," Jerry Halpern said in the email.
In an earlier update on June 1, the family wrote that Stephen Halpern had stabilized medically and was moved to a long-term acute care hospital after being in an ICU for three and a half weeks.
"We are steadfast in knowing in our hearts that he will recover. The world needs Stephen back," his family wrote. "We look forward to the day when he is fully healed."
Halpern's family wrote that asking for financial support is not in their nature, though they want to make sure Stephen Halpern has the best possible care once he is discharged from the hospital.
"Any donation, large or small, would benefit Stephen's recovery," his family wrote, adding that caring for him in the years to come could cost several hundred thousands of dollars.
Funds raised, his family wrote, will cover hospital costs beyond Stephen Halpern's insurance coverage, skilled nursing care and rehabilitation in the future, and meals and transportation for him and his family.
"We firmly believe that all of the positivity we have received in the past few weeks has given Stephen the strength to continue fighting," his family wrote. "It might be a long road ahead, but Stephen is a resilient fighter, and he will make it through this stronger than ever."

Parsippany, NJ, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lincoln Educational Services Corporation ( LINC), a national leader in specialized technical training, marked its 75th anniversary on Thursday, May 5th, at the Avenue A Club in Newark, New Jersey, the city where Lincoln Tech opened its first campus in 1946. Alumni, employer partners, political figures, and past and current members of Lincoln’s leadership were on hand to celebrate a tradition of career training excellence dating back to the end of World War II. Hundreds of thousands of students have graduated from Lincoln schools since its inception.
“This was such an exciting night for all of us at Lincoln Tech,” says Scott Shaw, Lincoln Tech’s President and CEO. “What an honor to have shared the evening with so many who influenced, and were influenced by, Lincoln’s rich history. We were especially privileged to be joined by Jeff Davies, the son of Lincoln’s founder.”
Davies’s father, entrepreneur J. Warren Davies, opened the first Lincoln Tech campus on Newark’s Market Street in 1946. He wanted to assist World War II veterans convert the skills they had built in the military into career skills back home in America.
Among the speakers was Lincoln Tech alum Carlton Rose, President of Global Fleet Maintenance and Engineering for UPS. Rose is a graduate of Lincoln Tech’s Indianapolis campus, where Diesel and Truck Technology training helped him build the skills and launch a career that would eventually lead him to play a pivotal role with the global shipping leader. Rose is now a member of Lincoln’s Board of Directors.
“To be able to sit on the Board of the school where you walked the halls and worked in the shops is [a responsibility] I don’t take lightly,” Rose said. “In the role that we play at Lincoln, [we] have the opportunity to change people’s career paths and their lives.”
Rose himself has hired dozens of Lincoln Tech graduates for positions with UPS over the last 30 years, adding, “it’s always an honor to hire Lincoln students.”
Career Education Colleges and Universities (CECU), a national organization representing postsecondary career education schools, was represented by the group’s President and CEO Jason Altmire. “I hope you understand how valuable the work is that you’re doing,” Altmire told the audience. “[It is] an inspiration to me and so many others, and I truly appreciate the opportunity to be here tonight.”
The evening featured Skeery Jones of iHeart Radio who served as Master of Ceremonies for the event, as well as a number of additional guest speakers including:
