TRT - Testosterone Replacement Therapy in Mahwah, NJ

Let's Talk!

 HRT For Men Mahwah, NJ

What is Testosterone?

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:

  • Facial Hair
  • Body Hair
  • Deeper Voice
  • Muscle Strength
  • Increased Libido
  • Muscle Density

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.

How Does TRT Work?

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 – 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.

What Causes Low T?

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.

Low Sex Drive

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.

Inability to Achieve and Maintain an Erection

Weak erections – 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.

Loss of Strength and Muscle Mass

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.

Hair Loss

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.

Gynecomastia

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

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.

Lack of Sleep

A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels – 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.

Depression

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 – 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.

Inability to Concentrate

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 – 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.

Weight Gain

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.

What is Sermorelin?

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.

 HRT For Men Mahwah, NJ

Benefits of Sermorelin

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:

  • Better Immune Function
  • Improved Physical Performance
  • More Growth Hormone Production
  • Less Body Fat
  • Build More Lean Muscle
  • Better Sleep
 Human Growth Hormone Mahwah, NJ

What is Ipamorelin?

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.

 Ipamorelin Mahwah, NJ

Benefits of Ipamorelin

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:

  • Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
  • More Muscle Mass
  • Less Unsightly Body Fat
  • Deep, Restful Sleep
  • Increased Athletic Performance
  • More Energy
  • Less Recovery Time for Training Sessions and Injuries
  • Enhanced Overall Wellness and Health
  • No Significant Increase in Cortisol

DUMONT – Daniel McClanahan stepped on the field with almost nothing to play for but pride. Nothing else was needed to continue Mahwah's winning tradition over Dumont.

A team that's down 10 starters and well outside a playoff spot stunned a state tournament-bound Huskies lineup on Friday night.

McClanahan scored a career-high three touchdowns and Ryon Arsala snuffed out a late onside kick attempt to lift the Thunderbirds (2-6) past Dumont (6-2), 20-13, in the SFC American Red.

What looked like a mismatch based on records and mutual opponents turned into a satisfying moment for new coach Adam Szuch and his band of three senior starters. The Thunderbirds held off Dumont behind a late interception by free safety Steven Lewis, who was playing out of position because of a 104 fever to the team's starter.

"I told them don't quit on me. I won't quit on you," Szuch said. "These kids got a lot of pride, man."

Check out the photo gallery, then continue reading.

Szuch, who spent the last 15 years on staff as an assistant, used that attitude and some fearless playcalling with a depth chart in disarray.

The Thunderbirds went for it on fourth down twice from their own end, tried a fake field goal (unsuccessfully) and recovered a squib kick to start the game. They leaned on a freshman at middle linebacker and a senior captain who's battling through a broken hand.

All three of the Thunderbird scores came from a converted wide receiver in McClanahan at QB. He scrambled for back-to-back touchdowns after finding Arsala on an 18-yard score on his team's second drive. McClanahan also served as the team's hard-hitting strongside linebacker with the starter and backup both sidelined.

"Coach said coming into the game that we have nothing to lose," McClanahan said. "It's another football game for us. They are a state playoff team. We knew we wanted to come in and show what Mahwah is."

What it means

Mahwah is still unbeaten against Dumont in 14 matchups and all but two have been decided by double-digits.

Media speculation about the streak coming to an end provided some added motivation for the Thunderbirds. Dumont had won its last five games and was fifth in powerpoints in North Group 2.

"It's such a great feeling," Arsala said. "I'm so proud that we didn't let anyone down that played in the past."

Turning points

Mahwah was able to build a 20-0 lead after Omar Ahmed forced a fumble on the first Dumont possession. McClanahan spun off a tackle four plays later and spotted Arsala wide open in the left side of the endzone for the receiver's first career touchdown. It was the start of a breakout game for Arsala, who stretched the field with four catches for 102 yards in his first start on offense.

"He knows how to play football and he finds openings," McClanahan said of the fellow junior. "I'm excited for him next year too."

Dumont came to life in the second half after going down three scores. Joseph Gessner put the Huskies on the board with a 21-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter. Anthony Piccinich got Dumont within a touchdown with a six-yard keeper with 1:07 left, but Mahwah was able to fall on the ensuing kickoff.

"I'm just proud that we did all the little things right tonight for a change," Szuch said. "We didn't turn it over. We didn't get in our way. We executed. And we showed that Mahwah at 1-6 is a good football team. That's what we've been trying to prove all year."

Pascack Valley prioritizes defense, set pieces in playoff win over Mahwah

Junior midfielder Tara Stewart did what she usually does on corner kicks. She crossed the ball into the box in front of the net, where it bounced roughly four yards out and into just enough space where senior defender Tori Criscuolo buried the ball from in close on the bounce.

That goal with 22 minutes left was the only one Pascack Valley needed to down Mahwah and advance to the North 1, Group 2 semifinals after making it to the sectional finals a year ago.

But balls were bouncing all over the turf at Pascack Valley on Saturday, as the game quickly became about winning 50/50 balls, settling it and then possessing it as opposed to being possession oriented from the onset. More often than not, the 50/50 balls were won and then settled before being sent back in to the air again, almost like clockwork.

Criscuolo’s physical play, and her height, were key to winning a lot of Pascack Valley’s pivotal 50/50 balls, just as they’ve been the keys to her scoring most of her goals this year.

Normally, when Stewart fires the ball in on a free kick or corner, she’s looking for Criscuolo’s head, not necessarily her feet, and for good reason.

“Tori and I connect really, really well off of corners. That’s something her and I look to capitalize on. Because Tori is tall, she’s got that vertical, she’s able to jump and she’s willing to head the ball,” Stewart said. “That’s something we really look to capitalize on and really make sure we’re trying to get it on her head.”

The sweeper for the Panthers, Criscuolo has six goals this year, which is third on the team.

“Obviously my height definitely helps me out there,” Criscuolo said. “I’ve always been a defensive minded player and I’ve grown to be comfortable in the back line. But this year luckily enough, I’ve been able to go in for corners and try use my height as an advantage and score these corners and I’ve been lucky enough to put them in.”

Stewart is so confident in Criscuolo’s prowess to head the ball and bury it in close that Pascack Valley is more than happy relying on corner kicks or free kicks when the ball gets in its offensive third of the field.

And though players like Julia Conjour can and do score from anywhere for the Panthers, it’s when the situation calls for a set piece that the team is equally confident.

“We’re very well aware that if we go to the end line, we try to get that corner because most of our goals have come off of kicks, so we do look to try and get those because we’re super dangerous with Tori in the box,” Stewart said.

But Pascack Valley isn’t just dangerous with Criscuolo in the box. She anchors a defense in front of goalie Allison Varghese that has helped record six shutouts this season and hasn’t allowed more than one goal in its last five games.

It’s a defensive unit that first-year coach Leah Jerome has referred to as both “stingy” and “pieces of granite” on the back line, and the numbers bear that out.

Stewart does her part, too as a defensive center midfielder, working closely with Criscuolo and her other midfielders to facilitate the offense.

“A lot of the success is built off of the defense. So if we don’t have a strong defensive line, then it’s really hard to move the ball forward,” Stewart said. “It starts at the back and works its way up and then through that, we’re able to find the back of the net.”

A lot of times, the ball working its way up involves Criscuolo or someone on the defensive line finding a midfielder, who then finds a forward and gets the ball in PV’s offensive third.

From there, the cycle repeats — play the ball to the end line, try to get a kick and let Criscuolo go to work in deep.

“It’s more fun playing both sides and I might be a little winded running back after corners but I definitely enjoy it,” she said.

Criscuolo, Stewart, Varghese, Conjour and everyone else on this team are enjoying the ride so far in Jerome’s first year, but they’re in no way ready for it to end — especially after making the sectional final a year ago as a sign of what’s possible with this group of players.

And though Jerome isn’t new to coaching — she was previously an assistant coach at Immaculate Heart and Pascack Valley and the head coach at Glen Rock and Creskill — she’s new to this team and wants to make sure the legacy is carried on and expanded on.

“I always set high standards as a coach. I know it was a transitional for them adapting to a new coach. I told them after the game, I’m so proud of the journey we’ve been on,” Jerome said. “We’ve all bought in to the same team goals. These girls had success as a program and I feel a sense of duty and obligation to maintain that. They want to win and make a deep run in states, so I’m going to meet them halfway and do my best to try and get them there.”

Men's Soccer Advances to ECAC Semifinal After Overtime Thriller at Ramapo

MAHWAH, N.J. — The New Jersey City University men's soccer team, led by a stellar goalkeeping effort for the shutout, defeated Ramapo College in the Quarterfinal Round of the 2022 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Men's Soccer Championship today, Sunday, Nov. 13. The Roadrunners hosted the two-round pod this weekend as the top seed, getting a bye into today's quarterfinals, while NJCU was seeded #2. The Gothic Knights defeated Ramapo 1-0 in overtime for its first win over the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) rival since 2012.

Jersey City (12-5-2) earned a spot in today's match following its 2-0 win in the First Round yesterday, Saturday, Nov. 12, over Saint Elizabeth University, also on Ramapo's campus. Today, the Gothic Knights were outshot 12-3 in on-target attempts by the Roadrunners (6-7-4), however the combination of senior keeper Nick Linebaugh (Linden, N.J./St. Benedict's Prep) — nine saves — and rookie netminder Khalid Kwaik (Montville, N.J./Montville Township) — three saves — pitched a team shutout to keep NJCU in it.

At the same time, the Gothic Knights' first true opportunity came early in the second half as sophomore forward Danny Tobon (Clifton, N.J./Clifton) landed one on goal in the 57th. The first-year Green and Gold wing player then rang one off the crossbar in the 75th for NJCU's next solid scoring chance. However, after 90 minutes of play, neither squad was able score and for the first time this season, the Gothic Knights headed to overtime.

In a strange turn of events, Linebaugh was called for a red just one minute into overtime for touching the ball with his hands outside of the 18-yard box. Due to that, Kwaik came in for the first time since September 9 and promptly saw a barrage of Roadrunner shots. The rookie immediately had to make a stop on the free kick that stemmed from the aforementioned red card. He then saw three Ramapo corners, which turned into two more shots on goal in the 94th and 97th, but he again stopped them both to keep it scoreless.

Finally, in the final minute of the first overtime period, freshman midfielder Juan Vizcaino (Clifton, N.J./Clifton) struck gold — quite literally — in the 100th minute as Tobon set up his teammate for the game-winning golden goal. The tally, Vizcaino's fourth of the season and Tobon's team- and NJAC-leading ninth assist, put NJCU up 1-0 for the victory.

Up Next: Jersey City now takes a week off before returning to action next Saturday, Nov. 19, for the ECAC Semifinal at a to-be-determined location. This is the first time since 2012 that the Gothic Knights have advanced to the ECAC Semifinal.
